How to Spot a Diver, Seasoned Diver & a Newbie Diver

Post Number:#1  Postby run » Wed Sep 28, 2011 2:16 pm

You can spot divers by:
* Funny Tan Lines
* Big Watch
* Says "Huh" alot
* Scars from trigger fish bites
* Expertise on anti-histamines (burrp!) 

You can spot old time divers by:
* Funny Tan Lines
* Big Expensive Watch
* Old Jeep with bad shocks
* Log Book has volume number on cover
* Deaf in at least one ear
* Has multiple scars.
* Has cylinders older than you are
* Talks about making their first wet suit
* Dive gear is faded
* Limps from Dysbaric Osteonecrosis

You can spot newbie divers by:
* Sunburned
* Timex Watch
* Nice car
* Fills in all the blanks in their logbook
* No diving related scars
* Says "Wow, did you see that" alot
* Equipment looks nice
* Perfect hearing

:P

has snorkel on his mask AND keep kicking with their legs and hands moving altogether all the time.. :D
the way that works for me is watch and learn from other experienced diver..so they won't really realize that you're actually a newbie.. B-)

frankly speaking ,i dont know what is the point of this topic. you see ,you are certified to the type of diving corresponding to your training. the topic starter  might as well, ask  were you trained by a  truly qualified  or a half past sick instructor ?

Just for your info, I have seen some instructors who are 'half past six'.!and.. DM that lead lead you to 'holland'!


My philosophy is dont blame the student instead blame the teacher .

Since everyone is speaking about sunburn and tan, there this one local product by the name TABLOQ produce by yours truly the MUW mascot himself Mr Seasir. It seems that this product when applied on the face and any expose surface of the skin, helps to reduce the feeling of tightness due to the sunburn and minimise the tan itself.
The only bad side about it, you'll be like the bride or the groom of the frankenstein before you wash it off.
