Is spearfishing the ultimate sport? It’s a lot like hunting but if you breathe at the wrong time you die. Plain and simple. Adding to that, it’s not like death by a freak accident, but death because you wanted some oxygen.
Having dabbled with a lot of water sports from a young age and being very active in probably the highest impact one of them all (skimboarding), we are now getting somewhat serious about this spearfishing thing. I don’t like fishing on a regular basis. It’s too slow, smelly and well……… Boring.
Spearing fish is the opposite. It’s full of action, it’s one hell of a physical and mental challenge and you get to see things most people won’t. Like sharks, you get pretty up close and personal with these alleged man killers.
I got my full kit late last year and figured it was time. Time to test myself, my rig (below) and my friends haha.
With a little bit of coverage on OXS TV already I just wanted to drop this little clip here and tell you what is up. My addictive personality will take this somewhere amazing, as well as a waterproof housing for the A6000, so we can cover all the action with some serious quality.
I really want to shoot some high quality stills from the bottom so I’ll be working on that shortly.
Auckland Anniversary seems to always be an absolute scorcher of a weekend. I vlogged the three days with activities such as spearfishing, wedding shoots and skimboarding all in the mix! Check the videos below
Now this was one of those trips that you shouldn’t really go on. So close to Christmas, a lot happening (including my unofficial Christmas team event) and short notice but hey…. I’d been waiting for this forecast for some time and excuses are for excuse makers.
