These photos are not from uneducated, stupid divers – these are from a PADI Dive Center in Tenerife. Not only are these disturbing pictures floating around on the Internet, the dive center in question actually use these pictures to promote their diving center!! To say that I am shocked would be an understatement.
How are divers going to learn the correct way of doing things if this is the example being set by the instructor! – Easydivers Tenerife, you should be ashamed of yourselves and should not be in the business of diving! (my opinion only, please feel free to form your own opinion).
