In Episode 63 we speak with Stefan Simkovics, a man who found his passion for the ocean after spending time traveling the world with the US Navy. Stefan takes us through his enlistment process, choosing a ship to serve on, and the officer role he served on a 400 ft frigate ship. We hear of Stefan becoming a Navy rescue swimmer, his daily life on the ship, and operating along the east coast of Africa supporting operations to combat piracy. Stefan shares his perspective on finding his passion for surfing and prone paddling as he left the Navy and joined as a lifeguard in San Diego.

Thanks for sharing Stefan's ocean life with us. You can find good stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram and Facebook pages. We are on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.
