Add to my list a pair of Aqualung Zip fins.:eek:

Not the hottest trend on the market, but I think they'll be good for shallow-water snorkeling. Besides, they're cute.

...Picasso suit that had my name on it?

Hav'nt been able to make it back up to Redondo, so I may lose that one. I may just go with an Eliossub because of the tailoring.

I'm becoming somewhat of a gear hound. Though truthfully what's happening is that as I transition out of some of my newbie gear I'm experimenting to find what really works for me. Some of my items I may put up for sale soon. For example I ordered and just received a pair of Sporasub H Dessaults thinking as usual (Cressi, Mares) that sz 9 U.S. = sz. 43; but I guess Sporasub sz. 43 is U.S. sz. 10! So now I have these foot pockets that are for foot sz 9-11 and I need to wear at least a 5mm bootie to make them close to fitting. Go figure.

Dive back pack that i found @ wal mart. THE BEST thing that i found for dives that require a walk. i can cary all my gear in it (minus the guns) then fold it up into a little bag then clip it to my floater. i don't have to stash anything on the beach and better yet i can dive straight to my truck. 20 bucks!!!

casio dive watch tells dept, time, not as good as the sunnto D3, lack of funds because i bought the Rabitech!!
um, thats it for now. :friday

I spearfish naked in Puna Hawaii with a graphite hawaiian sling. I replaced my plastic band with one of those nice neoprene bands, Soon will be upgrading to a hawaiiansling.net sling. Also I need to get an icepick. I'm glad to find this place!

Aloha, Sky

The Tarzan was said to have lived around the Victoria Falls. What they did not say was that the water came from his eyes due to the pain from his icepick piercing :D
