EQUIPMENT: is the distraction that retards Fundamental SCUBA Skills Development.
STOP expecting your equipment to make you into a better diver!

" WE PREFER TO FROG KICK!"
"WE MENTOR BUOYANCY SKILLS!"

STOP Looking like an underwater chuck wagon with

all of that dangling equipment hanging down!

We can demonstrate exceptional fundamental skills where others only read to you from a prepared agency authored outline.

We are more than just rhetoric! More even than our own rhetoric!
We can "walk the walk"!

We'll show you how to be more than just another tourist with a C-CARD in your pocket and guide you
toward becoming the DIVER that you've always wanted to be.

STOP
doing the same dive...."over and over" in the same way,

....discover what to practice and improve on every dive!
FINE TUNE BUOYANCY BY BREATHING


"LOOK....NO HANDS!"
Has always been our motto....

BECAUSE : SCULLING
betrays: SUBSTANDARD DIVE SKILLS

"NEVER SCULLING"

defines:  GOOD BUOYANCY CONTROL!


< LEARN TO
Your skills are what define you as a diver.
Not your equipment.

No equipment regardless of price can
make up for substandard skills.

The best BCD is your lungs, your most
valuable tool is your brain!

Hands are needed for other tasks not
as aids for steering or propulsion.

STOP telling everyone what you don’t
know with useless hand signals.

STOP
SCULLING!

STOP kicking sand in everyone's face!
LEARN TO >
FROG KICK IS BETTER BECAUSE:
It doesn't cause silting when used close to the bottom and It reduces fatigue and extends dive time by not employing the large , oxygen hungry, muscles of the upper leg. It also does not promote rolling from side to side as the diver moves forward.
SOME FINS ARE NOT SUITED TO FROG KICKING
Some fins only provide an example of how wrong, and often expensive, equipment choices may sometimes actually retard
skill development or improvement.

DON'T FALL VICTIM TO DIVE INDUSTRY FADS!
"Split fins are a poor choice for frog kicking!"


DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN TECH DIVER NONSENSE


Jet or Rocket type fins were invented over 50 years ago, at a time when divers knew very little about buoyancy control and even less about frog kicking. Cave divers gave these fins a second chance because their weight eliminated any need to wear ankle weights. DON'T buy into the fantasy that these fins are "the best choice" or even "the only choice" for frog kicking. AND DON'T get caught wearing them "only" to be mistaken for a "tech diver".


Most any paddle fin works well for FROG KICK.

THINK!
Use that  valuable tool ( your brain ) when you
DIVE

......and when you   $hop!
SO FAR.....have you been learning to be a diver or A CUSTOMER???
STOP
Learning to be a "cash cow" and start learning to be a DIVER!!!
IF you came here looking  to learn "advanced nitrox" or perhaps "technical nitrox", you're in the wrong place..

We won't help you to learn "deep tech diving " where you wear lots of tanks "on both sides" and kneel on the bottom, like a beginner.

We don't disapprove of sidemount diving in a cave but do not like "open water sidemount" which we think is a "dress up and pretend" course that is good for the instructor's wallet but only plays to the student's ego.  SO we just say no to "Open Water SIDEMOUNT".

We wont take you to "swim with bull sharks" either..

WE WILL: help you re-visit "FIRST BASE" if you have a desire to excel at a dive skill that most others have ignored.

John had "high end" buoyancy skills before he showed up for his cave course. Both he and Maureen had perfected their fundamental SCUBA skills before attending  their instructor training.

THAT'S WHAT IS WRONG: almost everyone else fails to do that....BECAUSE of EGO! We think that "almost every diver" is looking for some glorious  conquest to call their own. No one wants to  perfect their fundamental SCUBA skills....FIRST!

You can do any and all of the things listed above "and more" if you have enough $$$$.  And don't worry...no one will require you to have good buoyancy.

One way to learn about better Buoyancy Control
is to meet us in: MEXICO
"FUNDAMENTAL SCUBA SKILLS ARE NOT [ JUST FOR & ABOUT ] TECHNICAL DIVERS!"
One training entity compares their course ( in minutes of underwater/bottom time ) to that of another agency that ( they say ) includes only about an hour of actual bottom time as part of the entry level SCUBA Class . They further claim that their own beginner program includes buoyancy training that is sufficient to eliminate any need for a  remedial buoyancy course. They claim to offer training (in low 3 figures ) when measured in minutes of bottom time.
 
WE OFFER “ONLY” REMEDIAL BUOYANCY TRAINING

The Cozumel Dive Operator that we employ for our workshops allows his clients to dive the limits of their gas and computers. We promise to show you how to optimize that opportunity. Our participants probably average 50-55 minutes per dive with some doing as much as 80 minutes by the last day of diving. So our 13 dives amount to 650+ minutes of bottom time devoted to improving SCUBA Fundamentals.
IS THAT TOO MUCH?
WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE OPERATORS ON COZUMEL WHO OFFER BIGGER TANKS FOR "AIR HOGS"!
We promise our divers that their times will improve using 80 cu. ft. aluminum tanks

STILL PHOTOGRAPHY
Only records how good a diver was for a fraction of a second. That goes for our photos, your photos and any other dive photos that you have ever viewed "on line" or in any certification agency materials or in dive magazine pictures.

VIDEOS are BETTER!

RECREATIONAL SCUBA DIVING IS A BUSINESS
( A business that does not really need to have "GOOD DIVERS"! ) 
A business that only needs "CUSTOMERS" who can meet the "MINIMUM" Diving Performance Requirements....
Standards that have been designed & established by the purveyors to facilitate their pay day and to secure their control
