Tek Diving in Thailand
Three new technical divers join the ranks of card carrying twinset masters.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrate the graduation of Damien Stewart, Lin Wang and James Ferrie from their TDI Intro to Tech Course course conducted over 2 days on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand by TDI Instructor Ash Dunn and assisted by Ian Jordan.
The TDI Intro to Tech Course is the entry level technical diving certification which gives the student the ability to wear a twin set with isolator manifold to their own recreational depth limit. This gives the diver the freedom and comfort of technical diving equipment with the investment of money or time in a full tech course allowing them to progress through the modular system of TDI in their own time.
Additionally this allows the students to rent a set of tech gear and continue learning at any location around the world.
The skills covered in this course include advanced propulsion techniques including the infamous backwards frog kick, gas management, isolating problems and using redundancy along with trim and control in technical gear.
The students return to the realm of recreational diving, we’re confident they’ll return soon for the next challenge.
