    My instructor for my Navi dive for Advanced when I did it at Uni taught me Big White Rabbits Always F***k (idk if swearing is ok on here....)

    Which worked for us since we were a bunch of uni students, and works for me now in that if I'm helping a student (currently a DM trainee but I'm there to answer questions if needed) then even if it's inappropriate to use that acronym it still helps me remember it so I can just think of other ones to use hehe.

    Good for young person generation though and gets a bit of a giggle unless they've no sense of humour at all.

    This is for the pre-dive safety check :-

    B - B.C.D.
    W - Weights
    R - Releases
    A - Air
    F - Final Okay

    I personally remember it as Begin With Review And Friend.

    Thank you so very much!!!

    I was just (I mean in the next minute or two) going to do a Google search for scuba acronyms. Then I saw your post. I'm going to the website RIGHT NOW to check it out!! This novice needs as much help as she can get. :D

    Hi lynch,

    You are the only poster I've seen that is like me--just starting with "None--Not Certified" as the number of dives. Glad I'm not the only "dry" diver enthusiast out there! But that will all change in January 2013... :blinking:
