PADI Staff Try Rebreathers

Kevin Gurr of VR Technologies, the designer and developer of the Sentinel mixed gas electronic CCR showed his unit to PADI staff in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, USA. Assisted by highly experience Sentinel diver Rikki Battistini, Kevin gave John Kinsella, Steve Mortell, Kelly Rockwood, James Morgan, and Budd Riker an overview of its components, design philosophy and features, followed by a try-dive in the PADI pool.

Karl Shreeves also attended the session; along with Mark Caney of PADI International Ltd., Karl qualified to use the Sentinel last May at Innerspace in Grand Cayman.

On behalf of the global PADI family, thanks Kevin, Rikki and VR Technologies for investing your time in keeping us on the cutting edge of CCR technology.
