Greetings! My name is Warren and I’m a new PADI Open Water Diver. Just thought this would be a neat place to meet fellow divers, learn more about the fascinating hobby, and make new friends. It took me two rounds to get the cert. Tried once around 2002 and couldn’t get past checkout dives. The bug to dive bit me again in 2018, and this time I was determined to get through it and I did! :)

I’m not sure if I will ever go pro or not. It’s a dream of mine but I have had anxiety troubles with diving in the past. I really want to overcome it and help others to overcome it as well. You wouldn’t believe how many times I had to practice mask removal and replacement. Now sitting in water with no mask is as comfortable and natural as it could be. I owe my success to the patience of the instructors for helping me battle the fears associated with diving. I’m looking forward to Advanced, Rescue. I’m sure I’ll at least take it that far if finances allow.

I dive a Tusa BCJ6900 wing, Sherwood SR-2 first/second, Tusa Duo air Octoflate, My computer is a Sherwood Vision air integrated, Fins Tusa Xpert Zoom (split), Mask Scubamax Pano II. I 3mm shorty, and a 5mm full suit.
