Upcoming Speakers

DCOSV has a number of upcoming speakers:

Speaker on Feb 15th:
Channeling the Islands – Mike Boom, Videographer

Over the past four years, videographer Mike Boom and his wife Lynn have joined renowned underwater filmmakers Howard and Michele Hall on a live-aboard dive boat for an annual five-day dive trip in the Channel Islands in southern California. Mike will present a video recollection of those dives featuring gyrating sea lions, amorous sea hares, menacing giant sea bass, grumpy fringeheads, scurrilous divers, an agitated octopus, an oddly friendly bat ray, and a literal cast of millions (if you count plankton). Bonus points if you bring your own seaweed snacks.
Mike will also present some video shorts from diverse dive destinations around the world.
Mike has been shooting underwater video since 2001. He worked as the video pro on the live-aboard Nai'a in Fiji, and has had his videos featured in underwater film festivals around the world. You can see some of his shorts at LaughingEelVideo/videos

Speaker on March 1st - Dirk Hohndel
Open Source Maintainer of Subsurface – a free dive log on your computer

Do you dive with a dive computer?
Do you log your dives?
Subsurface is a free (as in, open source and also no cost, no ads, no catch) dive log that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It supports most common dive computers and makes it easy to track your diving (and for the tech divers, you can even plan future dives with it). Subsurface offers free cloud storage of your dive log which allows (password protected) access to your dive log from a web browser or from iOS and Android apps. Dirk is the maintainer of Subsurface and will talk about some of the features of Subsurface, show how it works and answer questions for those interested in learning more about Subsurface.

Speaker on March 15th - Dan Abbot
Central Coast Regional Manager for Reef Check California
Dan will tell us about Reef Check California and the work they are doing

Speaker on April 5th - Todd Steiner
Director of the Turtle Island Restoration Network
