Stu began diving to get the most out of a vacation to Hawaii in 2007. Following Open Water certification he began diving with PCH Scuba for fun, and then took on more training through its Platinum master scuba diver training program. It was evident early on that it was just a matter of time before he started scaling the professional ladder. Breathing underwater, just being neutrally buoyant and getting up close and personal with nature in a way that can never be experienced on land is so amazing, Stu wants to help others learn how to do it and expand the number of ocean ambassadors out there. There's so much cool stuff to see, but if we're not careful it won't be around long.
Stu enjoys diving year-round in Southern California - the kelp forests are spectacular. The slightly colder temperatures in the winter seem tepid to this native Brit, but that’s not to say he doesn’t also enjoy diving in the tropics, particularly on the annual PCH international trip.
