Today, we began a PADI Open Water course with Laura, and thought it would be good to record her progress.
Laura is from Germany and is spending 3 weeks in Thailand with her friends travelling. Her father is a diver, and his passion has been passed on to Laura, who has wanted to become a qualified diver for some time.
She collected her Open Water manual yesterday, and spent the afternoon and evening studying it. She arrived at the dive centre this morning for a 9am start and sat on our pier watching the DVD’s.After she had worked her way through them, she had a break and then Gary showed her the kit she will be using during her dives. He taught her how to put the equipment together and take it apart, which she found very interesting.
As the sea was amazingly clear today, we carried out her confined water dives off the beach next to our dive centre. She did really well and was relaxed and comfortable in the water.
Tomorrow, Open Water dives 1&2….
