I started diving as free diver with my father for fishing when I was teenager, In 2006 I started to do Scuba dive with my best friend where he is now an Instructor in PADI. I become a Divemaster last April 2011 I started my training on December 2010 in Sangat Island Resort here in Coron Palawan where the Shipwreck Diving Capital of the Philippines, we use outboard for diving, where Sangat is one of the most prestigious Diving Resort in the Busuanga Area, we always use nitrox because they have a membrane, either deep dive or shallow diving. My training as a Divemaster were being learns first in a hard way because we always guiding inside the shipwrecks, but also depends on the qualification of the guest divers. I speak fluent English and learn some basic German and French. Now I stop my counting how many dives I have, but One thing I learn from my German Instructor "that If you talk the talk you should walk the walk" Its not how many dives you got, or what certification you have, Its how you act underwater or even in the surface as a diver, especially if you are called a professional one.
