PLAY A ROUND AT PROVO GOLF CLUB your physical condition, or the limita-tions you may believe you have, a quali-fied instructor can teach almost anyone to dive. If you’re not certain scuba diving is the activity for you, the DSD course is a great way to dip your toe into the proverbial water of the sport without a huge commitment. The DSD is a PADI approved course, and it can be counted toward your certification, should you choose to continue on to the Open Water Diver course. During a DSD course you spend the first part of the day by the pool learning the-ory and important technical details. You’ll also learn useful signals for things like, “My ear hurts” and, “I’ve run out of air.” (Be assured this is incredibly rare and should never really happen, but still a good signal to learn.) Once you have the signals, you jump in the pool. Normal equipment consists of: a wet-suit, a Buoyancy Control Device (or BCD, which is a vest you inflate and deflate with a couple of buttons. It’s a floatation device on the surface and a buoyancy control device as you’re div-ing), mask, snorkel, fins, a weight belt, an air gauge and compass and the all-important tanks and regulator. The bonus of the DSD course is it includes a beautiful boat ride in para-dise. Once on board, and after roll call, your dive master will sit with you for a review of the material you have learned. At the dive site you’ll be strapped into your gear. A staff diver is always first in the water, followed by the experienced divers. Then, once everyone else is away, your dive master will ‘walk’ into the water to watch you take one giant step into your first open water dive.
