Ive already made some posts and now I see this introduction thingy here.
My name is warwick im 43 yrs old.
I did my OW soon followed by AOW at "The Academy" in paeroa back in 96 (not 94 as I mentioned in an earlier post )
Did a few Paeroa club trips straight away,Poor knights, slipper is, astrolabe then moved to Tauranga where I still am today.I was lucky enough to hook up with a few divers at the new work place.I wish id kept logging my dives but id say im into the early 300's.
My wife got her ow ticket soon after we met but gave it up after a while, the bulk of my diving has been hunter gatherer stuff,crays scollops and although I still love doing that I feel like it might be time to expand the horizons, wreck diving has always tickled my fancy,i was born in Honiara Solomon Is and the old man used to tell us stories of salvage diving over there and a place called the iron bottom sound with all the war wrecks,it always fascinated me.
Ive got the Taioma on my back door step and never dived it because its a "no take"zone....
Right that does it,
im leaving the catch bag on the boat and im guna do it!
Thanks Everyone your an inspiration!
Wait should I train for that first mmmmm
