    Rebreather Introduction in Greece

    We had a very nice event yesterday in Greece.
    ANDI Hellas and Aqua Team dive center, organized a CCI course in Athens. The course was taught by Takis Vournas, ANDI representative in Greece, assisted by me. 11 participants enjoy diving with CCRs and enjoy for the first time diving the way only rebreather divers know :)
    The conclusion after the event was that at least diving the rebreathers is absolutely excited and many guys will buy soon one.
    That's good news!
    That was the first really official introduction for rebreathers in Greece and we hope that soon we will see more events.
    Already a couple of courses are organized for end of May.
    The rebreather used for the intro dives (even I do not think that this is important issue) were Meg, Kiss and Submatix. The important issue is the event by it self and the very big success.
    Congratulations to all.
    Manthos
