I know here is the Riffe dealer.Probably you don`t know anything about god damned politics here. There is two nationality in island and it split into two region.We are not allowed to pass other side just like the border line between two country and the Riffe dealer is in the other side:waterwork .I want very much to see Riffe guns but i can`t.With car it is just one hour away to me.

hi Iyadiver

Coral sea is as it says the Coral Sea of queensland first the vis in the movie is awsome way over 100ft in one place when they go blue water hunting, guns used are all Piccasos, Divers are australian champ rob torreli, Andy Ruddock, Arnie Piccoli all are awsome divers and hunt at unbelivebale dpths for god knows how long fish include all the tropical reef species such as coral trout, job fish etc then they also spear some good size dog tooth tuna, and one wahoo there is footage of Ian puckerige swimming his 83kg world record dog tooth tuna back to the boat, few stone shots on doggies and barracuda at a good range, if you have any other specific questions just ask.

Freediving Vanuatu, divers are Chris Cartwright, Steve Crabtree, vis is again awsome, guns used are one huge Tuna gun wooden with 5 rubbers and slip tip and all that, the other is just a long wooden gun with 2 bands, Main fish targeted is Dog tooth tuna they shoot a few good ones Chris also gets the spear into a 70kg monster but in pulls his floats and bungees under and breaks the 600lb line on the reef 50m below, other fish are a few wahoo, job fish and 2 missed shots a sailfish, They dive on the fads , monument rock and a bommie that is 80ft down Steve swims down and waits on the bottom do these guys have gills, again any specific questions just ask

cheers

Thanks A Lot Andrew,

The Vanuatu sure sounds damn exciting. So comforting to know I am throwing my hard earned currency-converted-to-expensive -USDollars for some good action footage.

L'Agguato Profondo di Dapiran is the best spearfishing video I have ever seen period.

Is L'aguatto Profondo 2 out? "la vendetta?" I saw a trailer for it just now... was wondering. Dapiran is a smooth diver with great bottom times, attacking some of the hardest fish! Great spearo and cameraman on the job!!

I admit that I haven't seen most of the videos being discussed here but they sound like shots of really advanced spearos doing really advanced spearing. The only one I have seen is Terry Maas' and that makes me think that they are for moderately advanced spearos with ambition and beginners with dreams. What about those of us still standing on the beach (waiting for the rain to quit! :vangry)? I read the announcement of Dale's Gone to Baja and bought it 'cause it seemed aimed at me, the middle-aged ignorant. If any of you out there are in the same catagory, even if not middle-aged, I recommend it. It isn't Stephan Spielberg, technically, and you can see that it was shot by divers with a camera rather than cameramen with flippers. No problem. I can relate better that way, anywho. The interview with Jay Riffe and his (yummy!) daughter are straightforward and honest, look-you-in-the-eye kind of things. The dive sequences make it look possible to anybody in normal health and the pictures of cooking fish leave drool all over the couch. If you're already good at the sport, you don't need this one (unless you just like looking at Julie) but I've run through it more than once already and will again (at least until the rain stops :vangry)

Another great and very inspiring movie is: Pedro Carbonell - Un campeon en Galicia.
The movie shows a hunting trip of Pedro Carbonell and a friend of his, a guy who has lost his leg in an accident but still dives regularly and with great success. The way he dives and shoots over 5 kilo sea basses despite his handicap is reaaaaaly impressive. Pedro is also great though, I have never seen anyone shooting so fast without aiming for a second! Looks like a western movie:)
Great stuff!!!

I have the new one "Gone to Baja" as well and I would recommend it to someone thats just started or hasnt yet started, or maybe is looking to go on one of Gone to Bajas trips. Otherwise I personally didnt think it was that good; again my opinion.

Overall though, the best vid Ive seen is "Blue, spearfishing the Californias", some really nice footage giving me dreams of visiting Cali oneday for myself; but until then my Wyoming freshwater hunting will suit just fine.

Any Q's shoot me a pm.

Cheers,
Justin

I agree with Justin about "Blue - spearfishing the Californias". Of the half dozen spearfishing shows I have seen Vanuatu, coral sea, searching, gone to baja, breaking the barrier, blue - it is by far the best movie I have seen. It is available through various online vendors. I found myself re-watching it over again several times. I hope those guys in No. Cali make another movie like that one.

The Spearfishing 101 video is more of an instructional video, it is designed for the first timer or no timer. We are in the process of shooting another video and Julie Riffe will be in it.

It will be on our expdition for the world record Lepoard grouper in Baja.

As our production budgets get bigger so will the action. Thanks to all of you out there that have checked out our project, and for your reviews.

Sounds great GTB. Your video 101 was well done. Like you said, it was made for the first timer. I look forward to your next videos.

Watch Victor Abellan's "Al Acecho"

Its simply awesome. Extreme dentex hunting with a few AJ ang grouper included.

All using the aspetto and aguatto (ambush) technique. Victor is the strongest disciple of superjedi Dapiran.

Murat: Aguatto profondo cameraman was Sheilo Pisciottu. His apnea is incredible. And his camera skills even better. Watch "Sogni Blu" where he films in apnea in nature reserves around italy. Spectacular images of dentex, groupers, barracudas, monster AJ and tunas .
