All those diving articles on the internet which describe the frog kick as 'breast stroke with fins' couldn't have it more wrong. Watch carefully - the power phase is not on the extension of the leg it is on the coming together of the fins. This way a jet of water is sent backwards - away from any silty bottom.

There are few women active at the top of technical diving, but one of the most active is Clare Pooley.
Teaching for both GUE and IANTD, Clare Pooley can be found underwater anywhere from cold water deep wreck dives to the crystal clear Mexican caves, enjoying single tank reef dives through to mixed gas multi stage/scooter cave dives in the colder waters of France or here at home.
Clare teaches OC diving in the DIR style in the UK and in Europe, encouraging streamlined gear and good technique in all students whether they seek intro tech, trimix or cave certification.
Howard Payne is passionate about open circuit technical training and considers himself fortunate to have learned from visionary explorers Phil Short, Jarrod Jablonski and Richard Lundgren.
Now teaching exclusively for IANTD, Howard runs open circuit technical courses to normoxic trimix level both here in the UK and in the warm, clear waters of Malta.
Although he loves UK diving, even he would concede that there's nothing quite like running a mix course on a wreck like the Le Polynesien! Howard is currently involved with a deep wreck exploration project in Malta but he also has a long-standing love for cave diving.
