“In diving, like any other activity, people who excel exist.They are the reason why we travel to another country or continent just to hear them speak. The ones we think about when trying to justify the hours and money we spend in diving. They are our inspiration and our motivation. But just like famous soccer players get badly hurt or miss a penalty, diving superstars are human too. They may seem infallible at times but they are not.

In this collection of short stories we open up the pandora box of diving. Stories of fundamental errors and plain human emotions like fear that were never expected to be part of these great divers storytelling. By doing so, we give faces to these close calls.

We bridge the gap between us, who we accept as normal that we could have done better in any given scenario and them who we thought they were always perfect.

They open up to motivate us to do the same. To stop hiding in fear of judgement and help our wonderful submerged world improve its safety record. Report problems, define the error, adjust attitude, learn and eventually we can all together try to reach the utopia of 100% safe diving, even if just almost”.
