After the hectic pace of DEMA and the dealer open house we hosted afterwards, it was good to be back in the water teaching. I had two, midwest dive shop owners, plus their friend come down to North Florida for Full Cave. One shop happened to be a Dive Rite shop, the other was not. That’s okay with me. All the guys were good in the water and I gave them more than just a cave class.
As the week progressed, I made time to take the guys through our equipment line and gave them a taste of sidemount and the O2ptima. By the end of their class, they not only became certified Full Cave divers, but also found that they liked diving rebreathers.
This is what I enjoy about teaching and making gear. I don’t just teach the class, but give my students the advantage of experimenting with gear so they find what works best for them.
