Curtis Roberston had a passion for Scuba Diving so in 1980 he scraped together enough capital to start his American Dream when he opened the Underwater Connection on North 1st street in Abilene, Texas. By providing scuba training classes for Hardin Simmons University and McMurry University as well as offering classes to the general public Curtis Robertson was able to grow his business into a successful enterprise by infusing his passion for scuba diving into his students. "Who would have thought that a scuba store could make it in West Texas? Well I did" said Curtis and it has been succesful.

The Underwater Connection to this day hosts scuba diving trips around the world diving in global hot spots like Palau, The Truk Islands, The Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Belize, Bonaire, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, Dominica, Granada, Bahamas and many many more. Scuba training, scuba gear, scuba accessories and Scuba fun is what happens at Abilene Sports Connection.
