Wow, what a couple of weeks!

Categories:

Wow, what a couple of weeks Hylke and Emma have had! Hylke completed his PADI Rescue Course and PADI Deep Spec, whilst Emma really went for it and aced her PADI Open Water Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water diver courses – and, they both managed to get a decent amount of fun dives in, inbetween and after too!

Some of the instructors included Alex, for Hylke’s Rescue, with Boris, Paul, Jon, Jack and Paula as associated victims, kit handlers, victims, assessors and victims. Sue had it much easier with Emma’s courses. Don’t know what Bossman is doing there – think he just likes having his photo taken.

Well done both of you, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Fitness for Scuba Diving – The myths!

Categories:

When considering the subject of fitness and diving, it’s important debunk inaccurate information and avoid myths.

Obviously, fitness for scuba diving is important, but it’s equally as important to understand that determining physical fitness for diving is not as obvious as one might think. Scuba diving itself is not supposed to be a workout; we learn early in our dive training to avoid exertion at depth. If diving feels difficult or you are tired after diving, exercising on dry land will help you prepare for the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the sport, as well as increase your comfort in the water and your overall enjoyment of diving. When examining the subject of fitness for scuba diving on a closer level, it’s key to find accurate information and avoid myths. read more →

By 2050, the Ocean Will Contain More Plastic Than Fish!

Categories:

The report, which was based on the opinions of 180 environmental experts and produced by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, serves as a horrifying wake-up call to the reality of plastic pollution.

It’s a sobering statistic: According to a report recently published by the World Economic Forum, ocean plastic trash contaminating our seas may outweigh the fish remaining there by 2050. The report, which was based on the opinions of 180 environmental experts and produced by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, serves as a horrifying wake-up call to the reality of plastic pollution. read more →

Eat Chocolate Before Diving — Really

Categories:

Eat chocolate before diving — it’s not only delicious, it’s good for your dive health. Chocolate on the outside soothes the skin; chocolate on the inside soothes the soul and much more. Giving someone chocolate as a romantic gesture is no coincidence; it has long been touted for its aphrodisiac qualities. When ingested in small amounts, chocolate helps energize the body during exercise and assists post-workout replenishment of muscles. Best of all, chocolate has properties that help maintain heart health for divers and reduce the physiological stresses associated with decompression sickness (DCS), aiding in post-dive recovery.

There is still a lot of discussion among researchers about the variables and specifics of how cocoa works positively on cardiovascular health, physical performance, and reducing risks of DCS, but it does. Generally speaking, outcomes point to activation of nitric oxide (NOS) and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. read more →
