Default Diving Profile

I was suprisedthatI didn'tget any takerson my post about going diving today, especially with the great weather. Then after thinking about it I realized some people might be hesitant to go with someone they don't know much about.So hereis some info to get to know me better.

Name: Ben

Age: 33

Location: Gulf Breeze

Marital Status: Happily Married with 2 kids

Boats:

2004 21ft Triumph CC w/ 150 4-stroke Yamaha



Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Kayak



Hobbies besides Fishing and hopefully diving: Surfing, Going to the Beach, Playing Guitar, Weightlifting, Moutain Biking, Kayaking, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

If all of this sounds desperate, it might just be. :doh I just got all of my scuba gear around Christmas time and I am desperate to get out and do some diving, as well as try out my new speargun, and spearfishing all together for that matter. I would really like to hook up with some experienced divers/spearfishers since I have not gone diving in a few years. My friend who I was going to start divingwithworks offshore and is not around as much as I want togo :reallycrying so I would really like to meet some other divers around here who I can go with.My schedule is somewhat flexible. I can usually go on Sat or Sun and sometimes during the week. PM me if you are interested and we can exchange phone numbersand then do some diving and spearfishing.

By the way, I have a lot of good fishing spots in the bay and Gulf, andI am sure they would also be great for diving. Here are a few fishing pics:

Bay Grouper



Bay Redfish



Nice King



Bonito on the Fly



Mahi & Hoo

Sorry you're having trouble hooking up with dive buddies.

MBT has students going out every weekend, and any certified diver that wants to go along is welcome. It's usually shore dives, but it can be a great way to meet folks to dive with, and it's a lot of fun too!

I think everyone had already made plans.

I would love to get out with you and do some spearing.

Don't get disappointed. Just keep an eye on the forum. dkdiver goes out regularly as much as the weather permits. If Clay-doh can get off, he'll be on the boat. You'd get a kick out of him. Just look at some of his posts and videos. We usually post as it looks like a break in the weather unless - like this weekend - we had out of town spearfishers and Claydoh and everyone was jonesin to get wet - no matter how cold. Hang in there, we'll find a boat to put you on or put someone on yours!
