Cayman Brac Devestation!
There has been a lot of mis-information circulated in the international media. Although the larger island of Grand Cayman generally escaped the wrath of Hurricane Paloma, the sister islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman endured a direct strike recorded at a Category 4. According to The Caymanian Compass, “Up to 1,000 people have been left homeless…” more... Photos can be found here. This is especially disturbing to those of us that have visited the beautiful island and stayed at the heavily damaged Brac Reef Beach Resort. The resort expects to have repairs (rebuilding) finished in April of 2009. Please support the island and the resort by booking a trip there when they re-open.

SHARKWATERIn theatres March 23, 2007.
Go see SHARKWATER. Last night I went to an advanced screening of SHARKWATER, all that I can say is WOW! What is SHARKWATER? Well, it is a spectacular documentary that started out as a way for director, Rob Stewart, to show people that sharks are a wonderful creature that should be marveled, not feared; but it turned in to a lot more. First off, SHARKWATER is visually stunning; there are many wonderful shots of the oceans most perfect inhabitant. Stewart shows us how politically corrupt countries are allowing the slaughter of millions of sharks every year. Stewart sets the record straight and this documentary will show how the dedication and passion of a few can start conservation revolution. I will recommend SHARKWATER to all my students and when it comes out on DVD, I will be showing it in class. A full review will be posted in the Community section in the near future. -Brent founder

I have put up a few more gallery pages so please check out the gallery albums look under Member Photos/Brent Podruzny.
Well, my wedding on Feb 23 went perfectly. I sure do miss the ocean/heat/all-inclusive lifestyle.

Feb 15, 2007

I have put up a few more gallery pages so please check out the gallery albums .
Only 3 more sleeps until me and the family are off to Mexico. Stay tuned for some new albums from my trip (and maybe even a few pictures from my wedding.)
The website will likely not be updated for then next couple of weeks, I am back from Mexico on March 4th so I will add the new albums shortly after that.

Jan 29, 2007

Well, my internet has been down for the last 2 weeks, I am supposed to finally have a service guy coming tomorrow to get it fixed. Doesn't it bug you when you are on hold and you hear a message that says "you should sign up for SHAW's reliable high speed internet" ... when yours is not working. Anyway, I hope to have a couple new gallery albums added sometime this week as well as some of my favorite SCUBA related links, provide the SHAW guys are able to get me up an running again.

Jan 6, 2007

I think that all of the links are working now. A Community (newsgroup) section has been added. I swapped out the Flash galleries because they were too slow. Keep checking back and send an email if you have any comments...or leave a comment in the Community section.

Dec 5 , 2007 is finally up and running. Not all of the links work yet but keep checking back. I hope to have the gallery section going in a couple of days

A bad day diving is better than a good day at work.
