Suiting up to go abalone diving. OK sign means I'm ready to go. ** please note: This is not a sport for beginners to try on their own -- go only with experienced divers and always have a skillful buddy who can watch your back! Several people die each year pursuing this sport, so it is not to be undertaken lightly. If you are over age 40, get a clearance from your physician before starting, as this can be an extremely physically demanding sport. **
