He’s got a good amount of followers on YouTube now. I’ve been watching his stuff for over a year now and believe he met up with one of the members on here for proper abalone diving techniques. He seems like a good guy and probly knows about ncka but fails to recognize and reduce hazards and risks associated with the sport. His first abalone dive video was very cringe worthy but is doing better now. He’s got entertaining content but yeah hope he starts to focus a little more on his safety rather than what his next video will be. Most of us started out with the bare minimum just to get otw (if even that). He doesnt post much kayak fishing videos but the next time hes out I hope hes geared and prepared more appropriately.

I saw that video as soon as it came out. For the reason you stated, I gave him a negative on that video and left a comment asking him to do a video focusing on kayak safety. Seriously, it could be his last video if anything went wrong that day.

I met up with Matts and helped him with ab diving safety. Hes a good guy and loves fishing.

Are you guys really trash talking him for not having a wetsuit and using a home made anchor? :smt044 Hes wearing a PFD which is more than Id do. Sometimes this site cracks me up...


 Hate all you want, hes still getting paid  :smt005

I offered him complimentary safety gear if he wants to make more kayak fishing videos. He is a good presenter, and I would like to see more of his stuff without cringing every 5 seconds.  :smt044

Thats really nice of you. I'm sure he will take you up on advice and gear.

As for the 200k subs, its youtube. On the same internet with people telling others to mix bleach and muriatic acid to clean stuff. And here people are worried about this not carrying a radio.

The nearest first marine responder is the HMB Harbor Master thats about 30 miles away.
There is next to no cell phone coverage at PP.   Yeah its important to carry radio.  I dont get your analogy about mixing stuff on youtube.  This a safety forum.

That's his choice. Some people know the risks and accept them. Those that don't know the risk can be educated and offered up safety gear like Archie did(kudos).

I honestly don't care about wearing a PFD or a radio. It's my choice, and I don't understand why it seems some on here like chastising others for their decisions in life.


If you don't get my analogy about randomly trusting people on the internet without doing your own research about an activities safety, maybe you should try mixing those two. (POOR JOKE DO NOT MIX, TOXIC)

Youtube is filled with unsafe activities. Some downright suicidal. If you "can't believe this guy" you should really poke around Youtube some more hahaha....
