Aug. 1, 2011 San Diego Oceans Foundation just finished up the first half of their Dive For A Cause program. After logging over 27 hours of time underwater during the month of July, I, Shaka Doug was presented with the "2011 Diver Of The Year" award. I also raised approximately $500 thanks to friends and families that will go to a great cause. Thanks to all of you who helped me achieve this goal. It was a great month of diving for sure and we recovered many pounds of used and lost fishing weights from the reefs around south Maui. I am looking forward to implementing some of the ideas I got from this event here on Maui such as Storm Drain Stenciling and Fish Counting.
