TekCamp 2018: Day 4 Review


Day 4! Summed up in one word, ‘epic’

Everyone is tired and the weather declined somewhat, but that didn’t mean the instructors and support divers weren’t gonna give it one more big push!

Day 4 saw some truly epic in water moments, the famous Brown Hawk Down scenario, photogrammetry sessions with a wheelie bin, more complex nav and people going for seconds on CCR try dives, some of which were definitely hooked.

Mark Powell had an interesting little lunch time talk about staying alive and in water hypoxia, always a cheerful subject haha but non the less certainly insightful and valuable.

The new format was a great success and I believe it might be possible for the event to be run annually again but we’ll have to see what the powers that be decide.

I for one can’t wait till the next one.
