    April Update

    Sorry again for slacking on the posts – but it really doesn’t matter as I haven’t been getting wet lately.

    It is a combination of the crappy conditions recently, and family and business shit.

    I’m sure I still have my loyal four or five followers; and thank you!

    Regardless, the SCUBA tanks that I bought from the garage sale a few years ago I got hydro-ed at Pacific Wilderness and they passed!

    So, I now have SCUBA tanks that I can get filled by anyone, regardless of whether they have the paranoid ban on the high quality Luxfer Aluminum tanks from the early 1980′s that I have dove with for the past 10 years.

    However, I feel guilty for not posting anything for a month – so this is what is up.

    I’m not sure if I will be lobster hunting anymore.

    It seems like a really big waste of money now, since the last few seasons have produced very few lobster for me.

    Not that I’m a shitty hunter, but over all, it would have been cheaper for me to go to the damn seafood store.

    I figured that out a long time ago, but the diving camaraderie kept me coming back.

    OK, if I have enough money next season, I will see you!

    Now, for the fluff of this post…

    I just came across this website from one of my friends – it is basically hookah diving, or SNUBA diving, for those who are not macho enough to actually carry a tank.


    Air Buddy

    It is limited to 40 feet, so I’m not putting this on my wish list.

    Until later!

    Restaurant That You SCUBA Dive To Opens In Belgium

    Sorry for lagging on the posts for the last few months.

    The weather has been pretty stormy and the conditions have sort of sucked, so I have been out of the water.

    I have other things going on, which I will make public at a later date, which has kept me from cage fight training; yes, I am getting fat.

    I may need to diet so I can fit back into my wet-suit.

    Anyway, I know six people heavily rely on this site to keep them informed on the latest SCUBA diving news, so on with the main story…

    A Belgium entrepreneur has come up with the gimmick of all restaurant gimmicks – a restaurant that you SCUBA dive to.

    It’s only 16 feet deep, so a macho person like me could just free dive to it, and it’s in the middle of a swimming pool, so there’s not much to see, but … why?

    From the article:

    Lowering themselves to the floor of the pool, an especially deep one built to train scuba divers, they swim to one end where their restaurant awaits, five meters (16 feet) below the surface.

    “The Pearl” is a two-meter wide white sphere tethered close to the pool’s floor. The diners jettison their weighted belts before swimming underneath and up into the pod that looks like a cross between a lunar landing craft and a giant spaceman’s helmet.

    Food is served by expert scuba divers who deliver foie gras, lobster salad and champagne in waterproof cases before leaving the diners peering out of the portholes, enjoying the strange tranquility of eating in an air pocket, completely submerged.

    The entire article, with additional photos, can be found here:

    I hope they take wet money!
