2013 Goals
« on: March 04, 2013, 11:00:26 AM »
We are less than a month away from the 2013 AB season and I know quite a few have already been spearing this year. I thought it may be a good time for us all to consider our goals for the year. In a sport like this I think it is good to challenge yourself and also help others accomplish their goals, keeps the buddy connections even tighter and also allows you to share in someone's success. If you get a minute, post two goals for yourself this dive season....make one challenging!

Ling Dinger's goal:

1. Shoot/kill/consume a ling....30+"
2. Harvest a scallop

1. Increase static to over 6 minutes.
2. Dive to 100'.
3. Hunt at 50' for well over a minute.
4. Polespear an olive, halibut, vermilion, sheep's head, and monkey face.
5. Finally pop at least one 10" ab.

The question is, what is everyone doing to achieve these goals?

Chuck your out also for posting too many goals! Just kidding. I would hope other divers help each other in completing/obtaining these goals.

Oops, my top two goals are
1. 6 minute or better static.
2. Dive to 100' or deeper

I'm still curious to hear what people are doing to achieve these goals.
