GUE would come up with, stay the course and resist the temptation to teach the un-teachable..

GUE would continue to discuss the benefits of a team approach, and not hide, but disclose, the dangers of solo and would not bend to the will of a poll..

We have had many discussions about this issue and JJ simply will not teach a solo diving class..

As for the other agencies, TDI is a blatant joke and it's sad that SSI is jumping on a shipwreck. No one takes TDI serioulsy particularly when you have the head of the agency smoking pot at the seminars, writing articles for Rodales that says it's OK to have a few beers before a dive, dives air to 400' and brags about how many times he has *balcked out* and floated to the surface..

This agency has NO credibility whatsoever and should not taken seriously let alone copied...

PADI and NAUI ( non -profit) seem to be in competition for market share and seem to be willing to compromise safety in favor of gains in market share and that's a shame..

Sooner or later ( hopefully sooner) diver's eyes will open and the pendulum will swing back in favor of safety over market share..
