In April, Aqualung’s Gorski hat inventor, Les Gorski, stopped by DIT to lend his expert hand to our students diving his “creation”.
Gorski, “The Man, The Myth, The Legend” , typically stops by DIT a couple of times per year, giving the students at DIT at least one chance to dive Aqualung’s Gorski hat with him.
“I’ve been visiting DIT for many years now, made lots of good friends. Of course it’s a pleasure and a privilege to present and talk about my creation with new guys coming into the industry, and being able to explain to them all the details about my helmet,” Gorski said.
“It is always a pleasure to have Les come and spend time with our students. It’s a pretty big deal getting a chance to listen and interact with the inventor himself. The students get excited, and I see them really enjoy and value his time and experience!” -Mike Wendlandt: DIT’s Hatroom & Life Support Director
When asked what it’s like working with DIT students on-site Gorski said, “Very satisfying and enjoyable! It’s more than just work to me, I really enjoy what I am doing.”
It was a great day for DIT staff, students and Mr. Gorski.
DIT is grateful for the long-standing relationship we have with Les and always looks forward to his future visits!
