My kid in the zone !! So cool to watch my boy start this hobby and get out there on his own and do it !! He's using a cheap toy right now but I have a chopped down EQX that should fit him well. Gonna take him to some good sand and get in the water soon. He has been snorkeling by my side watching how I do it....I think he's ready to give it a go in the water. This kid if he wants to stick with it will have some real treasure numbers one day.....the island provides, and im a born and raised islander and so we pass the torch down to the next generation of native islanders !! Its my honor to raise this young man in a small island community where we all care about the kids and how there brought up !! I wouldn't trade the island way of life for anything !! Im a proud pappy !!

You will really be proud when his "beginners luck" yields something like a Royal Escudo.

Way too generous. Should be put on scoop detail and getting the sand out when a target is found. Nothing like having a scoop carrier.

WTG Bart!
You'll be the teacher of skills that your son will never learn in any institution/school.
Nothing beats the side by side sharing-nothing!

I had the opportunity to explore, hunt, fish in the water and the dirt at a young age.
The passion was ingrained in the blood, and has stuck there for over 5+ decades.
Looking back to the early days of the family passion of digging, nothing comes close to that connection
