You'll find that when you switch to a computer, especially if you purchase a nitrox computer & do the relevant course, that the current dive profiles you do, will keep you well in "no stop diving", profile due to the tables being based on a square dive profile.[b said:Quote[/b] (torbaydiver @ April 18 2004,17:36)]Thanks for replies, so it looks like its sports diver, I'm currently padi trained will eventually crossover!
I was only talking about short Deco stops, I was surprised that with just a couple of minutes deco it gave you another 10 minutes downtime!
All standard PADI dives should be non-decompression dives. If you want to do deco then you will need to take a technical course from TDI, PADI Tec-Rec, etc. or be trained by your BSAC branch.[b said:Quote[/b] (PressurE @ April 18 2004,18:46)]er... I may be wrong but I dont think PADI do deco dives.

It really depends on what is meant by "short". I always carry a D timer as well if I expect any more than a few minutes deco and go onto tables and two timers if I expect any more than about 10mins.[b said:Quote[/b] (RobK @ April 19 2004,12:51)]If you are diving even short deco dives relying on a computer then you need your head examined
