ISSUE 1 ARCHIVE - NON-CELEBRITY DIVER, SIMON JOBSON

JOB

Alas yes, I need to have money to buy shiny, new kit & pay to go away.

Non-Celebrity Diver

TOTAL DIVES

Lots & lots.

MAX DEPTH

Really quite deep in my opinion, though will go deeper again soon...

MOST EXPENSIVE PIECE OF KIT

Nikon D80 Digital SLR & Housing, though I will not say how much as I lied to my other half about cost.

CAN'T DO WITHOUT

My X650's, sweet regs indeed, though a mask is pretty essential too.

COOLEST THING SEEN U/W

An obvious answer is dolphins or sharks, so I will say prawns.

NON-CELEB MOMENT

I saw Jade Goody eating a pie once, either that or that I once met a bloke whose sister was at a wedding the year before and sat on the same table as Robbie William's cousin.

WOULD NEVER DIVE

Drunk.

BBS (BEST BACON SARNIE)

Alas, perfection in this department is only achieved at home, failing that see question see further on.

BEST BUDDY

My mate Mikey, who seems to return with more gas than when we left. Also I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for kindly attracting great schools of fish for me to watch by vomiting over me from the boat while I was on a safety stop in the Red Sea. Also my other half is coming along nicely.

WORST BUDDY

Some Italian coral crushing turtle surfer, his name was Guiseppe Bolognese I seem to recall.

LIFE CHANGING BIZARRE DIVE MOMENT

Learning to speak underwater & subsequently being understood, though I won't divulge my technique...

FAVOURITE UK DIVE LOCATION

Wraysbury - for the Bacon Sandwich Lady.

FAVOURITE OVERSEAS DIVE LOCATION

Difficult one, but a toss up between Pemba & Vanuatu.

STILL WANNA DIVE...

Madagascar.

AIR OR NITROX

Either or.

TANYA STREETER OR MIRANDA KRESTOVNIKOFF

No brainer, no contest, Streeter of course.

MONTY HALLS OR NICK BAKER

Monty Halls seems a jolly nice fellow.
