Meet Oleg and Svetlana from Deep Master, One of the primary sponsors of the XXX CMAS World Underwater Spearfishing Championship.  Thank you for all your support with Hawaii Skin Diver TV!

Surf bug

Downloaded my go pro footage and got some good shots. Maika was on the board with the camera so it was his day to get the shots. Next time Kai will get some. But both got their best waves to date.

Maika was charging and wanted to catch every wave that came in. He kept asking this one uncle, can I go? Boys got the surf bug now so stoked for them.
