"No Performance Requirement in SCUBA Diving is more poorly defined or less often achieved than....Buoyancy Control."

Most SCUBA Instructors tell themselves that their Buoyancy Control SKILLS are "GOOD ENOUGH!"
Then they show up for their first day of CAVE DIVER Training...."THAT'S WHEN THINGS GET MESSY!"
Our workshops are about sharing the kind of Buoyancy Control Skills & the kind of kick; [Frog  Kick]
that are  needed in order to "just show up" on the first day of a CAVE DIVING CLASS.

WE KNOW WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE!............DO YOU??????
The kind of FUNDAMENTAL DIVE TALENT that many or most OW Instructors do not have on that day.
IF YOU'RE NOT THINKING ABOUT PUTTING A SMILE ON A CAVE INSTRUCTOR'S FACE, ANY TIME SOON....THAT'S OK!
You'll still be nothing less than a diver with "CAVE DIVER WORTHY FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS"!

EVERY DIVER SHOULD WANT NOTHING LESS THAN THAT!
TRY TO IMAGINE
A world in which 199 out of every 200 people stumbled around like toddlers or drunks.
NOW YOU KNOW....
 
...how the aquatic world looks to the less than one half of one percent of divers who have excellent Buoyancy Control Skills



Maybe you think that we exaggerate...and that it really isn't that bad?
MAYBE you have settled for...less?

Perhaps you bought into the myth that; "It's all about your equipment"
or "how good your crawl stroke is" or "how many plastic cards you have!"

MAYBE YOU NEED TO: SET YOUR BAR HIGHER?
Maybe it's time to look past the 3 & 4 letter acronyms....time to look beyond...."The Statis Quo"?
MENTORS
Leadership level divers [ instructors ] who fail to share Buoyancy Control SKILLS because they have none..........
or because they keep that talent to themselves in order to preserve their own STATUS...."ARE NOT MENTORS!"

POSITIVE BUOYANCY
a "not so funny event" when this diver got too
much air
in his dry suit and quickly became:

" THE PREFERRED BUOY "

THIS DIVER IS TYPICAL
Sculling with the hands, too many weights,
too much air in the BCD, too many dangling
 octos & consoles and too many hose halos:

"DON'T BE THIS DIVER!"
BuoyancyQuest's SCUBA SKILLS WORKSHOP is "not" where your DIVE Trip Leader  makes card collecting easier.
IT'S  A DIVE TRAVEL VACATION where you bring home more than just photos & t-shirts?

Too many Tech Diving Courses are "no more than"
"DRESS UP AND PRETEND" SCUBA CLASSES


Most instructors who are selling "BUOYANCY SKILLS" think it's best to dress in:

"CAVE OR TECH DIVING GEAR!"
"WE DON'T!"

MOST DIVERS DON'T REALLY VALUE BUOYANCY SKILLS!


"WE DO!"
buoyancy control SKILLS
You don't need to dress as a:
TECH-DIVER
in order to demonstrate
GOOD DIVE SKILLS!

GOOD BUOYANCY SKILLS
are not just for TECH-DIVERS

 "OPEN WATER SIDEMOUNT" is an example of, what we think is: a very expensive "DRESS UP & PRETEND CLASS"

ESPECIALLY....IF: you show up for it without perfecting your fundamental skills "FIRST"!

YOU CAN BE MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER TOURIST WITH A C-CARD IN YOUR POCKET....
STOP! ...being "only" A CUSTOMER & A CASH COW.
BUOYANCY CONTROL SKILLS are the FOUNDATION OF EVERYTHING ELSE YOU WILL EVER DO DIVING!
"YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO LEARN THEM FIRST!"
They're not just something you pick up along the way....So beware of people who tell you: "Just dive more!"
WHO REALLY WANTS TO LEARN:

" Buoyancy Control SKILLS"

Most divers are in such a hurry to collect c-cards and to buy fancy dive gear and to score bragging rights that they allow the proverbial cart to get in front of the horse. 
Make no mistake....
SCUBA Diving is an EGO Sport!  
SO FAR....fundamentals such as Buoyancy Control have managed to not become an "ego trip" or attract very much attention from most of the diving community. Perceived STATUS is more important than actual competence with fundamental skills.

WE "ONLY" MENTOR FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS.
We "pull no punches & take no prisoners".

IF you have nothing to learn....we can't help you!

HOW THINGS REALLY ARE IN DIVE TRAINING
There is a photo on the internet ( you will know it if you see it ) of 3 divers kneeling on a gravel bottom. They are all wearing back mounted double tanks and have a stage bottle clipped to their harness. We can't/won't tell you where to find it or who posted it because that would not be professional. The fact that it was taken during a "deep technical instructor course" and that the agency [ a big one ] didn't know better than to post and take credit for this image...is not professional....but not surprising either!  It is important to know the difference between really learning Fundamental Dive SKILLS or paying for a "dress up and pretend" technical diving course! UNLESS, of course, you're paying with "play money".

BUYER BEWARE: This same agency, that doesn't do well training beginners....now offers OPEN WATER SIDEMOUNT!
