Over the past few months interest in Technical Diving has grown a huge amount on Koh Tao. Especially with the instructors who live and work on the island. Many of them feel that in order to keep them interested in the sport they have to keep it fresh by taking more courses or just diving in a new area. For experienced instructors the most logical way for them to go is the Tec Deep way.
That is exactly what Scott Edwards ( A long serving PADI instructor and Koh Tao resident) did. He signed up for the PADI Tech Deep course. This is a full decompression course and is the most advanced diving with air that you can do with PADI. Now as he as been an instructor for years he is considering taking the first level of Tec Instructor which means he would be able to certify Tec 40 divers. Although he needs to start logging some dives, he seems very keen on getting those dives up. He takes out gear whenever possible and goes on the “Tec Fun Dive” trips we run every now and then.
