    So one of the things drilled into you during OWD certification is your buddy check. PADI uses an acronym to help you remember, but don’t think i’ve ever met anyone (well apart from an instructor) who remembers the real PADI version.

    BWRAF actually stands for the sequence of checks you make during your buddy check which you should always perform prior to splashing:
    B – BCD
    W – Weights
    R – Releases
    A – Air
    F – Final Check

    PADI teaches the mnemonic Begin With Review And Friend

    Below are some common ones i’ve heard.. if you know any others post below:

    I use Beer, Wine, Rum And Friends..

    Being Wary Reduces All Failures
    Because We Really Aren’t Fish
    Breathing Water Really Ain’t Fun
    Blue Whales Really Are Fat
    Burger With Relish And Fries

    Bring Weed Rizla And Fags (popular in the UK)

    Some popular with kids include:
