Hi!

My name is Paul and I am a freediver/ spearfisherman recently moved to Oakland, CA. I've been freediving for about 3 years and new to spearfishing- pretty much started since I got here 6 months ago. I've been to Mendocino coast for some abalones and Monterey for some fish. I want to see if there are any groups that meet for apnea training and to share tricks and locations for spearfishing. I have been SCUBA diving for 4 years but moving away from that now for freediving..

Sidenote: I am trying to find out any, if at all, information about freediving the Great Blue Hole in Belize. I would love to go there, kiss the bottom and come back up.. If there is anyone who's done this, please let me know!

Thanks and nice to meet you all!

Hey Paul,

My name is Eric, I'm from the Bay Area as well. I'm headed to Belize to get Scuba certified, but would love to do some spearfishing as well.
Did you find any good operators there? Hope you are getting some abs this season!
