Making this short if any one studies dive tables and bubble models you will determine the PADI dive table is piss a** poor for repetitive diving and I emphasize repetitive. I mean it is fine for one dive and maybe a second but then falls apart. The point being PADI students learn with this table. True they will probably use computers eventually anyway, yet are never made aware of this. PADI will not discuss this issue, but I have it from reliable sources they are aware of this. If you were a PADI dive student would you want to know of this. The fact is you probably would not care at the time. You would care on a dive vacation having no computer doing repetitive dives and trusting your PADI dive table. On the third or fourth day of diving your bent and can not figure out why. These are the important type of issues that should be brought to light not weather if I loose all my equipment can I swim back to the boat or shore(absolutely ludicrous).
