FREEDIVING – AN INTRODUCTION

DSCN0221Having spent most of my time as a scuba diver; freediving eluded my curiosity for some time. It was not until I was introduced to it in greater depth and completed a freedive course that I fully grasped the connotation of the word FREE; Independent of heavy gear, unrestrained to all thinking and the freedom to delve into your own subconscious. Meditation in its’ Continue reading

WELCOME BACK

DCIM101GOPROGOPR1662.JPGI have been aching to get back to my keyboard for a while now. I’d like to say that I have been on a bit of a digital break but that wouldn’t be accurate. I knew writing was something I had always wanted to do and Oceanslug did become my platform; the longer I shelved my posts, the more challenging it would become to start again. Without getting into too much detail Continue reading

KHMER AT SEA

IMG_45641Have you ever been to such a place that completely alters your perception of life in the best way possible? Cambodia, to say the least, captured a very big part of me from the beginning of my trip. I’ll be honest; I had second thoughts about coming here. The gigantic gap between rural communities and their absolute unbiased and friendly, natural attitude very quickly changed my mind and Continue reading

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Hello 2017! With heaps going on, I can’t even begin to think of where to start about what has been happening. However  – here I am; back to where I had my first ever experience underwater that has led me to the beginning of my diving career. When I first started diving I opted a new identity;

GERALDTON

IMG_6181Moving from Melbourne to Geraldton only a few months ago was a new and challenging experience for me. Arriving from the big city where I spent the past half year was a massive change. Geraldton is a very small town around 400 clicks north of Perth, most people have probably never even heard of it, which is a pity. Peaceful, scarily quiet at times, tidy in a straightforward way and beautifully directly on the Continue reading

SHARK SHIELDS

IMG_6000Reading more and more about shark attacks that have recently been transpiring and having worked in a small town where they are very particular about seeing sharks, I read up a little bit more about shark shields and why I have come to believe they are not such a bad idea. Shark shields are a simple technology that uses electrical wave forms to repel sharks. Before moving to Geraldton, I have never even heard of a shark shield, obviously because I had no reason to fear sharks Continue reading

LIFESTYLE

IMG_513511I live a dream. What I do as a Scuba Diving Instructor is more than just a job to me, it is my lifestyle. My life is teaching others how to become a diver, showing them that they can breathe underwater and introducing them to a whole new world. Diving has whole-heartedly transformed my life. The instant your head is submerged, you’ve infiltrated a unique environment filled with unimaginable wildlife. In that moment, I chose to pursue Continue reading

NIGHT DIVING

20150722_171812I’ve never liked night diving. It wasn’t even that I was afraid of it, I just chose to completely ignore any comments or remarks anyone had about night diving. I had made up my mind about it and it was never for me. However, recently I went out for a night dive and to my surprise; it was not all as bad as I had imagined it would be. As an Instructor, Continue reading
