I look at it as “tools in my tool box“.
I need to possess the right tools to allow me to achieve my diving objectives.
These tools include the training, knowledge, equipment and mindset necessary to safely mitigate the increasing hazards that apply as time/distance to the surface increases.
Technical diving simply provides me with more tools to attain deeper depths for longer durations and/or to operate safely inside confined overhead environments.
My personal diving objectives are to reach and explore submerged wrecks. Being able to venture deeper, and stay for prolonged durations, allows me to conduct a wider range of exploration.
