Thank you up front for information that I've garnered from your site prior to registration.
My name is Ed Blackshaw, this website and the information contained on it is great. I've been scuba diving for about 17 years and have been a part time instructor for the past two years.
I finally started taking pictures and even just bought a strobe which was a big leap (investment) for me. I'm lucky enough to be stationed on Oahu (USMC) so I get to dive every week with my lovely wife. No kids yet so we still have lots of free time. We just spent a week on Maui and I was able to get a few good pictures out of the trip. Once I figure out how to get them posted I'll post them.
Anyway, I look forward to hopefully becoming a productive member.

Hey Ed, you must be my neighbor! I live in Kaneohe. Anyways, I am kinda new to Oahu too, just been here for a year, but I like it a lot so far.

Good to have you here, you should post some of your photos in the gallery section.

I'll try and add a couple pictures tonight after work. I actually live over in Mililani, I'm working on this side of the island up on Wheeler AAF. I love the Kailua/Kaneohe area though, I was stationed over there for 6 years in the early 90's.
I'm just happy to be back in the islands!

Ed,
Welcome to wetpixel. I'll be on Oahu next Tuesday however I'm a little bummed. :) The customer originally planned 2 days of meetings...Wednesday and Thursday. So I planned to stay through Saturday and dive on Friday. I just received an email today that they want to meet on Friday as well.
Meeting times 9AM - 11AM Wednesday (I wonder if I could make the boat in time?) :glare:
Thursday 10AM to Noon - I'm almost certain I miss the afternoon boat on this one. :(
Friday Noon - 2PM - No chance for even a decent snorkel outting. :excl:

I guess I'll settle for sneaking out Wednesday Afternoon and then enjoy the beach the rest of the week. Life is hard :o

ce4jesus,
Shoot me an e-mail : shark6047@hotmail.com
We might be doing a night dive out of Hawaii Kai, cost is about 75 bucks for 2 tanks and the boat ride. Pretty good group of divers, like diving with friends you've known for awhile.
Anyway, I'll check with the guy who normally books it.
