Adelaide Scuba says
Join GUE & PADI Instructor Josh for a SCUBA Workshop on SMB (Surface Marker Buoy) Deployment & Ascent Procedures.

This is a must for every keen diver who wants to know just a little bit more about diving, increasing your control underwater and most of all increasing your safety and your team/buddies safety underwater.

The workshop will consist of a short land based presentation on SMB’s and safety spools including suggestions on efficient ascent techniques. We’ll then take the plunge into our onsite indoor heated pool for a dive practicing these techniques whilst having some FUN in 30 degree water.

Led by one of South Australia’s most highly skilled dive professionals Josh has over 20 years of SCUBA experience and is passionate about sharing and educating divers to the highest of standards. Adelaide Scuba is proud to have Josh leading the way in developing SCUBA Workshops for the dive community.

"During my time as a diver I have witnessed many methods of deploying an SMB whilst managing ascents, some have been extremely successful causing minimal to no stress on the diver and their team though many have been with unnecessary stress and lack of control overall which for me is quite concerning with respect to diver safety and management. Whilst deploying an SMB is quite simple it is commonly seen that this activity is taking place negatively buoyant kneeling on the bottom of the sea floor... I ask is this realistic in real time diving i.e. drifting along a wall mid water? When mastering the art of SMB deployment, I believe, one should be neutrally buoyant managing not only their equipment but also maintaining buddy/team contact with a sound understanding of the 'What If's' and risk management techniques specific to the activity at hand." Josh D'Ambrosio, GUE Instructor, PADI Instructor & Managing Director of Adelaide Scuba.

Cost: $30 per person
Includes tank hire, pool entry, instructor fees & use of SMB’s & spools for the evening.
