Introduction to diving (first lesson)
(to all those people a little bit scared by the water)

Before thinking about this one, let's just start from the beginning :

To stop using the same old excuses like: “I’m afraid of water”, “The water is too cold!” and “I can’t stand having water behind my ears!”, here’s a short course to help you overcoming your water phobias and to learn enjoying this environment. So you could say to everybody “It’s great! I don’t really want to get out!”


*Observation of the sea bottom by the utilization of a diving mask

 Example of sea-beds with the splendid caraux one

Get into the water and stop when it reaches your waist (generally water depth increases slowly and progressively, but anyway be careful..). Then dampen the interior glass of the mask and wear it. Breathe slightly by the nose to chek that the mask is watertight.The air doesn't have to enter inside and the mask has to stick to the face. If everything is ok and you feel ready to start, you can keep your breath, lean forward and plunge the mask in the water. Just the mask. If you're lucky (and in Polynesia it's not too hard!) or if you're next to a coral reef, you could see some fishes (they aren' wild and if you'll bring them some bread they'll come to eat in your hand). Uhu, yes...and don't forget to start breathing again! If you're not completely frightened do it again. And you'll see than the more fun you'll have in the water the more time you would like to leave the head inside of it; that's the moment you'll realize the importance of the snorkel. It allows you to "breathe under the water" and so to see lots of fishes more.

As you’ve seen you haven’t the head under the water yet, so don’t complain….!
