Scuba diving and finger joint problems 7-Feb-2007 At 11:53:09 PM DJ Biggs
I'm just saying that I disagree with there being such a monopoly on diver training....and its open water course being dumbed down excessively for the masses leaving people unable to plan and execute their own dives (without extra courses) for the sake of expansion ($).
Though its easy to be an elite snob, watching people crash into coral fans just makes me cringe.

"PADI, currently recognized as the largest single entity in the diving industry with retail sales in excess of $250 million." ....didn't dig too deep but its a fairly profitable organisation isn't it?

I'm just bitter because I didn't do padi :) and it was $23 dollars worth of "vintage" 1962 notes, sheesh who could afford fifty.
