Just thought I'd say hello - the names Paul and I come from way 'down saarf' though having mates in Lancashire Im well aquainted with the delights of Capernwray!

I'm a PADI instructor who's worked abroad and in the UK though I don't profess to know it all - look forward to joining some interesting debates !!

Cheers
Paul

Welcome on board Paul

There are many people from Lancashire on the website - some from further afield, but we all seem to get on OK.

Hope to see you soon at one of the venues.

Dive safe and ...

That's a simple one drift. Having spent the last 13 years wandering the planet diving, I've yet to come across one dive-centre worth the name that doesn't include some die-hard Instructor/smokers. Oh, and it's inter-agency mate, not just PADI. You should have seen the NAUI instructors in South Africa. 20-an-hour wallahs, all.

Welcome aboard Flash. Hope to see you on a wet soon and on these boards.

Take care,

Another Southern softie arrives - good, I was feeling lonely. I've got the Skull as well but I dont smoke at all, sorry Bren you might be wrong (that'll be a first) on this one. Paul welcome to the site, it seems a bit friendlier here, but at least we can still use the other one for a rant every now and again.

Hey Bin,

'Southern softies' to ranking northern machete-wielding 'bad-asses', like, say, Driftwood, are all welcome here mate. Oh, and the my posting referred to Instructors smoking and my experience of them, not the generality of this board.

Dive safe all,

Welcome to YD jjflash - its a g-g-gas... (sorry, I'll get me coat"
Yeah - Instructors and smoking - works with BSAC too, obviously I'm not a proper instructor 'cos I don't "really" smoke

Cheeers guys - thanks for the welcome!
Hope to see some of you in the water some time, me and the 'better half' (Tara-also OWSI) are always up for a bit of a splash - makes a change from 2 meter platforms !!

May well be up for a Oban or Wastwater trip first week of Nov with our mates from Lancs anyway - be intersted if anyone else may be up for it

Dive safe
Paul
