For this generous loyality, I coordially invite you and your membership to join me for an interesting and exciting 60 minutes with Rod.

Sincerely yours,

Rodney Orr Tele-Conference

Thank you for your interest in the upcoming FREE TeleConference with our very special guest, Rodney Orr of Santa Rosa, California. A Free-diver with more than 45 years of experience and the only person in the world that I am aware of that has the distinction of being attacked TWICE by Great White Sharks:

1961 – “As the shark charged me I raised my arm to deflect its mouth but it grabbed my hip, biting into my weight belt and hooking a piece of my wetsuit. I began gouging the shark’s eye as it pulled me through the water.”

1990 – “I was face down when the water seemed to explode all around me, as my head and shoulders were lifted from the water. My vision cleared just for a moment, long enough for me to see water rushing under my head. A large triangular tooth blocked most of the vision of my right eye, as I realized my head was in the mouth of a Great White Shark and it was racing out to sea.”

In addition to our visit with Rodney, we will discuss the increase in stranded marine mammals this past year and the possible implications on your ocean water activities.

The FREE Tele-Conference will be held on Tuesday, February 10th from 6:00 – 7:00 PM (Pacific). To participate in this call, here’s all you need do. Right now, send an email* to:


and put the word “Conference” in the subject line of your email. That’s it. There is no need to write a message unless you have a special question for Rodney or our discussion. So, please join me for an extraordinary conversation with Rodney Orr about his TWO encounters with Great White Sharks and for the answers to your questions.
