The diving club first try with Nino Batagelj, a tetraplegic person from Slovenia, May 29th 2014 on the Croatian coast. After a pre-meeting, which was mainly based on explanations about the “ddi first try dive programm” that sunny day was perfectly made for putting the theory into practice.
Nino was before his accident, which caused his adverse effect, very active in different kind of sports, but never tried diving before, so he was quite excited. Nino was very interested in the procedure how to prepare theequipement and passed all the required skills without any problems in confined water. Although Nino’s mobility of fingers is limited, he never lost his patience, enthusiasm or motivation.
No Barrier Tour in Bali
Once in your life you will get an amazing experience.
This happened to me the 9th of September 2014. A friend of mine and CEO of DDI (Disabled Divers International) organized a DDI No Barrier Tour in Bali at Crystal Divers. He asked me to help to give disabled Indonesian persons a chance to feel how it feels to dive, to breath underwater.
