Yeah👏🏾 4 new PADI divers!
Hong Kong - Sai Kung final opening water challenge for my students.
Considering the poor visibility, they did GREAT!
Everyone was calm and finished their open water dives and executing their skills competently and reliably.
Fortunately / Unfortunately we ran into a panic diver at the surface and one of my students did a very good job! He instructed the diver to inflate his BCD and to breath from the reg / snorkel. He was calm helping the panic diver. I am proud! We found out that the panic diver had a huge cramp on both of his legs and had a hard time staying afloat.
Remember your skills! Cramps are painful and they are most common in the leg / foot muscles while diving. Practice "release cramp" skills at the surface and underwater to be well prepared for this rather common occurrence.
