Case Study – Thomas Rich, 15, Todmorden, West Yorkshire

Sal Painter, from Below the Surface Dive Centre, flagged up another young diver for inclusion in The Next Generation - Thomas Rich

-

Sal Painter, from Below the Surface Dive Centre, flagged up another young diver for inclusion in The Next Generation. She said: “We met Thomas aged 13 after his dad booked him a discover scuba. He was hooked and very proficient from day one, moving straight onto his Junior Open Water Diver course, and dragging his dad along too. He passed with ease, showing great skills. This was becoming a family event, with his brother Jack now joining them.

“In August 2017 they all joined our L’Estartit trip, and with Junior Advanced Open Water now under his belt, this 14 year old had the skills and confidence to lead his family on non-guided dives – something many adults shy away from.”

She concluded: “An impressive diver with his eye on Divemaster, we have no doubts he can achieve that and more.”
