My 10 year old son just got his PADI junior water card. I am very proud of him. On his very first dive after getting his card, he got to see a couple of sharks, a couple of small morays, several turtles, beau-coup barracuda and he actually held a baby lion fish. I got most of it on video, especially the lion fish. He also got to dive and penetrate the wreck of the C-54 the mexican mine sweeper with a dive master.

We just got back from COZ and I will be posting pixs as soon as we "off gas".

Congrats on the new dive buddy. I dove with my two 14yo daughters last weekend. Their first dives since OW. They did great.

I bought Oly XZ-1 with Inon D2000 for her, and she learn UWP with Jeff Mullin in Bali. She hasn't updated her blog yet. Here, few pics she shot during our last trip to Bali last month:

Kevin is 10 and I don't think he realizes how lucky he is to do it all in COZ. I went on every lesson and video taped most of it. It was fun to watch him become a diver and share my passion.

We don't let him do any sort of forums or chat yet. He just likes to play computer games and Xbox. To him diving is just another fun thing to do. He doesn't "have to dive" like his dad does. I think he has the bug, but he just doesn't know it yet.

Welcome aboard Jonathan! Lots of good folks, lots of experience and folks in every level of experience from "I want to learn" to "Well, back in the days before..."

One way to get a little more start up exposure: make your own Newcomer thread. More folks will see it there than adding to someone else's. Not that this is bad or will get you flamed, but it will help others see you as you.
