Here's a cool way I've seen someone make new friends and meet new interesting people: By having a super interesting offer.
Two years ago me and my buddy Noah rented a house in Malibu, CA. and this guy Jon Senstrom reached out and asked us if we wanted to go spearfishing.
OF COURSE THAT SOUNDED AWESOME!
Our house was directly on the beach (brag 😏) so he came over and brought alllll this stuff for us to go spearfishing with:
He brought everything we needed including wetsuits, spear guns, weights, fins etc....
He gave us some training and taught us how not to die while spearfishing:
Here was the loot after going out!
He then spent the rest of the day teaching and helping us prepare the fish into sushi:
Then we made some of the fish scraps into ramen!
Jon said if he wants to meet someone, he'll offer to take them spearfishing, which is a pretty unusual thing.
He's met so many cool people through this, and it costs him nothing! He already has all the equipment, he already has the know-how, and it's a super memorable experience for everyone.
What a creative way to meet cool people!
