The art of dive planning series – Air Management – Saturday, March 11
Do you know your Surface Air Consumption or Breath Per Minute rate? How about your buddy’s or the divers in your care? Why are SAC and BPM rates so important? Too many divers blindly follow a divemaster’s or buddy’s plan. Why are divers of all levels running out of air everyday? How can this so easily be prevented? Learn how the same procedures used to lower SAC rates are also the ones to make you a safer and better diver. This presentation will teach you how to breathe more safely and efficiently underwater and how to plan your air to make sure you always come back with plenty. Brief Abstract of 50 words:
