Extreme Diver Interview – Justin Walkinshaw

The New Year is in full swing. Hopefully 2015 is going to be a fabulous year for everyone! So the blog has been up and running now for a little over a year. Last year we had posts with education, events that Extreme Sports Scuba hosted/were a part of, travel, and even introducing the junior divers as well as the staff who work with Extreme Sports Scuba.

A new series that we are going to start will be a weekly post introducing you, our divers. I’ve had quite a few people volunteer to be interviewed/introduced here on our blog. So we hope that you enjoy this new weekly series!! If you would like to participate, please by all means email me at blogger@extremesportsscuba.com.
