Surfing and Scuba Links

Surfing puts you in touch with the spirit of the sea and scuba immerses you in it. I want to learn how to longboard someday. I've been scuba diving since 1972, thanks to Norine Rouse, an incredible woman with a passion for protecting the sea. I worked as a guide in her Scuba shop for two summers when I was in high school. My most memorable dive with her was a night dive on a wreck in 90 feet of water. We turned off our lamps and could see the full moon above us. Next time the squid are running at night, I hope someone will call me.
