ISSUE 8 ARCHIVE - NON-CELEBRITY DIVER, JON CHAMBERLAIN

WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

Wivenhoe, Essex.

QUALIFICATION

PADI Rescue Diver.

DIVE CLUB

Essex University Sub Aqua Club.
Ocean Visions
Non-Celebrity Diver

TOTAL DIVES

66.

MAX DEPTH

35 metres.

MOST EXPENSIVE PIECE OF KIT

My trusty Canon G7 and housing.

COOLEST THING SEEN U/W

Without doubt, manta rays in the Similan Islands. So much so I wanted to get a tattoo.

NON-CELEB MOMENT

Being mistaken for George Clooney (on many occasions).

WOULD NEVER DIVE

Stoney Cove in winter again.

BBS (BEST BACON SARNIE)

Glastonbury 2003 It definitely wasn't the best, but I enjoyed it the most.

BEST BUDDY

Sally who's been on almost every dive with me and still thinks I might be dead when I'm lying motionless on the sea floor waiting for a fish to come out to play.

WORST BUDDY

A DM in Thailand who had the worst buoyancy control I've ever seen and spent the whole dive looking for the disposable camera he lost on the way down.

LIFE CHANGING BIZARRE DIVE MOMENT

Getting trapped in a washing machine current, pinned upside down to a reef wall in the Galapagos. Instead of panic, I felt really calm, even as the current swept my regs out behind me and I had to grab my buddy's spare as she floated past. It's always good to learn to dive conservatively early on in your dive career...

FAVOURITE UK DIVE LOCATION

Haven't found one yet.

FAVOURITE OVERSEAS DIVE LOCATION

Similan Islands off the west coast of Thailand.
London School Of Diving

STILL WANNA DIVE...

Without a tank.

AIR OR NITROX?

Air.

TANYA STREETER OR MIRANDA KRESTOVNIKOFF?

Tanya.

MONTY HALLS OR NICK BAKER?

Monty.

ANYTHING ELSE?

I have an unhealthy interest in nudibranchs. But don't hold it against me (or wait for me to catch up with the rest of the dive group).
