First Look Checks Out[edit]

While this needs some cleanup and wikification, but the facts appear to check out. See the following:

Sharkman: Ron, if I remember correctly, you were the first to Freedive with Great Whites during the filming of "Blue Wilderness" episode "Shark Shocker" in South Africa.

Ron: As far as I know we were the first to dive with Great Whites without a cage when shooting Blue Wilderness series at Dyer Island in South Africa. Our cage had been lost during a storm, so we had no choice. Four of us went in with the Whites, Valerie, myself, George Askew and another South African whos name escapes me at the moment.

I had dived previously with Whites outside the cage in South Australia, but no more than 5-10 meters from the cage.

From here http://www.sharkmans-world.com/rv.htm

I removed the unverified tag.

Ace with the verification. With regards to cleanup, which bit specifically needs clean-up, i can't particularly see that much to clean-up. i removed the link to Askew's website, because it doesnt appear to be relevant, and was added by User:Georgea, so possible advertisement. i am also quite worried about the title, i put it under that title because that was the best i could think of, but its still not good. aside from that though, the article doesnt seem that "unclean", could you give a more specific idea of what you think should be cleaned up?

I added an introductory sentance to conform a little more closely with accepted style guidelines. Removed the cleanup tag. --circuitloss 16:44, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Seems mergable, but that might be my perception, I am not an expert on the subject. People Powered 04:08, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

I do not agree, sure can be merged, but GWS page should not be cluttered with one shark diving expidition, this expedition and others like the Blue Water, White Death' expedition (dont look we do not have any page about it yet as far as I know) should probably be merged into one article but I do not agree with merging this into GWS.
