    Here you go Sven - A nice story

    I'm teaching a Meg class to 3 great guys here in Perth this week. They are learning about CCRs for the first time in 2 of their cases and learning a new CCR in one. In short, the weather has been appalling here. These 3 have not only been a delight to teach they have reveled in the face of some very tough conditions.

    We have seen a broken compressor, 0-5m viz, driving rain, 120km/h wind and 3m breaking surf. This stuff is terrible to a seasoned CCR diver let alone someone on a class.

    Their attitude has been great. Granted they need to do some improvement for their last dive to get a pass but they have been tested by a new way of diving and very nasty conditions.

    Here is to the people that just like diving.

    Steve,

    Thanks for the heads-up & good luck to the students! Great story.

    And I do like (love?) your avatar - reminds me of Mark Twain! (A quote you can't find on US websites anymore due to PC)



    Cheerio!

    Good on them and you Steve.

    It is because of the odd course like that, that I love instructing.

    Have some green feller.

    Cheers,

    Dave Cooper.

    What does "PC" mean? Is it some sort of censorship?

    Congrats from me as well, being a barely passed student (a different instructor at a different location) learning skills in appaling weather conditions.

    As a former Perth resident (and fan), will need to visit there again.

    PC is Political Correctness. One of my favourite topics for Sunday mornings when there is no diving
