Bjarne Knudsen began diving in 1993, took his first tech classes in 1997, and his first GUE Cave and Tech classes in 1999. He has been part of the GUE community since the early days. In the early 2000s, he spent some years in Florida, where he was a part of the WKPP. During this time, he also pushed Sheck Exley’s end of line in the Cathedral Cave system, together with Todd Leonard (and a lot of support from friends). Bjarne and his wife are currently on a slow world cruise on their sailboat. Over the last few years, kept getting stuck in Mexico and the surrounding countries, which offer plenty of excellent diving.
