Thank you for highlighting the problem with the dive industry.

This is similiar to PADI now teaching deep air.. Since diver's want it, sell it to them..

The eductaional model in this business is a joke. If children wanted to learn how to make bombs should schools teach it????

Deep air can NOT be taught to be done safely, it's like teaching how to drive drunk safely.. The proper way to teach someone who wants to exceed recommended recreational limits is to introduce Helium, not sell people the idea of diving air deep. Solo diving is the same principle, rather than cater to a demand and continue to educate against it, they shouldn't cede the point just because they can sell added C-cards.

I expect that from TDI, but for SSI to get involved is stupid..
