Why we launched seven.seven.nine
If Ryan Huff wasn't working overtime, cooking a gourmet meal for family and friends, or coaching his son's baseball team, there was no doubt that he was one with the sea. He was an avid freediver who loved spearfishing and lobster diving, and was always ready for the next adventure.
On September 28, 2019, Ryan was involved in a fatal freediving accident. While the impact of his loss on his family, friends, and diving community has been immeasurable, those closest to him are determined to honor him by ensuring his love of the ocean lives on.
seven.seven.nine was created in order to raise money to provide freediving certification scholarships in Ryan's name. We hope to raise awareness of safety protocols and make safety classes accessible to as many ocean lovers as possible.
