S DRILL LONG HOSE
 
01:48
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "S-Drill Long Hose". An S-Drill is essentially a safety drill. It is important that you check that your equipment is bubble free and functioning properly. Ideally an S-Drill is performed at around 5 metres/ 15 feet. Because you are at depth and have attained neutral buoyancy, you are assured that your BCD is functioning. A bubble check ensures your kit is not leaking gas unnecessarily. Breathing from both regulators ensures they are both working. Checking your gauge ensures you have enough gas for the intended dive. This video shows an S-Drill in the RAID recommended configuration, the "techreational", long hose (2 metre/7 foot) configuration. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

HOVER
 
02:11
In his video you will see a demonstration of the "Hover". Neutral buoyancy is singularly the most important skill you can learn as a diver. Apparently, it is also the hardest. At RAID, we do not believe this, and by following a few simple steps, you will achieve neutral buoyancy with ease while also maintaining trim. Hovering while standing up or sitting (Buddha position) is unrealistic when applying the skill to actual diving. Good buoyancy will save you energy, streamline you, protect the environment and also protect your equipment. It is singularly the most enjoyable diving skill once mastered as it will allow you complete interaction to the underwater world. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

RAID Reel and Guideline Use
 
12:32
The basic use of a reel and guideline is an essential safety tool for all kinds of diving involving overhead environments. This video discusses and demonstrates some of the more common wraps and tie offs used when securing guideline inside ship wrecks and caves. Whilst more commonly used by technical divers, these skills are also usefull for all recreational divers to learn. With a bit of practice they become easy to apply.

SMB DEPLOYMENT
 
02:52
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "SMB Deployment". Safely deploying an SMB is a vital scuba skill. An SMB is used to signal your position to the surface. It is absolutely mandatory when diving from a boat so that the surface support can track your position while you are underwater. Deploying an SMB is one of the most difficult skills to master while in trim and maintaining neutral buoyancy. However, with a little practice, the skill will become second nature. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

CONTROLLED EMERGENCY SWIMMING ASCENT (CESA)
 
01:20
In his video, you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "CESA". In the highly unlikely event you run out of gas and you are too far away from your buddy to swim to them, a controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent (CESA) could get you to the surface. It is a last-ditch attempt and you should never need to attempt this kind of ascent. Simply monitoring your gauges and staying close to your buddy/teammate will allow many much safer options should you encounter an emergency underwater. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID, we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

S DRILL SHORT HOSE
 
01:52
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "S-Drill Short Hose". An S-Drill is essentially a safety drill. It is important that you check that your equipment is bubble free and functioning properly. Ideally an S-Drill is performed at around 5 metres/ 15 feet. Because you are at depth and have attained neutral buoyancy, you are assured that your BCD is functioning. A bubble check ensures your kit is not leaking gas unnecessarily. Breathing from both regulators ensures they are both working. Checking your gauge ensures you have enough gas for the intended dive. This video shows an S-Drill in traditional recreational configuration. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

MASK REMOVE AND REPLACE
 
01:29
Should you need to adjust the mask strap or, remove or replace a hood, you will need to master removing the mask, replacing it and clearing it of water. In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Mask Remove, Replace and Clear". As with all videos in the Open Water 20 series, it is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

5 POINT ASCENT
 
01:45
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Controlled Ascent". Ascending safely is of vital importance and following proper procedures increases safety. The ascent phase is one of the most dangerous due to gas expansion and decompression issues. As with all videos in the Open Water 20 series, it is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

5 POINT DESCENT
 
01:04
As funny as it seems, you have to descend to actually go diving, therefore, a safe descent is of vital importance to your safety and comfort. Following proper procedures means you are prepared for the dive before you leave the surface and remain in control during the descent. In his video you will see a demonstration of "Controlled Descent". As with all videos in the Open Water 20 series, it is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers.

REGULATOR RECOVERY SWEEP METHOD - SHORT HOSE
 
01:40
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Regulator Recovery Sweep method using a Short Hose". If you were to drop your primary regulator underwater, either due to it being accidentally knocked out of your mouth or snagged, you can easily and safely recover the regulator and resume breathing from it. This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

REGULATOR CLEARING - BLAST METHOD
 
01:00
Should you need to remove the regulator from your mouth, or should it become dislodged, you will need to be able to replace and clear it underwater. By blasting the remaining breath in your lungs through the regulator, you will remove all the water from the second stage. In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Regulator Clearing - Blast Method". This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

Raid tech skill circuit
 
17:02
This video was shot with a Go Pro on a tripod in 1.5 metres of water. It is not a 'perfect' skill circuit, it has not been edited and has not been enhanced. This is a no nonsense, no fluff, real diver skill circuit. The idea behind this video is to show RAID divers, Instructors and Trainers the basics for a RAID technical skill circuit. If you can do your skills like this, with the small amount of movement that you see on the video, then you are on the right path.

GAS SHARE - ALTERNATE AIR SOURCE STATIC LONG HOSE
 
01:50
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of " Gas Share Alternate Air Source Static Long Hose". In the unlikely event that you run out of gas due to a catastrophic gas loss or gas system failure, you can share gas with your buddy and make a safe ascent together to the surface. Using a long hose equipment setup allows for an easier and safer response to someone out of air. It also allows more control during the ascent.

FREE FLOW REGULATOR BREATHING
 
01:08
In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Free Flow Regulator Breathing". Regulators are designed to free flow if they fail. This means they will provide gas rather than shut down. If a regulator free flows, there is a relatively simple method to breathe the flowing gas without breathing in water. If you suffer a free flow regulator, make contact with your buddy, secure their alternate air source and ascend immediately. As with all videos in the Open Water 20 series, it is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers. At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It's all about proper training.

PARTIAL MASK FLOOD
 
00:55
Should your mask fog up underwater, there is little point ascending to the surface to remedy the problem. Simply partially flooding the mask will allow you to clear the fogged mask easily. The advantage of a partial flood is that you do not lose vision as with a fully flooded mask. In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of "Partial Mask Flood and Clear". As with all videos in the Open Water 20 series, it is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers.

DiveRAID Great White Dive
 
04:14
Fear is the emotion that separates the ordinary from the extraordinary. Fear of change, fear of challenge, fear of the unknown. As Helen Keller says "the fearful are caught as often as the bold".  Prey or predator the line between the two often comes down to fear. While out diving off the Natal coast in South Africa, the Dive RAID team came upon a whale carcass that was being eaten by sharks. Sharks as you are probably aware, are one of primary cleaners in our oceans especially when it comes to large animals that may have died of old age. On entering the water our team encountered a Great White shark that allowed them to spend more than 30 minutes in it's company. Barry Coleman, Director of Dive RAID International and Brett Louw, Director of RAID Southern Africa were among the lucky divers who were thrilled and honoured to have been allowed this wonderful, exciting and yet peaceful encounter with a fish that claims the title as the most dangerous animal in the ocean. If ever you were to watch a video that destroys that undeserved title, this is it. Some may say it's madness and honestly, we wondered whether we should post this footage for fear of what some may say or think. But it is pure magic, from both shark and the divers. We do not recommend this kind of diving for everyone but at the same time can only look in wonder at those who are unafRAID, those who have the experience and ability to interact with the most feared animal in the ocean the way most of us would interact with a household pet. Simply doing something you are afraid of without the experience, without the right training and right equipment is foolhardy. However, living in a cocoon and never experiencing life is a far greater risk. At RAID we are dedicated to bringing the adventure of diving to the world. And with divers like Barry and Brett, you know you are in safe hands. Enjoy, the divers certainly did. They are unafRAID.
