"Inexperienced" PADI Divers...

Re: "I dont know much about civilian diving and civilian dive equipment, but I do know I will never dive again with an inexperienced PADI diver."  Chris

All of which may be a very good policy for him, but the problem is not with the dive agency, it is with the potential buddy's inexperience. It is dangerous to dive with some one if they are very inexperienced, but we see inexperience from all agencies, NAUI, SSI, YMCA, all of them. To generalize to "PADI" as "inexperienced" is just over generalizing.

A post-script: Most of those who say they don't want to buddy up with inexperienced divers list their experience or training as very great. There is an old saying that "You should always try to have a buddy more experienced than you."

Fine.  Who was your more experienced buddy?  Who shared their experience with you, to help you get the experience you have today?

It is a shame that those with experience are so reluctant to share their experience with the newbies. Who will, if you won't?
