New member into

Postby SeaG » November 15th, 2020, 4:00 am

New member to the site. Been lurking for a while, and finally got off my a$$ and registered. I used to hang out on the other site, and got my start on the free dive list way back in the day.
Im based out of SD, you might see my Hobie skiff and i bee boping around down there. Looking to read and lean a lot here especially from the legends like Dam, Chris, and Billy Mac.

Glad to be here. :obscene-drinkingcheers:

Bill, I was on the freedivelist and I'm not that old!

Are Ata, Roger, Terry and the elusive Mark Barvill all here? ;)

Wow, a blast from the past! Welcome aboard. We need some representation from Canada.

I guess old is relative. I've seen your photos on Spearboard and you sure look older than when you came down from Montreal with Roger for the Millennium party. Of course that was a long time ago. I'm the only one I know who hasn't aged since then.

I'm afraid none of those guys are here. Ata is still diving since I see him frequently posting photos on Facebook. Mark was still diving around a year ago when John Huberman, the guy who makes Ulusub guns, ran into him swimming out from the beach on the Kona Coast and got tips on shooting wahoo.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading your stories from your Baja trips, diving from a kayak and shooting wahoo with a gun that isn't big enough.

Dude Bill, that's a 150 cm gun! in american that's 72 inches long overall! I know, only three 16mm bands and a tiny 7.5mm shaft but still!

Well don't worry, I build his little brother, four bands, 152 cm and perhaps 10% more mass.

My flight to La Paz is on Dec 8th, so mayhem should follow.

BTW, Ata sent me a video of myself dubbed in Turkish. I'll beg him to join. He still fishes all the time.. or is he practicing for his escape from Erdogan secret police?

I forgot the gun was that long. I guess I was focused on how skinny it was and the skinny shaft.

When I see Ata post I'd like to ask him about politics, but of course that could be dangerous. I'm afraid that Erdogan's people might even read PMs. Anyway, I hope he is on the right side.

Ata is waiting for approval. Hopefully he didn't answer "grenade" to the screening question.
