While I disapprove of what seems to be the SC heavy handed tactics, I am not sure we can attribute it to a single quarterly earnings statement. If SC is seeing a decline in scuba revenues it may simply be a sign that the boom they helped create in scuba certifications has passed. Scuba, like tennis, is a marginal sport. These types of sports become popular for a period of time, then many of the avid participants move on to something else and new participants do not replace them.

I assume that most of SC's scuba customers are new students, although I have no way of knowing. However, if I am correct, I doubt these students can tell whether they are getting a watered down product. What would they have to compare it to?
