Our Pro Development TEAM

Mick Bosman

PADI Course Director and Elite instructor

Diving and the business of diving is one of the most interesting industries to work in. The dynamics and the vibe that divers bring is unbeatable! 

Sharing teaching techniques and sharing knowledge regarding being in control and finding your own way to teach is 100% fun!

Lorenzo Rijgersberg

PADI Staff instructor and Elite instructor

I started diving when I was 10 or 11 years old. I Did my IDC in the Netherlands, but after a while I decided it was to cold for me there so the choice to move here was very easy. 

I love the island life, and love to teach. My favorite course is still the Open water Course and teaching this to kids. For me there is no better feeling then to help non-divers experience the underwater world for the first time!
