Mediterranean spearfishing…Does it sound familiar to you? Crazy guys chasing shadows in ear-crushing depths?
Partially true. What is true is that the scarcity and the alertness of (very clever) fish push spearos to implement new techniques and serious tactics into their spearfishing. Most professionals wouldn’t share their secrets but is it really the way to go? I don’t think so.
Deep Spearfishing Encyclopedia (DSE) is a series which aims to unveil some specifics of deep underwater action. It features 5 topics which I find crucial for your underwater progress. Through DSE I tried to present a broad yet detailed view on topics like Relaxation, Patience, Awareness and Respect.
What is the proper breathing for spearfishing? Can I learn to hunt at 30 meters? Do I shoot as much as I can? Do I dive alone?
Deep Spearfishing Encyclopedia is not there to provide much answers, rather to motivate viewers to ask questions and seek more knowledge. Constant development is the key to success.
Every episode is presented in a different language: English, Russian, Italian, Turkish and Greek; but the subtitles are always available in English, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Greek and Arabic.
About the time to proceed to the first episode, shall we?
Part one: Relaxation
Before you get fully immersed into the action, here is a short introduction to the series.
On our first journey we will focus on Relaxation – a crucial element of freediving/spearfishing.
Why is it important? How do you achieve a complete relaxation of your body and mind? How do you incorporate those into your diving? What should be the most efficient body position? How to conserve the precious oxygen while you are down there? How should you surface?
That is it for the first part, but we will see you in just a bit for the 2nd part of the Deep Spearfishing Encyclopedia.
Whilst you wait, make sure you dive safe – a good partner will not only help you shoot better fish but will also help you fix great BBQs.
