Introducing the 2022 committee…

What led you to scuba diving? (How did it all start?)

Started scuba diving back in 2008 when I did my open water course. Since then I was hooked and wanted to do more of this.

What is your highest level of scuba qualification and how long have you been diving?

Rescue diving. 14 years.

What do you do with your free time when you’re not underwater?

Socialising with friends, braaing.

What keeps you diving? (Macro/micro marine life, diving experience peace and quiet or social aspect?)

When my interest for photography started I wanted to take more and more really good photos. Invested in cameras and just want to go big with it. Like doing macro, wide angle as well.

What are you most excited about related to OMSAC and diving in the coming year?

Becoming a better diver. Want to say professional but lets wait and see.

Share a fond memory related to being a member of OMSAC (on a dive, at an event or club night, etc).

My best dive to date thus far, Aliwal shoal, my first ever whale shark. Precious moment.

If you had to recommend a Cape dive site, which one would it be and why?

Justins is a recommendation, actually, any… cause every dive is different as any diver would tell you.

If you could dive anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Haven’t traveled as a diver as couple of places I would love to go and discover, Bali, Thailand, Philipines etc.

What, in your mind, makes a good dive buddy?

Responsible diver, always aware of surroundings, making sure of both divers’ safety, making your buddy feel comfortable. Don’t take stupid risks.

Be honest 😉 What kind of dive buddy are you?

Im a good buddy, could be better; sometimes I’m the one the people loose, lol. But I’ve become much more aware since I’ve done my rescue. I have progressed.

What is your best tip/trick for new divers?

Stay calm, relax, you’re always in good hands, learn to control your breathing and have fun.
