Hi i'm an O/W diver and am looking to get my dives up. I know the season is coming to a close but am looking for anyone who dives inland regularly or interested in shore dives. I'm a shift worker so can do weekend or mid week. All this enthusiasm and no buddy is driving me crazy!!!

Hi
Where abouts are you based ? If anywhere near the Northwest drop me a line and we'll see if we can sort something out. We normally dive Dorothea, Fron, Vivian (now and again), the lakes etc. Also shore dives off North Wales, and occasional trips. We dive throughout the year, so don't worry about the season ending.

gbetley@hotmail.co.uk.

Thanks
Graham

I'm from Bristol and also looking for a dive buddy - for regular dive meets. I'm an OW with not a lot of experience but would like to get some doing shallower dives to begin with. Reply back here if interested.

Cheers

Andy

Hi, would be up for diving at stoney, not done much diving to date. looking to get AOW sort in next few weeks but after that want to get as many shallow(ish) dives in as possible.

Andy, ben both sounds good. I think it's important to have more than one contact incase another can't make it. I have not done stoney yet and would relish the chance. My nearest shore dive would be the sout coast littlehampton brighton etc but just as up for other inland. My next real available dates are 9th 10th 11th october. I may be available before this but i'll let you know.

Cool, email me here if you want to meet up. adtuk "@" yahoo.co.uk

Don't include the spaces or the speech marks. It just so I don't get spam email!

As said, any diving I do I want to be reletivley shallow at first i.e. 10 metres or less. It just to get my confidence up and to get used to diving with my kit. Would be looking for this to be a regular thing. Cheers.

I'm fine with weekends too. If you are struggling give me an email. Due to shift times i may be able to make it.

I too want to make this as regular as possible, i only have a semi dry at the mo but want to dive all winter right through.

Hi, I'm a PADI rescue divers (100ish dives ) but haven't dived for a 12 months or so. I live in South Wales, Newport area so close to Chepstow quarry. I'd be up for some shallow dives to get back confortable in the water. If anyone's interested reply back to this post and we can arrange something. Cheers, Craig.

Want to get AOW out of the way first (6th 7th Oct hopefully) but will then be in touch. Looking at Dosthill quarry also?


weekends are best for me.

regards

Ben

Maybe all four of us could get together?

My email is adtuk@yahoo.co.uk or text me on 07921160468

I remember last time diving with my dad, he's more advanced than me in qualifications but a bit of a cowboy diver. It was a nightmare diving with him! So a get together would be good so we could get back into the swing of things and start of walking before running so to speak. I have all my own kit and as said i'm in bristol. Where is everyone based?

Cheers,

Andy

I'm based in Newport area of South Wales. I'm fine with whenever anyone wants to go. Early Oct sounds good. If anyone's willing to travel down\up to Chepstow quarry that would be good for me. I'll email those who have given their emails as well to try and arrange something. Craig.

Chepstow quarry is 18 miles from me and would take no time at all to get their whereas vobster quay is mostly a+b roads which get busy.

I'd be interested, can you do weekends?

Just to be forewarned, will be pretty nervous to begin with, haven't dived for a while and believe in being honest rather than macho about these things!

Andy, yes I can do weekends. No worries about being nervous and honesty about diving is much better. I'm more than happy to spend several dives at 5 - 10m getting used to everything. Do you want to arrange something via email?
