PADI IDC on Gili Air, Indonesia for November 2011 kicked off

Yesterday saw the start of the last PADI IDC of this year on Gili Air in Indonesia in conjunction with Oceans 5. Next year another 4 PADI IDC's are scheduled on Gili Air again, see you there in 2012!

Hans and Pablo during their theory exams

Originally we had 4 candidates but 2 jumped ship due to various reasons, just 4 days before the start of this course. Hans from the Netherlands and Pablo from Australia are attending though and so far it has been good in the classroom and in the pool.

Buddy check before the start of a skill circuit

It's good to be back on Gili Air again and enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere on this small island. There are excellent weather conditions.

Deep water entry with a giant stride

The PADI IE for Hans will starting be 2nd December on Bali whilst Pablo is aiming for an IE in Australia later this year or early next year. Hans lives in Bali which makes it easy for him to attend.

PADI skill circuit, the alternate air source skill

Christophe who staffed the recent IDC on Koh Samui should have been staffing this IDC again but he got bitten by a mosquito whilst holidaying on Bali in-between the two IDC programs and is now in a hospital on Lombok. Good luck to you Christophe and hope you recover soon!

Rescue exercise #7, unconscious diver at the surface

If you're interested in participating in one of my PADI IDC's, the last program of this year will start 5th December in Khao Lak, Thailand or have a look at my current schedule.
