Scott had a spinal cord injury about 9 years ago, wakeboarding in New Zealand. Since than he's wheel chair bound, he's paraplegic from waist down. He did some swimming in the past few years as a form of exercise and when Parafed Auckland forwarded him information about DDI scuba courses offered in Auckland, he contacted myself right away. We set up a meeting to discuss the training, locations, scuba gear, medical and draw up a schedule.
After an initial meeting with the student, where we discussed possibilities and limitations for the student to scuba-dive, it was time to take the no barrier tour and a try scuba dive. When the student had gotten his medical approval we hit the pool.
