Hey dive buddies! It’s been too long since I created any new content for this site and for the Under Pressure Divecast as well. That’s changing!
I’m excited to be back to blogging about the sports of SCUBA diving and snorkeling and can’t wait to start producing more episodes of the divecast as well.
The Under Pressure Dive Blog
As it has always been, the focus is here on beginner to intermediate divers so expect articles related to improving your skills, enjoying the underwater environment and getting the most out of your time in the water. Like many divers I’m a gear junkie so, yes, we’ll talk about gear but I’m going to come at it from a practical perspective.
I am planning to post weekly content beginning in August 2021.
I’m going to be honest… the dive blog web site is a hot mess. There are tons of plugins that I’m not sure are being used and I think I’ve got like 15 social media links which I don’t use or check.
Over the next few weeks expect the site to look narced. Feel free to contact me if something doesn’t work and bear with me while I simplify it so it’s easy to navigate and loads fast.
The Under Pressure Divecast
Media production has changed in the last 5 years since I produced the last episode of the Under Pressure Divecast. The format of the divecast will remain the same as it was before. We’ll have a main discussion topic (maybe we’ll add some guests who knows), we’ll talk about a piece of dive gear and include a few quick tips that make your diving easier, safer or more fun.
The difference will be that I will be livestreaming the show on Youtube and creating the audio podcast from the recording of the show.
I have rehosted the four episodes of the Under Pressure Divecast back on iTunes with a new host. The raw feed is here: https://feeds.transistor.fm/under-pressure-divecast-recreational-scuba-diving-education-information-tips-and-gear-talk
Aside from the occasional plugin maintenance it’s not likely that I will be doing any further updates here nor is there any plan to produce new episodes of the podcasts… but who knows what the future holds!
You’ll notice that both the Under Pressure Dive Blog and the associated podcast “Under Pressure Divecast” have been dormant for quite a while. I’d love to tell you that I’ve been working on a super secret, awesome diving project that was about to be unveiled. Spoiler alert: I haven’t :(.
I have enjoyed writing the blog and prepping, recording and producing the four episodes of the divecast that I released. I’ve chosen to step away from SCUBA instruction and I am not diving enough to keep the blog up to date and interesting.
My first passion is the business of business and I’m focusing my energy there.
I’m pulling the Divecast from the various podcast feeds; however, I will make all four episodes available from Google Docs unless the download traffic becomes a problem in which case I’ll figure out something else.
It is a well known fact that Thailand is a great tourist attraction. Apart from great climate and welcoming people, one of the main reasons for that are perfectly clear water and incredibly rich marine life which attract visitors from all over the world, great majority of whom are returning once that unanimously agree that Thailand is a divers paradise. Here is what makes it such.
