    Thought I would share with all of you that I did a 40 min, dive in the pool yesterday! I was face down for 2 min or so. I was under about 5 feet. I wanted to do an hour but had a few equipment adjustments (buoyancy issues). Have to come up with a better strategy with my weight placement. TV station didn’t film today due to another
    Story the reporter was involved with. Will be doing something with them in the very near future.

    Good News….
    Ocean Reef is lending me all the gear I need, 3 Neptune II NIRA masks,
    4 GSM Communication Devices and 1 M-105 Surface Unit. It should be arriving next week!
    It is really cool that Ocean Reef wants to help with the equipment they are loaning. Will
    Definitely make a big difference in my dives….being able to communicate underwater. It
    Will save me from having to surface and re-surface to communicate. With this setup it will
    Make my time(s) underwater for longer periods.

    Take care everyone and safe diving!

    That's fantastic Matt. 40 minutes is a terrific accomplishment. You'll love the full-face masks and underwater communication set-up. Great pic of yesterday's dive and looking forward to seeing more pics.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Thanks Mike!!! I just love the awesome words and supportl. Yeah it is pretty far out that Ocean Reef is lending me that gear, it should be arriving today, and I can't hardly wait! It should be awesome for my next dive, having the comms... I love using my FFM, they are very awesome. Yeah 40 min is a good dive, but I will be hitting 60 min, I 'll get there. Talk to you later, and have a wonderful holiday season.

    Safe diving,
    Matt
