you guys should look into this. It's probably your best opportunity to shoot some big pelagics while you're here!

Re: Aussies Looking for Cali Spearo Buddies in September

Was lucky enough to get to spend the day paddling and diving with Ben, Ale and Matt aka DamaniJ yesterday!

Super nice guys, ton of fun, good divers, and fun day all around.

We all got solid stringers of various Rockies and nice eater size Lings between 27-30 inches or so.

Nothing real big or sexy, but yummy none the less!

Conditions were real nice, viz in most spots was 15-20 and we dove some great structure and got to play in some giant schools of blues.

It was great to meet you guys and I hope the rest of your trip goes well!!

If you get a chance to take these guys out diving I highly recommend it.



Ps. Shoot me a PM guys and we'll see if we can't get you some hookups in New Orleans.

Re: Aussies Looking for Cali Spearo Buddies in September

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd post a quick update while we have some spare time and solid internet.

Massive thanks to all the guys who have helped us out far!!! You have helped with information on dive spots and gear, put us in contact with other spearos, lent and gifted needed equipment, taken us out and shown us your own favourite spots and even housed and fed us.

You have all really made this part of our trip unbeatable!

We made our start up in norcal. Had a few cool dives at the pacifica wreck and out in santa cruz, then headed south to Monterey where we went out on yaks around pebble beach and had a shore dive further north. Had a squeeze with the cold water which really sucks, so we were land locked for all of big sur and santa barbara (the ear is holding up for now). There are a heap of spots that we will have to check out next time.

Finally made it to the LA area where we went out for our first night dive at the santa monica breakwall (you can't get bugs at night back home). An absolutely disorientating experience at first, especially without contacts, a leaky mask, bloody ear and sculpin taking out dive mates. Tag teamed a heap of crays in the day and have since gone out to catalina and another breakwall. Each dive has been really different and all insanely fun.

With all the new fish we've shot our first lings, cabazon, rock fish of various colours, sheepheads, sand bass and a few more who's names I've forgotten.

While on the road we're eating fresh fish and lobster for lunch and dinner everyday, cooked suspiciously on our camp burner in dark parking lots (Live like hobos eat like kings).

Still have until the 20th of oct to dive anywhere from malibu to san diego, so looking forward to a bunch more dives (unless we head to Mexico!!). Then we are off to Texas, Louisiana and North Carolina for some more fish slaying.

I'll put some photos up when I can get a few cool stills from the video we have. I've been really bad with using the gopro (especially after losing our wrist strap), so sorry if there are limited or shitty ones.

Thanks again and you all better make it to Western Australia!!

Ben and Ale
