This morning, shortly before I left Gili Air in Indonesia for Bali, the new PADI Regional Manager Paul ‘Tosh’ Tanner visited the island and first stop was PADI 5* IDC Center ‘Oceans 5’. During their stay PADI Course Director Sander Buis was handed his first ‘Certificate of Recognition for Excellence’ as a PADI Course Director. Well done Sander and welcome Tosh!

It was good meeting the new RM Tosh and as always it was good to meet my long term friend Hans again, we hadn’t seen each other for a while.
The next PADI IDC on Gili Air that I will teach is scheduled to start 22nd February 2014. Sander has scheduled an IDC to start later this month at Oceans 5!
