As a kid growing up in Southern California, I never actually went diving, but I knew the most famous SCUBA diver in all of Hollywood, Mike Nelson! I watched his show, "Sea Hunt” religiously. Every show was great--lots of adventure and plenty of underwater knife fights, shrouded in bubbles, and Mike never lost one of ‘em!

By that time, the surf scene was in full swing and the Beach Boys and the Association were playing on every kids transistor radio out by the pool.
