Sorry for your loss bro and my thoughts and prayers go to all the families.

So around 3PM ish yesterday I'm cleaning my ab that I harvested from Fort Bragg on Saturday. I prepped it like I always did the way Tae taught me.

He owned a Sushi restaurant in Dublin called Amakara. That weekend in May 2012 he showed me how he would prep it for sashimi and other dishes that I still use to this day.

I've only seen him once after that fun filled weekend at the parking lot of Van Damme in 2013 where we greeted each other with a hug. He had finished with diving for the day and I was just starting.

Yesterday as I prepped my ab I remembered him commenting on my snoring that weekend. I just kind of chuckled to myself.

It's eerie to think that he was probably diving when I was thinking of him.  :smt010

I was just at Amakara on Saturday for dinner with my family, it's one of our favorite restaurants. Super sad for them.
I'd rather be fishing...

Swell jumped on the north Mendocino coast from 5@10 or so to 10@14 rather quickly Sunday afternoon.  Tragedy could have been prevented by a quick buoy forecast check.

Friday/Saturday were excellent diving conditions on the Sonoma/south Mendocino coast.  Sunday was worse.  I wonder if they heard and got excited.

Sad deal indeed, the bright side though, he was able to go while doing what he loved, we all should be so lucky. Most of us will not get that choice, we will either die of a car crash, cancer, bullet in some foreign country fighting a war, or accident at work. The inevitable is coming for us all, ab diving, I will take that.  :smt006
