Yeah....and the same trigger fish that bit me & gave me a scar on my right leg when doing dive with Ijad, Azmi's son. Maybe it taught I'm relative to Azmi....long live Azmi dive.....

Azmi is the most unpretensious dive guru I know, no flash just pure professionalism; My favourite and my kids favourite Dive Boss. But how does he breathe? He must have gills? he hardly uses any air, you watch him for exhale bubbles and they look like tiny tiny stream from pinhole leak!! He goes down with 200bar and comes back with 180bar. Serious Guru :D

Yeah...I was asking the same question too...he said to me the secret is to relax while you breathing. Some says like smoke a cigar. I learn the way he breath then I found its working but of course I cant challenge him. He dive with me for 55 minutess but still have 120 bars...amazing that!!

Bro Opu, pokta here.

bila nak dive dgn azmi again? we are planning to go there end march or early april. squid mating season. call me.

words ab azmi? hmm dont know what to say.. you have to meet the guy..one of a kind, definitely, ezzaq is pretty damn cool too. gunn is ok, but not sure whether she'll be back for this season. but imho, it is not just ab azmi, its salang itself. salang, by far is the best or among the best place for budget diving cum vacation ala hippie compare with all the east coast diving island. good and cheap food and loggin, lively nightlife, plenty of kind hearted people, quite secluded beach and of course close to all tioman diving spot. i would rate long beach of redang at a very close second. just lack the nightlife atmosphere..but the redang sand.. the whitest i've ever seen.

I started diving with azmi under Bro Opu's advise back sometimes ago, and never failed to come back there again.. and again.. and again.. every single year. tq bro! or maybe i ter skipped during the year i got married. ouch..

my 2 cents.

hi folks,

I can tell you a bit about Azmi. He is probably one of the most experienced instructors on the island. And he has probably taught most of the instructors/dms you see on tioman. He isn't one to collect rank or meaningless qualifications but you can bet your last ringgit that when it comes to diving & instructing, there isn't much he doesn't know. His age is a secret but he can dive like a navy seal... I've seen him surface with more air in his tank than when he started his descent! :laughing11:  He has got plenty of diving stories of whalesharks and mantas coming to tioman. Great guy... dive with him and he won't forget you ever... go back again and he will welcome you like family... Azmi gets many people (locals and foreigners alike) returning to dive with him year after year (I feel that this alone speaks A LOT about the man). Just don't play darts with him expecting to win. :D

Gunn is currently working at the Red Sea, by the way, so not coming back at least for this season.

Pokta has done a good job of describing Salang... I would add the spectacular sunsets to that list, not to mention the varied dive sites! Wrecks, hard coral sites, soft coral sites, swim thrus, macro... To me Salang is a very special place and everytime I go back it feels like home.

my dua sen.

Its all the truth, I have known him, last weekend we were at Azmi's. The swim through were exciting, adrenaline rush, fun and exhilarating. Izzat was leading the dive. The S'porean are going separate ways. Well they were washed away out to the open. Though I am quite a diver and quite a rating diver, I put my respect to the local DM.

Thought of going again end July towards August, see first laa. Azmi said it is the best dive time in the calendar.
I stayed in the budget chalet. Nothing else are more than important than having something that are basic and there.

So whats the plan.

great place. awesome people!
reasonable pricing.

the last time i went there is on feb (CNY).
still monsoon. few shore dives (just grab the tank and go) but viz is bad.
there are surge, waves and sediments all over. heavy rain occasionally. it was like raining for 15 minutes and paused for one to two hours, and then suddenly, rain again. fuhhh.

ezzaq guide us for our last dives. a very bright and sunny day.
few memorable moment happen.
saw dead fish that had not been eaten by others. everything is fully intact. might be a lot of food here.
and then something unimaginable happen, we saw a few meters away a turtle having a meal - rare sighting near the jetty. might be because only two boats that enter tioman daily during monsoon season. went near the turtles but he/she ignores us. awesome.
and 2 moray eels that have colors just like nudibranch (several waves of light blue, yellow and black) under one coral. wonder what they were doing...

viz is super chun on that very last dive. sadly, forgot to bring camera.
