Scuba with Cullen Sander
The first breath you take at the bottom of the ocean is a particularly strange moment. I’m not going to say it’s incredible and life-changing, or scary and nerve-racking - because the truth is it’s different for everyone. Personally, I wasn’t frozen in amazement, I struggled for my entire first dive before I even thought about trying to enjoy myself. But there is one thing I can say for that first diving experience, something everyone goes through, regardless of confidence and comfort. It is absolutely fascinating to find yourself captured in the weightlessness of water without having to focus on getting back to the surface. You start to give attention to your movements and practically learn how to walk again as you try to control your body. Scuba becomes a preview into the feeling of zero gravity while simultaneously immersing you in an ecosystem you see little of in day to day life. I highly recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest. Besides, there’s no other way to figure out if you love it.
