    Just thought I'd say a quick hello to all...just joined SB today. I'm new to diving...My wife and myself did our 'Padi Open water' in Fiji about a week ago and I can't believe I haven't done it till now! I'm back in NZ and saving for my dive gear and will be back in the water soon.... I have never felt so at home in the ocean until I did my first dive even though I've been a surfer for the last 20 years! I am originally from South Africa but now reside in New Zealand. Looking forward to meeting and learning more from all the peeps over hear! cheers all :cheers:

    Hey guys. I'm heading to New Zealand for the World Cup from the US, and was wondering if you had any recommendations for dive spots. I'm all set to go to Poor Knights and the Bay of Islands, but definitely want to do more diving. Can't wait to catch some rugby! Go Eagles!! (I'll be happy if they can just beat Russia with the pool they're in!)

    Hey welcome aboard! I'm a fellow noob here too but been diving for 3 years. I'm sure you're having a pretty good time with your wife while diving, my wife is not so into water activities so kinda bad for me. Cheers!
