Phil Short

Phil Short is known in the diving world as an excellent and very experienced diver and explorer. One of his greatest passions is the exploration of caves and flooded mines, such as Långban Mine for example, where he is working on a remarkable project with a great team of people. He is also a top instructor who trains at all levels. From open circuits to rebreathers, from novice divers to advanced technical divers to instructors and instructor trainers.

Without doubt, you can’t be surprised that the organisers of Diving Talks 2023 wanted to have Phil as a speaker. Anyone who has ever been to his lecture knows exactly what a fantastic experience it is and how well he handles this type of presentation. In a casual and enjoyable atmosphere, he weaves a story about things that are inaccessible to most divers, topping it all off with a dose of humour.

About author

My love for scuba diving started as a 12-year-old in the Canary Islands, at which time I took my first Open Water Diver course. This love for the blue turned into a huge passion that accompanies me to this day. Although blue is hard to come by in the Baltic, no conditions are terrible for me. In this sport, I find peace, patience, courage, focus, and balance. I have recently started to engage in underwater modeling and I am fulfilled with this.
