    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    -STI an Asian who too can swim Still doesn't hide the fact that it sounds absolutely like stereotyping (trying not to use the R word) an entire race based on what your 'mentor' believes says. With that being said, i live in Asia and about 30% (which is far from "most") of the Asians i know...

    Solo diver missing - Pulau satang island, Malaysia

    Indeed, its very common here in SEA to take a lax'ed stance on situations like these not to mention it is the month of Ramadhan as well. Sad to hear but oh so true.

    Solo diver missing - Pulau satang island, Malaysia

    Knowing the standards of Malaysian authorities and gov bodies, Im pretty sure this will be swept under the rug considering the public backlash faced by the MMEA. I mean IMHO if the authorities has to come out to justify their own actions and its members blaming the victims family instead, you...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    Hey all, thanks for the comments. I have budgeted that amount for gear purchase so 1500~ is about all i'd want to part with for the time being considering shipping and taxes will also cost a fair sum. servicing of gear is not of my concern as my overall budget has accounted for it. I get some...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    I am still on edge with expensive reels/spools. i am too inexperienced to realise what the difference between a cheap one and an expensive one except for maybe the mechanism and length of the reel :P

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    I did not perceive the aforementioned as zero to hero until I read several posts within this thread. The real funny part is I do not condone this after seeing many doing the OW>Instructor jump but to my dismay, it's basically what I am doing right now which was not evident to me before the post...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    There was some details left out on my original post as I did not expect the severity of the case in hand at the time. It was all explained and the rationale has changed since the first post was made. Just to clarify I have CCR certified with my own unit, my 100 Tec dives was from a tec40 cert...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    I would not have the peanuts to go right up to CCR, doing the full cave is already disconcerting enough let alone the CCR bit. I've heard of plenty reckless rec instructors and some Tec ones but haven't heard of many cave instructors doing so. I always believed that due to the high risk and...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    At first I knew the cave courses were hard and brutal but I failed to realise that the leap between cavern and cave was so drastic that it garnered such a reaction from the community. From all the comments, concern and doubt over here I will be treading extremely lightly, I won't say that I'll...

    Cave gear and light recommendations needed

    I am in absolutely no rush into this neither do I want to rush a cave course. It's similar to driving into a brick wall. I am more than happy to do OC till full cave till it's the right time for CCR cave. It was just an option which I declined right out to do it all at once. I did mention I was...
