Here's a short reel of a madman trying to catch waves underwater while on scuba - don't try this at home.
BTW, I know, we should have been wearing helmets but who travels to the Solomons for a dive trip and packs a helmet?
Enjoy!

Did you consider you were breathing compressed air in the shallow waters where you get the greatest depth change?

I don't think the lack of a helmet was the greatest risk.

Still, a cool video.

Haha! Madd ass.


Me and the gf did a shore dive from here a year or so ago and the only exit through the reef was preety narrow. Coming back, the waves had picked up and we were doing a similar thing, involuntarily! We only had a six foot break in the reef to head for though.


Great footage.
