Night diving is epic fun! Lol but also scary too haha never know what's lurking in the dark!
I ran head on into a southern giant smooth stingray! He equally sh*t himself ! When we both bumped heads in the shallows hahaha

Hahahaha ,... Well when I was in WA, my stupid mate ran over my line with the boat when I was on a tuna! And all my line wrapped around the bloody prop! & we were in the middle of the Indiana ocean bout 150-170+ of water ! & guess who had to jump in and cut all the line out ?! Yep me lmao!! I was shitting a brick cause I don't know what's lurking in the deep dark ocean! Pretty eery and daunting feeling lol !
