I choose to blog this dive as a educational dive because I learned a lot doing it. It sais "idiot dive" in my log book. And so it was.

As you can see in my earlier blogs I have been in this dive site before. The Lagoon is beautiful! But...

I got a new buddy to dive with, we had never been diving together before. The bottom was 150 meters below us, so we had to be really careful and precise with how we howered. I did it really bad and got stressed. In the end of the dive I also changed buddy, it was not planned.

Conclution: If you dive with someone new, make sure to do a soft dive before you go anuwhere that can make you feel stressed. Make sure you know eachother well, and that you feel safe with yur buddy. If not - tell your buddy and get a new buddy or cancel the dive! Plan your dive, and keep your self to the plan at all times. To swap buddy during the dive is stupid, stupid, stupid!
