Default New To Pensacola

Hey Pensacola divers, my name is Brian Pucella and I just moved to the area. I really enjoy freediving & spearfishing and am looking forward to meeting and diving with people who share my passion in the area. I've been working and teaching with an elite freediving team (Team Vertical Blue, www.verticalblue.net) run by William Trubridge in the Bahamas for the past 3 years. I'm just doing a quick shout out to the community to introduce myself and to let those who might be interested in improving their freediving bottom time, and how to be safe while freediving using the proper techniques, that I will soon be offering courses here in Pensacola.
Thanks & looking forward to diving with ya'll soon!

Welcome to the madness (this forum) :-)

Welcome to the area. Good luck with the freediving training. Several people on here have expressed an interest.

I never wanted to freedive but, this definitely sparks the curiosity.

Glad to hear there's some interest. We're just getting settled into the area, but I'm thinking of giving a basic freediving/safety seminar next weekend. It would be a free (donations welcome) seminar. I'll keep ya'll posted on the date, time and location.

Just a pre warning. Next Friday is the captains meeting. Saturday is the Guns and Hoses spearfishing tourney. I would imagine that will hurt your turn out.

Like SaltAddict said.
The return of God and 6ft seas are the only the only things that would keep 99% of us from doing the tournament. you should enter, you win that thing freediving and you'd be one of the most hated ppl in the panhandle.

Welcome, Brian - awesome that you're a freediver. That's something I have interest in - no experience, mind you, but plenty of interest. Hope it works out, good luck!

OK Guy's, here's the deal for those interested in learning more about proper freediving technique, theory, and safety. I'll be giving a "free" freediving seminar this Wedensday, June 27 6pm-7:30pm at the Scuba Shack (on the dock out back). Check out the info below for more details.
