And today we heard from our friend Ihab Hanna in Egypt with Nile Divers.

He is OK after all the revolution drama over there. Here is one of his prize certificates.

Thanks Ihab!

Let's thank Divers Direct for being a Spearboard sponsor. They just opened a new store in Miami as their Spearboard banner ad shows. That store's manager is a very good friend named Terry who used to captain the store nearest to my house. I went by the store down the road from me to take fresh photos over this past weekend. These pics below will give you an idea of what Divers Direct brick & mortar stores and their online store has to offer.

Here is a link to the new Miami store:

Thank you Team Divers Direct!

Another recurring Spearboard sponsor is James & Joseph aka SpearDeals.com based in San Diego, California.

Thank you Damien and J&J crew!

Several months ago I had the opportunity to visit their cool store in San Diego when I made a trip to personally see the legendary "Children's Pool" site that has been a pinnacle of controversy about beach access.

Here are a few external pics of the store. Please visit the website at:
