What a treat to read quality writing on something you’re passionate about; scuba diving!
Simon Pridmore’s passion resonates throughout these pages too. I believe his knowledge and hard-hitting non-didactic suggestions and hints on how to mentally and physically prepare, practice, and execute has saved several lives that the world will never know. Thanks to the author’s incisive practical commentary and instruction. As a teenage knucklehead in Florida, routinely dove without pressure gauges, caves without lights much less reel lines etc,. I’m57 now and until four months ago, hadn’t dove in 30 years. Since September, I’ve made about 45 spearfishing dives in the Gulf and getting back in the saddle with my rebuilt 30’ Mako! Thank you Mr. Pridmore for your aid in protecting me from myself; no easy feat. If you’re thinking about getting back into scuba much less spearfishing, do yourself a favor and inhale his teachings chronicled in both of his books!
