“…I know in England the caves are very small, the water is very cold, and you cannot see anything. Those are very difficult and dangerous conditions.” Olivier Isler.
These are the caves where I learned my craft and I strongly believe if you can handle UK cave diving conditions you will do well anywhere in the world. My equipment needs to keep up with me and a well-fitting, tough and reliable drysuit is an absolute staple on the longer, colder dives.
