Group Description

This club is for all divers to share their experiences & what gear they use or for anyone who is interested in diving! Feel free to talk about anything involving diving. It doesn't matter where you live in the world. Feel free to post scuba diving pictures. The pics should be no bigger then 400 x 300.

I also started with hopes of having a place for all the people who have been helping me, to get together. Also to meet new people on the way! Now a little about my self, I am 31 years old, have had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy most of my life, am on a ventilator 24/7 & use a wheelchair. But, none of that holds me back. I love everything to do with the underwater world. I have been working on my life long dream to scuba dive.

I took my first ocean dive on Nov of 06. It's a big challenge for someone like me to dive. Diving is a world that most people take for granted. Everyone should have a chance to experience it. I have made big friends in the diving world & have many great minds working on this. I always enjoy hearing more ideas from others. The new life support system we’re working on will be an advancement for the technology of diving. I'm now a certified open water diver. I am also certified with dry suits and full face masks.

I have a donation fund set up. Ocean Opportunity is an established 501c3 organization. They helped me with my early project coordination. If you would like more details about my project, go to 'Links' here & click on 'Matt's Web Sites'.

I love sharing my dream with everyone! I look forward to hearing any thoughts from all of you. The more people that know about my dream the better the chance that others will reach their own dreams.

I want to thank all my family & friends (divers & non-divers) who have helped me along the way. I wouldn't be where I am now, if it wasn't for your friendship & support. If you have a dream, never give up on it. Dreams can come true!
