Erica is one of our “product testers,” which means she’s out on the water playing with our toys as often as she can be. PADI certified at 12 years old, her first post-certification dive was a night dive. We followed that up with 2 wrecks and a deep dive over the next few days.
Her instructors called her a natural, and they had no reservations about moving her straight into advanced diving. Of course, she was paired up with mom and dad, advanced divers and one a physician. Since then, she’s dived cenotes in the Yucatán peninsula, lava tube swim throughs in Hawaii, night dives with Manta Rays in Kona, and many more.
On every trip we’ve taken, Erica has grabbed a mask and fins or a paddle board whenever possible. With her degree in Architecture and a minor in Art, she has a keen eye for good design. She currently works as a product manager for design development on large scale commercial buildings, museums, Universities and more.
She also picked up flyboarding quickly, flashing me the peace sign as she did a dock “fly by” on her first outing.
