Ok i have a confession - I am going puddle diving tomorrow :redface: worse still there are places available on Neptune to dive off of Dover :(

I am doing this to get some of my Clubs new members through their first few Ocean Diver Open Water dives before we take them to Weymouth.

The Dilemma is the Diving Dude is going to join us :( to practice his shallow water buoyancy, well that should give them all a laugh anyway :) and stir all the crap on the bottom of the lake up :(

But how do i pass him off :confused:

Do i pretend he is not there and tell them to ignore the bloke who keeps asking me to sort his kit out :confused:

or

Would i be better off doing a separate safety brief about him, and warn them of the dangers of getting an Interwebbythingy dive buddy :confused:

Could this put them off Diving for good :confused:

All helpful suggestions welcome :)

I think if you show them 1 of Janos's famous T shirts they'll get the message :p

Do that!
& tell them that the interwebby thingy had spaces on boats all over the South Coast that they will be able to sign up for once the lakes (sea dives, exams, assesments etc) are over

Oh yes, remind them that attaining DiveGod status (a la Dude) takes LOTS of practice!

They call me MR PUDDLE !!!!

Puddle Paul, it's a perfect opportunity to show your students the dangers of kit excess and what can happen if you drift from the enlightened path of BSAC :D

Have a good one and please take some pics ;)

Safe diving,
Steve

He is going to do Buoyancy practice - so i doubt his weightbelt will make it :)
