Coatesman's Speafishing Blog

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the complements on the DVD teaser, I am also super excited about seeing the finished product.

I also had guys comment on the Tanzania Story, and some guys asked if they could be notified when I blog  ..... so they dont miss out!!!
So what I have done is add a niffty facility to the blog were you will be mailed when ever a new post comes up. That means you will never miss out .... or miss the mail that lets the secret slip out that the fish are on :-)  ...... I promise I never tell!


All you have to do is click this link ...its as simple as that!!

Salty Divers

Hey guys,

This coming Friday is Club Nite!!

As always ..... a 'Dop n' Chop' a dvd or two and I will be going over some foundational breath hold techniques.

I will cover:
Equipment - how & why the right stuff helps!
Foundational breath hold principals
Breath hold technique and application
plus some good ol tips here and there.

Last time we did a breath hold workshop we had great report backs from guys who had improved their diving.
One guy almost doubled his bottom time!!

So pull in and come check things out, and if you are an ol Salty Dog with years of experience why not pull in and come share you thoughts aswell.


On another subject the Salty-Diver.com site has been down. We were hacked last year and the site just never recovered propperly. To the point that the hackers basically deleted the site and redirected the traffic to porn sites and it got riddled with viruses.

Lantz Mattinson from Afro Media has very kindly taken the site on and it giving it a total overhaul.
It looks like the site will be a whole lot more interactive so am keen to see it when it is up.
Hopefully the site will be up for Friday so we can run through the site together.

Anyway thats all, hope to see you at Club Nite

Salty Divers Club Meet

Howdy,

Its that time again ...gee it came upon me and I almost forgot!!! Mich actually reminded me, I suppose thats what happens when you stuck in the work mode.

I have been a bit out of touch with the diving as I have been put on the 'bench' with sinus and now flu. I have been trying to wash out the snot in some quality barrels that have been coming through ....... not sure its helping tho ... feel kinda kuk!!

Anyway dive club meet is all good for Friday and eventho the sea is probably going to be poo .... it will be good weather for a 'Dop en Chop'

Every one is asking about the jackets ... I will hopefully have a strike off of the logo for the meet ...hold thumbs :-)

Anyway looking forward to a great time,

Chreers
