This is taught in all Fii courses.
We've done this so many times before that I hesitate to even get into it again, that advice is totally unrealistic for a freedive spearfisherman in a coastal California kelp bed. We don't do it, and its useless to preach at us. All that is useful is to discuss how to minimize the risk. Otherwise you are pissing up a rope.
