    Dive History:
    I have enjoyed diving in the Dominican Republic were I got certified. In Newfoundland were the water is incredibly cold, here I was introduced to wreck diving. It was also were I decided I had to get a drysuit. I've also been in the Red Sea around Dahab, the diving was also incredible there. Next is the west coast to dive around Nanaimo, the wrecks there were great. I have lately been certified on a Megadalon rebreather on the west coast. Plan on ice diving one of these winters. For local diving there are a few deep lakes within a few hours drive from here, You just have to stay off the bottom as they are very silty.

    Dive Equipment:
    Traveling I use a Diverite stainless backplate with single tank straps. For home a Deep Sea Supply backplate and wings, along with added side weight plates with a set of doubles. Regs are all Apeks and have sets for singles and doubles. Over the last couple of years I've gotten a compressor (RIX) more regs both first and seconds, 40 cube tank and and lots of small items. My first drysuit was an Apollo, which I still use and have also gotten a DUI front entry. I have to admit it, I'm now addicted. Still looking for a cheap gill transplant. I am now diving a Meg rebreather, wasn't able to find a gill transplant.
