The third volume in a trilogy that, collectively, spans the spectrum of diving proficiency, author and respected dive industry professional, Simon Pridmore’s latest offering, ‘Scuba Fundamental: Start Diving the Right Way’, goes back to basics with a book aimed at ‘flattening the molehills’ and making the decision to take up diving the enjoyable and exhilarating experience that we all believe it should be.
Rather than being another, “How to …“, book focussed exclusively on an audience who are already taking their first tentative steps – or fin-kicks? – towards diving competence, ‘Scuba Fundamental’, highlights many of the concerns, issues and questions that often deter the would-be novice from taking that initial plunge and advancing their interest in the activity.
Broad ranging in its scope and coverage: from what to look for in a potential diving instructor through to what to expect from a beginner’s course, and – having once completed that entry level training programme – ways of developing and refining the basic skills, ‘Scuba Fundamental’, offers useful insights, tips and advice complemented by instructive, “I-learned-about-diving-from-that” anecdotes provided by experienced divers.
In short, ‘Scuba Fundamental: Start Diving the Right Way’, is not only an ideal gift to give to non-diving family members and friends who’ve ever shown an interest in the activity, but – as an enjoyable read in its own right – it’s also a book that will benefit even the most experienced of divers by reminding them that in diving nothing should ever be taken for granted.
Completing the ‘whoa to go’ trilogy that began with, ‘Scuba Confidential: An Insider’s Guide To Becoming A Better Diver’ – a compelling page-turner that’s equally deserving of a place on every thinking-diver’s bookshelf – ‘Scuba Fundamental’ is available through Amazon.
