Thanks again for managing the comp Duane! We appreciate all the work!

And congrats to the top 5 on a great year of diving!

Adam is an awesome diver and I lucked out that conditions weren't nicer on the final weekend, because I have no doubt he would have made a run at it!

Eric Keener had a great year and tagged some unbelievable fish. Great job man!

Looking forward to 2019!

+100 to Duane for all the help and text convos this year. I was a newbie nuckle head at the beginning of the year and there were many willing to give me advice to get me to where I am now. Thank you again to all those who invest in the upcoming slayers. I'm stoked to have placed in the top 3 but very ready to push hard in 2019 now that I have a better idea of this area (I would really benefit from that Kayak prize!). I'd love to dive up north with Matt, Adam, Matt M., and the rest of the skilled spearos up there in the coming months. Matt and Adam, you both did amazing and kept racking up the points! I had a fat spreadsheet tracking everyone's progress and I just couldn't find the bigger ling & scallop at the end to close the gap. This being my first comp, I take it we will have a get together somewhere to celebrate? What can I do to help in 2019 with facilitation and such?

I'm definitely going to push DOTY with my dive community down here in PG/Monterey/Sur/South Bay. This was such a fun competition and taught me a ton about fish/spots/structure/behavior/strategy etc.

Thank you again to all who helped this year!
