    Hi everyone, found the magic of going underwater in 1950 in the salt water locks of Scotland, slowed down a bit now, but still manage to get my face wet now and then.I"ve always found that if you can"t get a dive in, the next best thing is talking about it. This ScubaBoard is a real good idea. I started diving NZ waters in 1966, built my own diving school in 1970 and operated it till 1995.I always thought of myself as one of the lucky few, I turned my hobby into my job. I still hold CMAS 3 star instructor certification. Paraparaumu, just north of Wellington, ( nz capital city) is where I live. Anyone care for a chat?. Really would like to hear from you. Bill.

    Hey there, jollian. I lived in NZ as a kid and had a chance to go back there last summer. I dived the Poor Knights and traveled around a bit. Love to meet you and dive there again some time.

    Enjoy the board.

    Cheers,
    Doug

    Welcome to the board. I just moved back to Auckland in February after two years in wellington. I really miss the easy access to diving that you get in Wellington.
