Hey all I am booked to do my PADI OW on 9th Aug 08 this is something ive been wanting to do for some time now however i have chickened out from doing it in the cold murky waters of Wraysbury and have opted for Sharm.

However once I am back I would be interested in meeting with people to buddy with, I am a shift worker so can do weekdays and weekends I live and work in the Heathrow area.

Look forward to hearing from you

Thankyou for your replies, didnt expect to get any being so green and all. Wil need to buddy with someone patient and fun who has lot's of experience that I can learn more from.

I will also need some info on where to hire equipment ect as dont want to purchase any till I know diving in the UK is for me and am well and truly hooked.

hey there

Just retured from Sham and Im thinking of diving in the UK however can someone tell me do I now need to do a DRY suit course ??

Hi Cassandra,
Yes i think you will find you do need to do a drysuit course. As it will teach you a few important things. I am also lead to believe (PADI book) that some dive centres asked for proof of training in a drysuit before they will hire one to you.

in answer to you your orig post.. I would love to have a buddy down south for trips to the south coast if your interested

if you need to do a drysuit course they do one at wraysbury i think it is about 30 or 40 pounds
