People often tell me I am a lucky guy living in paradise. I do agree it is great to live in paradise, though I do think as well that everybody can do it. As señor Nike says: “Just do it”. Of course, you need to have some %&!/, work hard and be honest, but then at a certain point really good things will happen and living in paradise becomes really living in paradise. Every day I thank myself and the universe that I am able to do what I love to do so much. I love to free dive and I love to spearfish. I realized it even more this week.
We went out in Playa del Carmen with “double T”, Tim from USA and Thomas from Denmark. Thomas as well is a passionate spearfisherman. We had a no show and just going out with Thomas is not a right decision… money wise. However, we did not wanna ruin Thomas´ morning and our own morning either, jaja. Thomas will join the European spearfishing championships in Europe this Summer and is really a great guy.
We got some fish, some footage, and had a really great time. On the picture we took above, you can see us and the crew in Playa del Carmen. When I looked at that picture I realized life is great. We take out great guests and have a great crew. It´s fantastic to be surrounded by fantastic people.
PS Yes, I am wearing a thick sweater while it is bloody hot outside. Crazy Dutchman.
