In this episode, I chat with Fernando Ries. Not to be confused with the Brazilian Olympic Weightlifter of the same name, Fernando was born in Portugal and has travelled the world to learn and educate about his love for Sharks.


Over a brew Andy and Fernando talk about how they first met 4 years ago and how as a shark diver he has delivered presentations to a mix of kids in schools, military divers and contributing the the European Citizens Initiative to prevent the import and exportation of shak fins.


His other interests include, Jazz music, motorbikes and fine art. If you want to hear all the details, grab yourself a brew and listen to his insightful and exciting story.

✅ “Fancy a brew?” a Scuba Diving inspired chat over a brew about life, adventure, mental and physical resilience and determination to succeed in the sport we love.


✅ The podcast where I’ll be talking to those who influenced me as a diver, about their incredible experiences and how they found mental and physical resilience, whilst devoting their lives to Scuba Diving. These will (hopefully) be insightful and exciting discussions about people taking on scuba diving and its challenges, and how they came out the other side stronger through finding inspiration in connecting with nature’s underwater world.
