    KISS Team addition

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope everyone had a great holiday season! Here at KISS, we are all looking forward to a new year of diving.

    I am happy to announce that we are adding to our KISS team. Over the last couple of years, it has been suggested to me more than once that divers, KISS divers in specific, would like to see us have more of a presence on the forums, Rebreather World in particular. The challenge has been to find the right person. We were looking for a KISS diver who is passionate about our rebreather's, who is knowledgeable and able to answer questions on a professional level, and be available to do so. Our newest team member, Walt Stearns, certainly qualifies.

    Walt Stearns is one of the most prolific underwater and water sports photojournalists in North America. His images and writing have appeared in a wide variety of national and international publications for over 20 years, with many of his photos gracing the covers. He has vast knowledge and experience in the marine and outdoor environment. Walt has also participated on many documentary and marine sport film projects that have aired internationally on stations such as ESPN, Discovery Channel and the Travel Channel.

    Walt is certified up to Trimix CCR and is working on his KISS Instructor rating. He is a great resource of information and has traveled and dived worldwide in a variety of different environments and locations. Along with his KISS rebreather knowledge, he has a strong background with general diving equipment and has worked with other manufacturers in the past.

    For those who would like to know more about Walt, and his projects, his website is, Aqua Pages | Underwater Journal | Underwater Diving Resources.

    Walt, welcome on board!

    Best regards,

    Thanks everyone. I donít think I could belong to a better group than here on Rebreatherworld and KISS.

    For my trade rebreathers are a fantastic tool that I keep discovering more often, such as today off Jupiter, FL

    Congratulations Walt and well done Kim for such forward thinking.

    It takes guts to have an official spokes person on a public forum and to do so demonstrates not only a great deal of confidence in your product but also a willingness to listen.





    Now .... about that ADV :D
