Pivot

Myself and a friend headed out looking for eagle rays (Aetobatus narinari), we hoped for a couple, we saw over 28! We saw a fever of 28 rays as they glided underneath us with their beauty honestly taking our breaths away. On our second pass I made my first freedive. I dived down and to my total surprise the rays accepted me and allowed me straight through the middle of them, it was during that first pass Pivot was born.
