A session not to be missed – a conversation between David Strike and Phil Short! Join them as they discuss dive education, cave diving to the leading of expedition.
Phil Short (UK) Dive Industry Consultant, Training Director for IANTD UK
David Strike (Australia) ADEX Ambassador for Technical Diving, Pioneer
Thursday, November 5 – 6:30 pm Singapore time (GMT +8)
With a background in adventure sports that included dry caving, Phil Short’s fascination with the flooded places within caves was amplified when he attended a talk by Martyn Farr on Cave Diving. Attending an Open Water Diver course run by Steve Axtell – a person who inspired him with the enthusiasm and drive that he has maintained for the past 28-years – Phil Short began diving regularly, first as a Dive Master and then as an Instructor.
Joining the British Cave Diving Group (CDG) Phil Short learned to ‘Cave Underwater’ and to pass through flooded sections to open caves beyond. The two parallel diving paths led Phil Short to Technical Diving under the mentorship of Dave Thompson, Kevin Gurr and Bill Stone and encouraged in him the passion and desire to explore in both open water as well as cave; a drive that led to his involvement in a large expedition to the mountains of Southern Mexico and put him on the path to becoming a Fellow of the Explorers Club and a Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society (FRGS).
