    New Freedive Spearfisherman from Central Florida

    I Live in Cental Florida and have recently gotten into freedive spearfishing. I have taken a level 1 freedive certification course, as well as a spear fishing course. I don't have any friends that are into spearfishing, so I am looking to network and find some dive buddies in Florida. Hopefully...

    Hello from North Carolina

    Hi all! I am very glad I found such an online freediving crowd. I used to be an average swimmer, but I did not swim for the last 7 years for studying time management sake - such a shame! A month ago, I had the chance to get back to water, and start swimming, but that's when I found out more...

    New to this*

    Hi there I'm new to this, the reason for the star is I used to spearfish with a poles pear, nothing big time. But I took a 3 year break while in the army. So I'm home now and I just bought a cressi comanche 75 last night on amazon, and was wondering if this is a good starter gun? I live in the...

    Venice Florida Dive buddy wanted

    I have been freediving for one summer and totally love it. I often go from shore and swim out to the local reef and poke around. There are some great finds out there as well as some nurse sharks and goliath groupers. I am looking for someone to go out with me on a regular basis for some...

    Howdy from Sarasota, Florida

    Hello from Palm Beach, Florida

    I've been spearfishing and free diving for about two years until I recently sold my boat this August so I took a good break, but my family has recently purchased a boat so I figured I get back into it. If anyone knows of some decent spots to check out around Palm Beach let me know. I can dive...

    Spearfishing Miami

    Gone out the past three weeks and have yet to bring home my first fish. Been diving the reefs off of Key Largo and Fowey Lighthouse but nothing has been an appropriate size to be able to take home.
