The June PADI IDC finished with a large celebration at Gran Escape once again. It was a Georgia/Georgia party in Manuel Antonio. With examiner Georgia Hausserman coming down and visiting our humble little dive center the heat was on as the three instructor candidates set about completing the examination. After 10 days of preparation, exams, confined water work, dives and more everyone was ready, and with the world cup first round games playing in the background, we sat down for the exams. A day and a half later, we are celebrating once more as four new PADI scuba instructors head out into the wide scuba world! Awesome! Congrats to them all. One of the fun things was getting the chance to use our new classroom. A new, open air dedicated space purely for fun in the classroom! Yes, the classroom can be fun. It’s currently under refurbishment, as in I get to decorate it! Oh dear, that could be interesting. My creative mind is working 100 miles a minute!
So, now with that over we are on to the summer vacations and down time for Go Pro. The shop is busy with lots of eager beavers wanting to learn how to dive, and many people visiting on vacation exploring the area. I, on the other hand have taken a step back and come back to beautiful england for a month. I’ll be heading back for the next IDC which is due to start in August. No water for me for one month but plenty of time to start plotting and planning for the new season. What fun packed things will we have in store? Stay tuned and find out.
