Custom Elios 5mm wetsuit for sale. I got it lined with extra-stretchy lycra on the inside so it wouldn't weld together in my sportube when traveling. You do not need lube to put this suit on, which...

Re: Broken Carbon Fiber Blade

Ouch. Overhead bin or checked?

In any event, I would probably cut it straight across and sand down the edge. I would use regular sandpaper instead of a Dremel to keep it from heating up too much....

Re: shark shield

I don’t wear one, but a lot of my friends do. Personally I think it’s a waste of money and a huge annoyance. Maybe I’d feel differently if I had another run-in with a GWS, but the only thing my...

Wtb 3mm freediving suit

Looking for a cheap-ish 3mm freediving suit that I can use for travel. Would also consider 1.5mm or 2mm as long as it’s 2pc with integrated hood. I’m 6’1” and ~185lbs. I wear either a 40 long or a 42...

Re: Tool to cut yourself out of kelp quickly?

Different strokes for different folks, I guess. The Spydie definitely isn’t marketed as a dive knife, but that kind of begs the question, what is it that makes any given knife a “dive knife”? As far...

Re: Tool to cut yourself out of kelp quickly?

A couple things worth considering: First, giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) snaps really easily if you bend it over on itself. Provided you pay attention to your surroundings and don’t spin around in...

Re: Question on regulator and BCD

+1. If you stick with SCUBA long enough you’re almost definitely going to want a backplate bc, and if you don’t stick with it a backplate will have a better resale value (at least in my experience)....

Re: Newbie question about shorter spearguns

To add on to this, if you decide to dive without a float (definitely my preference if i’m going to be in and out of kelp) and you’re either weaving through kelp or diving in a current, you’ll want a...

Re: Newbie question about shorter spearguns

Some guys up in my neck of the woods (Monterey/Carmel) regularly shoot big sheephead with smaller guns, mostly in the 70-80cm range. You just have to close the distance. If you can force it to hole...

Subcraft F400 fins (medium) in Pathos 44/46

Subcraft F400 fins, medium stiffness in Pathos 44/46. For those new to Pathos, I wear a size 11 in Vans, and these fit comfortably (maybe a hair loose) with a 3mm sock.

I'm told these are a touch...

Re: Banks board advice needed

Re: Banks board advice needed

I have one of the first generation boards that I use mostly for abalone diving (but also occasionally for spearfishing) in NorCal. I honestly flop back and forth on whether it's worth it to me to...

Re: Anyone want to spear in NorCal?

I'm in the Bay Area (Palo Alto) and am always happy to run north or south. The next month is a little crazy, but usually I could swing once or twice a month.

Re: CA does finfish mean all finfish

The short answer to your question is yes, if it just says "fin fish" you can take all fin fish. DFW just uses the other two subcategories (1) to allow or restrict take in areas where they don't want...
