nickNick Mobley - Managing Director

Nick went well beyond badge collecting. When he came in to do his Divemaster course with LSD a few years back he ended up buying the company. We still think that is the biggest up-sell in PADI history! He is an Assistant Instructor and spends his time mostly pushing the LSD brand to new heights behind the scenes. Nick used to work in the world of IT & Consulting before seeing the light and living the life of riley.
