Tank,
Generally, I am busy running a signs and graphics company down here in LA. I put in a lot of hours and usually get stuck being the answer man when there are any problems. When we have deadlines I get to see them through. Since I am at work when I stop for a few moments to read up on the happenings of OI, I rarely have the time to contribute. Oh yeah, I'm also re-doing an old craftsman home in my spare time. I also am an avid freediver and underwater hunter.....Oh and I got married two weeks ago and I'm going to Dallas this weekend for a MNF game......and so on and so on and so on....I stay pretty busy.

westonjimmy,

Ahh yes, the perpetual motion of the younger man, how well I remember those days. These days, I get winded just reading about guys like you!!!

Free diving eh? Wow, that is a high risk, demanding hobby that scares the be - jeepers out of me.

One more point, as a man who has 24 years of matrimonial bliss behind him, all I can say is, with a good woman to back you up, and often times lead, you have the world by the ass. Congratulations. :lol:

Freediving here in california is some of the best in the world. I have been a certified scuba diver for 15 years now but got into freediving a few years ago and never looked back. It's a much purer sport and for spearing fish, the only way to get the big ones. I had a run on with about a 8 foot Mako last month but nothing bad came of it.
As far as marriage, I was long over due. We have been together for 7 years and finally got all of our ducks in a row so I pulled the trigger. 24 years form now I hope I can post about having as many years of marrital bliss.

Westonjimmy,
How did you find going from breathing from a regulator and then going into freediving? Personally I have a hard time because with the snorkel in my mouth I want to take a breath. Also do you free dive for abalone??

Basically, we often refer to it as breath-hold diving because as you get better you kick out the snorkel after you "breath-up" on the surface. Not having the snorkel in your mouth gets rid of the reaction to want to breath in and won't trap air that can release at depth and scare wildlife away. It's amazing how long you can stay underwater with enough practice. Yes, e go for Abalone freediving. In fact the regs require that you can only catch them freediving (along with a list of other requirements). I ive down in the LA area and even if you could find one here (have seen them at Catlina Island) they are off limits. You have to up north towards san Francisco to find them and to be legal.
