Spearfishing and freediving are serious activities. Dangerous? Can be… If you don’t know what you are doing and if you do not control yourself. This week I went out with Craig. He went out with us before and we had a fantastic time. Love my job. I eat fresh fish a lot, jeje. Meeting wonderful people is another great part of my job as well. So Craig and I went along very well. And we caught good dinner for all of us.
Freediving safely is very important. Every free diver/hunter has to develop a comfort zone and then dive by the rules. I personally never dive on “automatic pilot”. Every dive is a serious dive. Though that does not mean we don´t smile, jeje.
Actually the team is always teasing me that when I get too old to be a spearo, I could work in toothpaste advertising. Spearfishing with a smile. YEAHHHHH!
In my right hand by the way I am holding a (very delicious) Rainbow Runner. That is such a great fish to hunt for. We do not have them a lot here. And you only have 1 chance if you see one. It´s a curious fish. It approaches you, but 1 movement too much and adios. It is a running fish, so it won´t stay at the same spot.
