What does Bwraf mean in diving?
We’ve learned to dive on that PADI Openwater course and throughout it you have learned an acronym for the buddy check. The official PADI one is: Begin With Review And Friend, (BWRAF) which reminds you to check the BCD, Weights, Releases, Air and Final Check.
What is the difference between PADI and SSI?
The biggest difference is the teaching methodology. In PADI, you need to complete a set order to meet their standards and pass the course while SSI allows slightly more flexibility for students to grow in confidence by completing other skills first. Both agencies offer e-learning options as well as a printed manual.
Can you scuba dive with lens implants?
Many ocular plastic surgeons are now using implants made of hydroxyapatite, a porous material which is not a contraindication for diving.
