hi there,

looking for diving at least once a week some where in open water ( so not swimmingpool).
seems we can do that on CHEPSTOW we need to be 3 freedivers minimum and one with safety degree at least ( donna you in?), otherwise i don't mind to follow some spearfishers around south coast .

SLED will be soon ready for chepstow, i don't know yet how i will rent it but it will be ready soon :) . ( sam , i will need a rope 10mm, at least 110 meters, keep me posted).
Give me a call if you want to go out spearfishing or freediving around Portland, Donna is having too much fun in warmer waters!

I am a AIDA trainer* if that helps with safety??

Like the sound of the sled.

Have fun and hope to hear from you soon

portland sound good to me, when is your next dive?
aida * sound ok to me , but should ask sam for that..

keep me posted.
Franc...long time no see!!!

Sled sounds fab and when I'm visiting the UK, I'll be in touch!!! Off to live in Cyprus at the end of the year - you'll have to come and see us out there. We can freedive on the Zenobia - 18m to the top rail, 42m to the sea bed!

Dive safe, have fun and see you soon!!

i can't believe you gone move overthere...
you are a lucky one!!!
hope i will see you before you go...

all best for you.. xxx
I had a feeling it was you! Hope all is well. We met breifly in the pool at Bristol when I was doing **

I am in the water at least 3 times a week so just give me a call.

Hy Donna!

G'day mate - I'll be in Bristol in 5 weeks - moving over from Australia. I'd like to join you any diving you have on - will be looking for dive buddies - have contacted Sam and am going to catch up with her too.

Thanks Mate,

Hi Fellas, I'll be in Exeter and diving at the local waters during weekends... more frequently towards the summer.. I do mostly spearfishing though.. but if anyone wants to come along I'll take you to my favourite spots for some Bass.

SaltFree dive once a month at Chepstow

anyone with AIDA ** Freediver or equivalent training, more than welcome, and if you don't have it, we can teach you

I have a nice little cyllinder ( 1L )for your slead if you need it, its from a emergency escape kit and is rated at 200bar. 197ATS/204Kgs/cm2/2900psi
