Hi Everyone, I’m am very interested in starting my spearfishing journey but a little daunted at the same time. I live in Mumbles on the Gower Peninsula so I’m surrounded by beautiful coves and beaches. I’m nervous about trying this alown but can’t find any clubs or courses in the area. It would be great to find someone who could guide me though. Any thought and advice really welcome. I happy to travel if anyone knows of a clue in south wales. Andrew
Yes, be careful on Gower. I dived Oxwich Bay but the tide is powerful as soon as you turn the corner to leave bay. I broke a fin & tore my wet suit on rocks :(. Which stopped me diving around Mumbles, which was my main goal for the trip :/

BTW I knew a scuba diver/cave diver/climber who scuba dived from a boat off Gower. His anchor got stuck and he dived to free it - a near death experience I think :/. He survived to tell the tale :) but one of several epics I think ( as you might expect from cave diving! :( ).

BTW Most of my experience of Gower was from sea cliff climbing there, long before I took up spearfishing. ;)
BTW Gower is in the Bristol Channel, which I believe has the second largest tidal range in the world. Probably the reason that chap with the stuck anchor was so keen to free it quickly.

Be extra careful ;)
