    Inspiration Trydive

    I'm finally booked on an Inspiration try-dive next week.

    I don't know if it's a good or bad thing as if it goes well and I'm lovin it I'm going to be wanting to get on the course straight away - which financially isn't good at the moment!

    However, if goes tits up and I can't wait to get the bloody thing off my back, SWMBO will be happy that I am no longer going on about the bloody thing.

    Any pointers anyone can give me on what to expect?

    It's a good thing, cos you'll love it and want one, and a bad thing, as you'll want one NOW and will have to sell a kidney to feed your new obsession!! That's what happened to me (well, I didn't have to sell a kidney!)

    Yep, that's what I'm worried about :D

    Also not sure it's a good idea as I do not honestly think I'm ready for one skill-wise.
    I mean, I have all the pre-req's, but I'm of the view that I could do with alot more dives before I go down the RB route.

    Still, will be good fun and diving on OC with a RB diver is awesome - like doing a solo but not being solo if you know what I mean. - SILENCE!!!!!!

    Anyhow, I'm booked on so I'll see what happens.

    Watch the bouyancy go out the window!

    What makes you say that ?

    I was probably in a similar situation - far less o/c experience than most new RB divers. But rather than spend another couple of years doing o/c, going onto trimix, and then having to start the whole damn thing again after swapping to RB, I figured I may as well just make the change now and progress on RB.

    Personally, I can't ever see myself diving o/c again, unless I'm on holiday and for some reason can't take my unit . . . . or hire one . . . . . or borrow one . . . . . or steal one . . . . or build one from used cigar cartons . . .

    You get the picture :)

    What Skeletor said. It's a different route, not just an extension. I think the OC stuff I did will have helped, but I'm glad I didn't waste too much time before getting the Box...

    none,

    OK maybe a bit more than that
    er good bouyancy control - ie be happy with your buoyancy going tits up and reacting

    paying attention

    er pretty much be willing to start from scratch and accept that you'll be all over the shop to start with :p
