PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY Padi Peak Performance Buoyancy Course

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

Diving and buoyancy is like riding a bike.  Once mastered the motor skills required tick away in your subconcious so that you can enjoy the activity you do fully.  Divers who’ve mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, almost as if by thought. They interact gently with aquatic life and affect their surroundings minimally. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course refines the basic skills you learned as a PADI Open Water Diver and elevates them to the next level.

This is Soooooo Important

Most of your dive skill comes in your buoyancy control.  so many divers will continue diving without mastering this essential skill.  This means that they work harder than most, breathe more air and have to constantly think about thier bouyancy.  Would it not be better to take some time out to get trained properly and practice the skills learned on a few dives so that you too can dive effortlessly without thought too? 

How many more dives are you going to do frustrated with your buoyancy?  Join us on this course.  You will thank yourself forever for it.
