Today was the final day of North America’s first GUE Fundamentals course, in French.. or… En Français!

I decided to join in on the last day, and take some photos. They had planned on two dives, which gave me plenty of time to play with the camera. Descent drill, fin kicks, s-drills, valve drills, blowing a bag, an ascent drill, followed by doing the rescue techniques. Then… “The Final Dive!”

Skillz…

After the ascent…

The first of the two dives went well, as did the Rescue portion of the dive. Steve was demonstrating, with Eric V.  as his “victim!”

Bottom Time: 38 mins.
Max. Depth: 30′
Water Temp.: 51FVis.: 30′

Then it was time for the FINAL DIVE! The guys worked really hard, and went through all of their skillz ‘n’ drillz for the final dive, before the exam.

Bottom Time: 34 mins.
Max. Depth: 28′
Water Temp.: 51FVis.: 30′

Group shot!

Félicitations, Christian et Stéphane!!!

Diving is serious business, you know. It’s not.. Mickey Mouse! 😛
