TDI INSTRUCTOR TRAINER
Phil joined Manta Dive in 2014 armed with 50 dives, a rescue diver certification and a brand new Suunto D6. He quickly worked his way to instructor and soon after began his journey in tech and switched to a Shearwater Perdix. In 2015 he bought his first CCR and never looked back. Since then he has become full cave CCR certified, done expedition trimix dives to 145m on his SF2 eCCR, dived dual rebreather configurations and become an SF2 instructor trainer. Meanwhile in the open circuit side Phil is an extended range instructor and a TDI instructor trainer for ANDP, DPV and Sidemount. His main passion is exploration of the deep trimix CCR variety and shark videography.
Yannick's passion for diving ignited during his early years, exploring the shallow bays of Spain and later venturing into the lakes and the North Sea in and around the Netherlands. From that point forward, his dive journey has never ended. In 2017, Yannick achieved the status of TDI instructor, after years dedicated to honing his Open Circuit technical diving skills, progressing all the way to Advanced Mixed Gas OC and now SF2 Mixed Gas CCR as well. With extensive experience in twinsets, sidemount, and rebreather setups, he possesses the versatility to handle any diving configuration required for the task. Yannick's credentials include certifications such as TDI Extended Range Instructor, TDI Technical DPV Instructor and TDI Sidemount Instructor.
