Got certified back i october and spent most of winter doing research before buying my equipment, i have everything except for dry suit or cold water wet suit for now, and some accesories that im looking around for.
I want to dive local as much as i can cause im only afforded a few weeks a year of vacation time so they will be used in Florida. I am adventurous, i was raised around water and i dont fear it....BUT I KNOW MY LIMITS, if i have to dive in a pond i will.
Not interested in pairing up with a tech oriented diver (not that they would be interested in pairing up with me), im looking to hang with cool recreational divers that know where to go in the NYC area.
See ya soon.........hopefully

I'm in the NYC area. Don't do too much local diving; I mostly head down to the Caribbean. Mainly, because my wife doesn't like cold water diving. But I'm up for anything.
