Raised minutes from Jones beach on Long Island- New York. It wasn´t until I moved to the desert of Arizona that I bacame a diver.

Although I tried scuba a couple of times in my early twenties

I really started diving at 44 years of age and was OW certified March of 2007 .

My last dive was logged on May 3rd 2014.

I dive locally at Lake Pleasant year round but prefer trips to tropical locations.

I have dived Lakes Mohave, Canyon, Saguaro and Pleasant in Arizona. Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Penasco, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, San Carlos and Cancun Mexico. The islands of Bora Bora in Tahiti and Aruba, Catalina California and also Fort Lauderdale Florida.

As a diver I believe in continued education.

I´m always continuing my SCUBA education by taking specialties.

Specialties I’ve taken not in the Divebuddy.com list include Project AWARE Diver

Certified VIP Tank Inspector

AUP Open Circuit Technician

I completed my PADI Instructor’s Exam November 20th 2011.

I’m looking forward to passing the passion of diving to others.

Could you help me choose between 2 regulators. It’s my second set. Aqua lung legend lx supreme or atomic b2
RAWalker - 4/25/2014 11:23 PM
I have found Aqua Lung products price to be over inflated compared to the value of other brands. Atomic although still a bit pricy I find a better value and the 2 year service interval saves the cost of service every other year. I consider Oceanic and Aeris regs to be best bang for the buck. New old stock of Delta 4 regs are amongs the best performance reg under any conditions and can be found for an affordable price.
