Sidemounting.com would like to introduce you to .. Audrey Cudel
“Once underwater, every Diver becomes an Explorer … of oneself.”
Audrey Cudel is a Technical Diving Instructor and renowned Underwater Photographer whose style is famous within the Technical Diving community. She founded a renowned Technical Diving Facility in Gozo (Malta) back in 2012 where she first hosted Steve Martin during his Sidemount Essentials courses.
She has now established her own company ‘Audrey Cudel Technical Diving’ and ‘TechSidemount’ operating worldwide.
After more than 25 years of diving, she has been actively teaching Technical Diving in Egypt, Gozo/Malta, Mexico and Spain. Over the past 10 years teaching up to Full Cave & Decompression Procedure levels, she has decided to specialise herself in Sidemount, Technical Sidemount & Cave Diving Training to share the best out of her passion and experience in these fields.
She also truly believes that diving for herself on her spare time enhances foundations of her own skill level to be shared with her future students.
“The only difference between ‘just another diving instructor’ and THE instructor is not just professionalism, sharing experience and knowledge, but also person “infecting” students with passion to diving, beliefs, supporting and making the student believes in himself no matter what…Audrey was my Instructor”
Beyond her adaptive teaching recognition and her dedication to making each student a better diver, she is a passionate underwater photographer complementing each training and diving session with numerous shots which became famous within the diving industry and through social medias such.
She is very well know in the Technical Diving field for her unique style and her work has been published in various magazines (Wetnotes, Octopus, Plongeur International cover, Times of Malta, …)
Plus Technical Diving agencies and Sidemount Instructors websites, training materials & dive shows (SDI/TDI website, TDI Sidemount Manual, Technical Sidemount, ‘Boot’ show, TDI ‘Mission Tech’, sidemountpros.com …)
“.. Never stop feeling amazed, extend your own limits and practice the routine’.”
