I got the okay from my wife for our 13 year old to take scuba lessons. I'm going to take a refresher course at the same time that he's taking OW class. I'm looking forward to diving many years with him.

I totally blame my daughter for this addiction.
Congrats--you both will get a huge benefit.

I'm jealous of you guys! I can't wait until my kids are older and I can take them under water!!

Taking a refresher is a great idea. When my daughter decided at 10yo to get certified, my older son and I went for rescue diver mainly to further develop skills...

How's he doing in the class?

08-30-2011, 13:12
He took his open water dives this past weekend and he's now certified. I'm sure glad I took the the class with him. It was a blast and everything came back to me. Looking forward to many years of diving with him. The only draw back is that I have to buy twice as much gear.

Well, it's probably more than just twice as much gear. He'll probably outgrow at least one set of his stuff. Maybe two! :smiley2:

Congrats to both of you.
