THIS!!! :)

my buddy George Stoyle just came back from Sardinia where he attended Umberto's course. he borrowed my C4s and got them signed by the man himself! he also got me a signed poster! needless to say Umberto is one of my freediving idols and sadly it's unlikely i'll ever meet him so i was very chuffed to get these!

the poster will soon be framed and is going on the wall!! (i'll have to put some sort of clear sticky plastic over his signature on the fins because it seems to scratch off very easily.)

i'm seriously considering doing exactly that....

... sorry, i have to go to admire my fins and poster. it's been over 10mins since i last looked at them. :)
Good stuff. He is a man to be admired, certainly.

Fu#@ing lucky, Umberto is also my idol and one day im sure I too will get those signatures totally awsome :cool:

80, 131, 150.... his world records.
constant, variable, nolimits....
The111 - are you sure it's negative? If it is white that means that it is Neutral and is usually because the giver doesn't have much karma themselves.
it was just a harmless question?? strange. will give you some + to balance it out :)
And a bit from me :)
Why negative for that? Some sad individuals here if you ask me, or am I asking for it now? :)
That is awesome!

How did your buddy like the course?
