Hi all, I have just got back from Sharm with my PADI open water qualifiacation. I am keen to get back in the water and get some practice in as I don't feel that confident!! I would aqppreciate any advice people have to offer about what to do next! I am based in Kent so can anyone recommend a dive centre locally etc. I don't know any other divers so am on my own with this one. Many thanks, HA x

I,am always happy to help new divers to gain experience I know how hard it was I had no one to dive with when I first qualified until I discovered UK Diving back in 2000 I,am a PADI instructor and often dive at Leybourne Wraysbury Stoney Cove and Guildy at this time of year as coastal dives donít start till about April I,am off to Wraysbury Sunday 2nd March your happy to join drop me a mail if your interested one thing to remember the water temp at the moment is 9 degrees hardly Sharm temps you really need to consider a dry suit for this time of year

Welcome to the wonderfull world of Diving.

Dont worry we all started feeling very much the same way. I can rember thinking ok im qualified but what do i do with it now?

Divers are a friendly lot and you will soon build up a network of "Buddies"

If you ever find yourself in the Selsey area (nr Chichester & Bognor, west Sussex), drop me a line and we can dive

regards and dive safe
