My New Freediving Mission



I want to teach more people how to Freedive safety than any other person on the planet. There I said it. Last year at the Blue Wild expo around midnight of the first night, Chris Bustad PFI Instructor Trainer said, what are your goals for Immersion?   I thought for a second and realized I had none. Immersion was rocking and rolling. So I sat there for a bit with I’m sure a dumb look on my face for a bit and eventually said, “I want spearfisherman to stop killing themselves.” It is so frustrating to keep reading about...

The Snub

There comes a time in every man’s life where he needs to drop his need to be the best. Drop his competitive nature, let go of his pride, step aside, and let the next generation shine. And I think I more than proved in my “Changing of the Guard” article that I know when that time is. I think you will find that I prove it again with this story. So here goes.

Words by Chris Okamoto The surest way to start a fight with a group of spearos is to step into a crowded room and ask them, “hey what’s the best speargun?” If you should be brave enough to ask that then as soon as the last word leaves your lips you probably want to dive for cover while covering your genitals (and any other susceptible area that is prone to injury by your peers) as no one will agree on this.

Protect your investment with a Coastline Boatlift Cover

The majority of spearfishermen have a legitimate amount of money tied up in spearfishing equipment, but on average the largest investment is your boat. We spend hours each season doing maintenance, washing and waxing after each trip and keeping our vessels up to snuff for those long runs offshore. No matter how stedfast we are trying to keep them in tip top shape, the harsh summer sun, salt and elements battle against us the entire way. As always we love introducing our readers to new and innovative products and this segment is no different. After a few months of...
