Hi looking to get into spearfishing, buying right gear and doing it the right safe way
I would reccomend getting into one of our freediving classes so you can learn the correct techniques and safe diving practices. Having your dive skills down will make your spearfishing that much more enjoyable. We have all the gear here at the shop. Stop in and take a look around
