Off Season Diving

As a professional skier based out of Utah I am lucky enough to ski  almost 8 months out of the year.  By the time spring is passed and the  snow is gone I can't wait to get out on the bike and spend time in the  summertime mountains.  I usually try to take a few trips to Lake
Powell with family and friends as well.  Thanks to a good friend and avid technical cave diver I recently took up the sport of Freediving and spear fishing.  Freediving is just that, diving in water on one breath of air.  After the first class I was instantly hooked as we
learned to hold our breath for 3 min. and dive to a depth of 66 feet.  The toughest part about freediving is learning to relax to slow your heart rate and control your fear as you descend into the depths.  I am still very much a novice but enjoy the new challenge of trying to
relax in a stressful situation.

Here fishy fishies...

Going deep. 
My wife was nice enough to fry up the catch for some fish tacos.
As fresh as they get.
