Hello freedivers,

this is already a month ago that we could dive in the quarry of Dongelberg for the last time, so it is about time to talk about what happened back then!

We were again a very nice group including Daniel, Christophe, Fliety, Thibs, Coco, Paulo, Lio, David, Aimee, Lotte, Vincent, Elisabeth and…yes, Pieter that arrived just in time :D. Oh sorry, there was also 3 more students of Paulo buth they had some issues getting ready :p. So no picture for you guys ^^.

That means also a bit of a traffic jam on the pontoon but at the end, everybody could safely enter the water in these sunny conditions!

Crowdy pontoon!

We spread the participants among the instructors present, namely Fliety, Paulo and myself. I focused on Thibs who still had a few skills lefts to practice in the frame of his instructor course. As “guinea-pig” students, he could have Elisabeth and his brother Coco :-).

Even with these relative bad visibility conditions, Thibs could perfectly perform every skills left. So he fully deserved this brand-new AIDA instructor status! Congratulation buddy! 200% deserved!

The usual Dongelberg's visility ^^

Afterwards everybody could enjoy a drink and a snack (with “Dongelberse saus” of course)….especially Thibs :D.
