Halloween is almost upon us and then Christmas!!! The year has flown past and what an eventful one it has been. I have finally started surfing, (not very well at the moment, but give me time!!), and took a hiatus off of diving. Starting mid November I’ll be back under water again though and to kick off the new season a new IDC. A great way to begin with new instructor candidates and new instructors for the new season. Currently in England having enjoyed a relatively sunny October, the rains have now started and I’m looking ahead to spending a week in Orlando with friends at the dive show DEMA. This year I have the added excitement (and nervousness!) of speaking at the show, so my main focus at the moment is that, (and my halloween costume). Another good way to kick start the new season! Once that’s over, it’s back to Costa Rica and the revamped, new look Oceans Unlimited and Go Pro Costa Rica.  Challenge of the new season, scheduling my diving around the surfing, and we must never forget, the most important part of all. Making sure that Damian gets his allotted walk and scratch time. I think the new season will be busy…….
