    Need freedive lobster hunting buddy in San Diego

    Hey lobster divers, I am looking for another daring diver that would want to join in on the lobster season with me.

    wetsuit thickness.

    So i was looking through the internet and i realized there was a lack of guides for choosing wetsuit thickness for freediving. Most posts were for scuba diving suits which we all know are different from freediving suits in purpose. So i decided to make this post on my opinion about how thick...

Traveling to Eygpt in September is it better for me bring my own gear from home (Australia), or just rent out some gear when i get there?

    Question Mask volume and "compressibility ratio"? Why its important?

    So far I always read, the lower volume the better and there is nothing else to care about. I understand basic logic - the smaller volume, the easier to equalize. But then I read some threads on this forum, and some users often mention things like "compressibility ratio". I even found a post...

    Question What Weight belt on swimsuit

    Hi, I'd like to ask about what kind of a weight belt I should get. I know it's good to get a rubber one so it doesn't slip. I won't be wearing a wetsuit though as I'm going to really warm waters and I will have just a swimsuit. I wonder whether it will be slippery on a swimsuit as it's a...

    SalviMar One Freediving Watch: Thoughts/Reviews?

I was on Neptonics and came across the SalviMar One dive watch. It seems ideal and not a huge chunk out of my paycheck either. Does anyone...

    Question Scuba wetsuit for freediving/spearfishing

    Hey guys. I know scuba wetsuits are very different from freediving/spearfishing wetsuits. But does it really make a huge difference, even for begginers? I am planning to buy a wetsuit for spearfishing and freediving. I found one in very good conditions (used twice only) for an awesome price...
