Video: How to Defog Mask

Good little video to show one technique on how to defog your mask. I’ve never done it this way but sounds like it works. How do you do yours? Whenever I get a new mask, I use toothpaste and wipe it on the inside of the lens of a new mask and then wash it back off with warm fresh water and never have any issues with my masks. For my face, a Riffe Naida and a Mantis LV (low volume) are my top choice. Whats your technique for preparing...

At the end of your breath hold, write down your time and what you did for a breath up. We’ll...

How-to: Floatline vs. Reel

How-to: Floatline vs. Reel

Hey Cameron, I had a question about float lines and reels. Are reels a replacement for float lines? Is it much more safe to use a float line when beginning? I’m assuming you don’t use a reel and floatline together. Which is honestly best and safest. Thank you for the help. I appreciate it. -jake Jake thanks for the question. We’ve been discussing this for the past few weeks and it is an ongoing topic amongst spearos...

Reel or Floatline: or reel and Floatline?

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Spearblog/173623456007900 Interesting to see what people are saying about what set up they are using for Spearfishing. I am surprised that so many people actually use a combination reel and float line set up. Let us know how you are rigging this set up if it is what you are diving with. In Australia is the first place I’d seen guys hunting Bream down in Sydney diving with a small weight attached to their...

Sinus issues and diving question

Cameron, Great blog and post; Informative and well written as always. I wanted to pick your brain concerning our bodies and the strain on multiple dives per day.

Best White Seabass Videos

White Sea Bass This is one if not my favorite. After seeing so many fish speared on video I know I speak for many spearos in saying that it is the freeswimming fish that really get my blood flowing. There are some great clips in here and some huge croakers. Not a smart fish and the diver is very calm and doesn’t spook them. A lot to learn here. Great stuff. Another good one. This is pretty accurate for your typical WSB dive. If you...
