Thats true, but having said that the most famous freedivers that I know (and Iam not an expert on this )such as Pipin, Umberto Pel, Tanya,Megan H-G ) started off spearing before they hit the big time as professional freedivers.
let me think about it . ah maybe ah i dont know , wondering wondering , wondering , am *%^&()£$"_ ah dam right a dam yes yes all the way !!!!!
OK folks - we're going to take the plunge and look to start a Spearo section on the main website.

We're going to be recruiting a Spearo Editor (to work with the rest of the editorial team) and Spearo Staff Writers and Writers. If you are interested in any of these positions please email or PM me.
OK folks! I'm pleased to announce that we've appointed Harold Gibson (AKA Fuzz from the forums) as the new Spearo Editor for DeeperBlue.net.

He'll be working with me and Malcolm James (the managing editor) over the coming few weeks to setup the Spearfishing Section on the DeeperBlue.net main website.

We're now looking for Staff Writers and Writers to join the team. If you're interested please PM or email me at stephan.whelan@deeperblue.net

So - a HUGE welcome to Fuzz!
Hi Everyone,

Due to unforseen circumstances we no longer have a Spearfishing Section Editor.

We are now actively looking for a Spearfishing Editor to help build and manage the Spearfishing Section on the main site. If you think you'd like to be a part of the dynamic team and manage a section on the site then please apply directly to me at stephan.whelan@deeperblue.net
I'm not a spear fisher, but I like to try some day.

I often like to read about spearfishing, and if it would be on a seperate forum I don't know if still would, because the subjects attract me most of the time.

The other thing is that freedivers an spearfishers can learn a lot from eachother, and seperating the small community into two would not help.

Furthermore spearfishermen and freedivers have often a different view, being on one forum helps understanding each other greatly.

If it does become seperate, I hope I can still see the 10 active topics on the main page, so I can drop by if I see an intresting subject.

Love, peace and water!
we are still in the same forum KARS, we can read and post in both section. There is no border in between, but seperating the sections makes the forum more tidy:)

I think you may have mis-understood. There is already a Spearfishing section on the forums (in fact you are in it already!). What I am talking about is our editorial section on the main site http://www.deeperblue.net

We require an editor to build and manage the Spearfishing Editorial content :D
Ok, then it's fine with me, thankt for the explinations!
