How Not to Pass Your PADI Open Water Test
1 - Tell your instructor you will race him to the surface.
2 - Lie face-down and motionless whilst holding your breath.
3 - Loudly proclaim that safety stops are for "woosies".
4 - Show up with a set of tables based on your own algorithm "that's WAY better".
5 - Spit in your wetsuit and pee in your mask.
6 - Ask your instructor “which fin goes on which foot?”
7 - Tell your instructor there is no way you can lift a cylinder with 2000 pounds of air in it.
8 - When asked for your dive plan, hand over a bundle of travel brochures.
Adrenaline magazine recommends that divers base thermselves in Ao Nang, which has access to all the mid-Andaman dive sites, then go on a Similan Islands liveaboard.
