This one came out of nowhere! Never heard of this one …until a friendly user recommended me a certain movie with his favorite scuba scene. 🙂
THANKS a lot! Of course he got some free months in the VIP club for such a GREAT recomendation!
And well, it is a great find for me and actually a scene for my Hall of Fame here on Frogwoman.
Because it offers an extremely rare ending, but more on that later…
Story: A couple invites another couple on a vacation at their beach house. Things between them are getting …”complicated” and two team up against the other woman.
And here is the video:
Well, isn’t that a great find for lovers of scuba peril/action?
But let’s start with the negative aspects first.
The whole movie is on youtube in a rather bad picture quality (352*240), I found a slightly better source, with the same resolution, but better quality. Still, it would be great to see that scene at least in DVD quality (around 640*480).
The sound of the bubbles sound like bad effects to me.
She drowns way too fast, even she is exhausted after the struggle, she shouldn’t drown in a matter of seconds.
I skipped through the movie (spanish language only) and it has some weird moments (like the ending on the beach). Overly dramatic music and effects.
Some weird things/errors I found:
The air hose (of the victim) seems to be leaking a bit (right at the 1st stage) during the fight!
Both the evil attackers wore black wetsuits, while she is wearing a colorful wetsuit. That underlines who are the bad guys here.
They rip off her tank….then a close up to her…the tank is still there! (editing/continuity mistake)
Off course she is wearing a weight belt, but it is gone (for no reason) as she ends up on the beach. (continuity mistake)
And now to the positive aspects, and there are a lot!
Scuba fights with women are pretty rare (and here we have even 2 involved)! An air hose cut in such a fight scene is even rarer!! And …air hose cut (by an attacker) in such a a fight…leading to the death of a frogwoman ….is EXTREMELY rare!!! As a matter of fact, I only know one more scene where that happens.
I love how she really fights against these two. She is focused on not loosing her regulator, shielding it with one hand for most of the time, and she fights them off for quite a while!
Sorry, for not making a post last wekk, but I felt a little….demotivated.
Now it is finally time for the big showdown in this Baywatch episode, the first scene of the same episode can be found here.
And what is the big showdown? A rather epic SCUBA FIGHT with 2 frogmen and 2 frogwomen!!!
The scene has around 10 minutes in total, so I decided to split it into 2 parts to avoid having trouble with YouTube/the copyright owners (the longer a video gets…the bigger the chances it gets blocked…instead of “just” getting ADs).
So, here you go, Part 1:

And here is the video – PART 1:
Preview, Part 2:

And here is the video, Part 2:
I had to cut this part down under 5 minutes to not getting it blocked on YouTube.
Here is the LONGER CUT of the whole scene, with some seconds more of part 1:
Another scene with a female diver from Baywatch in HD!
Here it is Alexandra Paul who is getting ready to dive to take a soil sample from the sea bottom. She wants to get it after a close (male) friend of hers was attacked underwater earlier.
She wants to get a sample to prove a pollution/contamination.
Of course the bad guys are already close….and want to stop her!

And here is the video:
I really like that scene…even they wasted a lot of potential in my opinion.
I like how she manages to fight them off at first. And how they chase her…reaching for her fins.
It’s only weird that these evil two guys are so damn slow…they fail to force her into another struggle, they can’t catch up with her, and they seem to be way…way….way….slower than the 2 Baywatch divers. And they are easy prey for Mitch and his dive buddy.
I wonder how they scene would have developed without the reinforcement for her….
Well, with this post I wanna start a new category! There are a lot of comics that have scuba scenes in it. Some of them have scenes with underwater fights or other peril scenes. And some of those should have female divers in it (even most of these action scenes are with men 🙁 ).
So, I wanna present scenes that I found AND scenes that you can recommend (more on that below).
Ok, the scene for today is from a comic book from germany. So most of you should have problems to understand the written parts.
But don’t worry, the story is very simple.
Mike Nelson (the hero from Sea Hunt!) has found out about a criminal couple who steal from yachts at night. So he swims after them (without scuba gear….he wasn’t prepared) and wants to stop them!
(click on the image to enlarge it to full size!)
Ok, well, the action scene with the female diver only has one panel….but with the text…it really fuels the imagination 😉
English translation of the text in that panel:
Mike passes the girl. He rips the air hose from her tank and forces her to the surface.
Well, that’s a pretty great line 😉
Now imagine that scene in a movie…..wouldn’t that be great?
Ok, these two criminals doing a very poor job. They are 2 against one. They both have full sets of scuba gear. And Mike has no gear at all, not even a mask.
And yet he easily finishes them off….he’s Mike “the scuba warrior” Nelson! 😉
And I don’t know if you actually could rip a modern air hose off a tank….but that’s a nice experiment for some day. 🙂
I will try to get more scenes with female divers in action, but here’s my question!
Do you know any scenes like that? With female divers in action/peril in comic books?
If yes, please let me know! If the scene is good I will offer a free month (or monthS) for the Frogwoman VIP club in return!
Thanks for the recommendations so far (by mail, comment or otherwise)!
I already got 2 great scenes and one good one that will be posted in the next weeks here!
Keep em coming!
Already gave out a total of 6 months free VIP memberships.
