Stuff you need to know…
Scuba is about learning – not about pride. Proud divers are those they find floating after mini-season. Always learn from your mistakes. Don’t be pushed to do anything with which you are not comfortable. Don’t dive with divers that take risks.
If you are diving with a diver that claims to have never made a mistake or thinks he/she is God’s gift to diving, you may want to dive with someone else. All “good” divers are constantly learning, making minor mistakes and learning.
Otherwise, train and dive – a lot… with a buddy. Unless you are tec certified. And have fun!!!
