Devil's Teeth
« on: October 02, 2009, 10:06:31 AM »
A short video that is pretty cool, I belive it is about the guy from the book Devils teeth.
discription
Ron Elliott is the only sea urchin diver at the Farallon Islands off the coast of Northern California, where he shares the water with big Great White Sharks, which is just the way he likes it.
This is a documentary of his experiences, in a combination of stunning black & white and underwater, color photography."

Guess he figures he has nothing to lose?? Hep C is bad but not that bad. Guess he's just made his peace with life and what will be will be.

I bet all the marine life out there is big. Not many divers are crazy or ignorant enough to get in those waters. BTW, the book "Devil's Teeth" is a pretty good read. Pick it up if you have the chance.

Now that is one salty dog!  What a way to have spent a life...  the rest of us can only sit back in awe.  Makes sitting here at this desk seem all the more painful.  Thanks for the vid Matt.

Does anyone know when the Farallons were closed off to fishing?  Online it says it became a wildlife refuge in the 70's but I swear I've been rock fishing there on a party boat a few times as a kid. I remember the name Farallons, I remember it was a bunch of islands and I even remember seeing the two houses on the south east island while fishing because I remember telling my dad that we should live there because its close to where we were fishing.


If I only knew what was lurking underneath the boat, it was have made the fishing trip 10X more exciting!!!


EDIT: So apparently the Farallons are open to fishing. I just read a report on Fishsniffer.com of a trip out there for lings.  I do remember hearing about them being closed to fishing before though.  Can anyone clarify this for me?
