    It would have been much better to take a longer class and get more prepared for diving

  2. Where a re you staying at that place is cool it is like the jungle hotel

  3. LimitlessDeadline says

    Just a heads up these two or three day courses are very dangerous. They rush the learning and don’t go over all of the proper skills, and you aren’t in the water enough for your instructor to see your mistakes and correct them.

    I took open water diver with PADI in Norway in 2012 when I was 16. And I love scuba diving so much. This makes me want to be back in  the water even more than before. Have not been scuba diving since this summer in Malta with my brother and dad 🙂 Hopefully I will get a couple of dives soon 🙂

    Hey Ben! Was wondering or you only did your course in one day? Usually it takes 3-4 days unless you did prep work? :p

  20. PlanetAaronTV says

    I've Scuba'd once… And I must say that my brain had a really hard time understanding that I could breathe when under the water… It just was not having it! The only way to describe it was like trying to walk down an escalator that is not on… Brain just loses it's s**t and freaks out.

    Great stuff, keep em coming 😛  I recommend that you change your profile photo, because you look like a brute with no brains(depth). When you really are a kind and considerate human being. Sorry for my bad manners but I think you could have more subscribers if you change it.. Peace and love on earth… ^^ Google Oxytocin and you will find my way too happiness… =D

  38. Ignas Gaucys says

    Hey Ben! Congrats, this is a really nice channel and you do a really good job (my favourites are the visual vibes! :D). Also I'd like to ask you a few questions, maybe you already answered in some vlog that I've missed, in that case, sorry for asking again :/
    Sooo… when you record all of your vlogs (with g7x or s120), do you constantly record at 60 fps or just when you know you're gonna use a 50% slow motion? That's a HUGE amount of data… Also, how many batteries do you usually carry with you? And last: when you export for YouTube, what compression do you use on Premiere? (I'm not good with it, a minute and a half of video at 1080p 30fps got me more than 300mb, probably due to a too high bit rate D:) Keep going! ^-^

  39. Apple Prince says

    You can learn to do nearly everything… except learning Russian, I mean even russian people cant speak it well…

  40. Gerard Marken says
