Welcome Divers

Well, since is the first blog on this platform, I guess my first message should be to say "Hello" and "Welcome to the Scuba Tech Blog".

Why don't I introduce myself a bit?

I am Peter Crane, a diving instructor with my own Dive centre based out in Cyprus, which is a beautiful Island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.

It hasn't always been this perfect a life though. I first learned to dive in the cooler waters of the UK at a little Inland Site, you may have heard of called Stoney Cove. I was a BSAC Diver through and through, having learned diving under the excellent instruction of Roundhill Sub Aqua Club. During the day, I was a Postie.  I might even have delivered your mail to you back in the 1990s.

Today, I have 20 years + diving experience. I am (and have been) an instructor with many different agencies including; PADI, BSAC, TDI, IANTD, ITDA, meaning I can teach many different types of Scuba. My weeks are so varied that one day I might be taking in a beginner for a Try-dive Experience and the next I am penetrating shipwrecks on my Megalodon Rebreather or Sidemount Diving through the small swim through caves.

I love scuba diving and try to continuously update my knowledge and qualifications. This is one reason I completed the GUE Fundamentals course in 2011 and am looking to take the TECH1 training soon.

This even reaches to dryland where I try to keep up to date with new equipment, new configurations and ideas. As a service technician for most scuba equipment (regualtors, cylinders etc) this is extremely important to me.

This blog is a way for me to share my passion for the underwater world, my thoughts and reviews of different equipment and types of diving and just general words of guidance that I have picked up over the years.

I hope you enjoy what is to come and let me know your comments and thoughts.

In the meantime, safe Diving to one and all

Peter
