Why do you enjoy teaching others to dive?
Discovered that after I did my Scuba Instructor Course that I have actually been a teacher all of my life just like my father, except I have a better classroom. At 14 I was the youngest ever kayak instructor in Scotland and was also later a coach. I have been teaching in the outdoors ever since—paragliding, skiing, rafting etc. So, since I had taught in the skies, on the mountains, and in the rivers it was now time to teach in the ocean. I never did it for work, just as fun on the weekends.
