Beginners in any new pursuit or activity climb quickly upthe confidence curve, whether or not they have the skills or the knowledge of whatever it is they are learning. This has become known globally as the Dunning-Kruger effect and is graphed as a competence to confidence curve. Once you have an understanding of this phenomena, you can mapit against your progress in your new ocean activity, with surprising results.
