Spearfishing 101: Learn to Spearfish

Spearfishing is a sustainable way to gather one's own food and connect with the underwater world. 

Spearfishing can be a safe activity if properly learned and practiced.


The first step is to become a competent and safe freediver. Knowing how to hold your breath, manage yourself underwater and identify risks is crucial in spearfishing.

Check out below what my Spearfishing 101 workshop involves.
