    RBW has a NEW OWNER

    Hey Guys,

    When I look at what we have achieved over the last 3 and a half years on Rebreather World I am really chuffed, we have brought Rebreather diving into the main stream and created the best Community bar none and now have nearly 20,000 members!

    But as we have grown it has taken more and more time to manage and keep on top of things, unfortunately with my work and home commitments I just can't put the sort of time into Rebreather World that our community deserves.

    BUT - I know a man who can

    I am really delighted to announce that Curt Bowen of ADM fame and winner of last years Rebreather Promotion award has taken over at RBW, he and the team at ADM have a lot of energy, enthusiasm and great ideas for improving RBW even more and helping it stay fresh and energisied. I know they are really excited about working with the staff and members to make us even bigger and better.

    I know he is working out the RBW party for DEMA and we should here about it real soon!

    Over to Curt



    It has been four years, four months, and eleven days since Linda and I purchased Rebreatherworld.com from the original founder Stuart Ford. (see above)

    During this time we have been introduced to many good divers from around the globe, traveled to dozens of great dive destinations, and become friends with countless people and rebreather manufacturers.

    In these four years, we have attended numerous trade shows, held several RBW parties, gave away thousands of free RBW t-shirts, and drank plenty of beer with hundreds of new friends.

    As time moves on, things change. Since I retired from the Fire Department almost eight months ago I have been increasingly busy with dive exploration projects, photography jobs, and working with several television networks. Due to the increased time demand from these expeditions and networks, I have been falling short of the required maintenance time for rebreatherworld.

    BUT – We know a man who can

    We are delighted to announce that Peter Sotis of Add Helium will be taking over RBW. We feel Peter and his team will continue to bring Rebreatherworld forward into the future.

    Linda and I will continue to be involved in the diving industry through Advanced Diver Magazine, television filming projects, and where ever exploration takes us.

    When one chapter ends, a new one begins.

    The new chapter in the rebreatherworld saga opens with the words.



    “Over to Peter”.

    Curt,

    Envious of your healthy "retirement", though it doesn't sound like you'll be resting any time soon. Thanks.

    I can't be the only person wonder if this has anything to do with that other fella in Rome who announced he was stepping down....
