Just what are the consequences? Do they beat you round the head with a soggy
kipper?
I remember when I first learnt to dive this was drummed into me and I kept
asking 'why?' (being
that type of arrogant little sh*t) and noone could come up with a good reason
that it SHOULDN'T
be done. It was eplained that you can get better profiles by doing the deeper
dive first, but that
doesn't say you CAN'T do it. I have even been on boats where they have
purposefully gone to
40m for the first dive just cos the second dive is planned for 30m, just to be
'legal'; me, I had a
perfectly wonderful dive at 20m on the first! Now where's the logic in that?
