Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Hello, I'm pretty new to spearboard. Just thought I would make it official and introduce myself! I love reading all of the great threads and learning more about this incredible sport. I grew up in Michigan and never spearfished or dived. My husband (a.s.alvarez) grew up in Miami and has been spearfishing since he was a kid. He started to teach me a little bit, and when he saw that I was really interested in spearfishing, he suggested that we take the PFI freediving course. The rest is history! I'm just having a great time learning how to stalk, stone, and cook 'em up!

New lurker signing on..

Hello all, Just got my privileges to post on the board. My name is Blaine, and I currently reside in Lewiston, CA (2 hours from Humboldt)I have a little bit of experience spear fishing down in Loreto Baja, MX for 10 days two years ago!! I had a ton of fun and can't wait to try it again here on the North Coast of CA (Mendocino/Humboldt Co.) Will be in Sacramento tomorrow for a work conference but I plan on stopping by the free dive shop to look at their selection of open cell suits. It's still a tossup for me if I should get open cell or just stick with closed cell for its durability and longevity. Hoping to have a gun and suit by April 1st. I can use my old scuba fins for the meantime I recon until the wife lets me invest in some new ones. She just doesn't understand that I really need all this gear.......

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Howdy, new to spearboard but not to forums. I'm a long time member on some F150 forums but they are rather lacking on a diving crowd. Found this place just after joining scubaboard.com but I can tell I like this one more already.

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Joined ****************** awhile back and saw references to this site...I LIKE IT! Been diving for years, but just got all my gear rounded up to start spearfishing. I live in TN, so won't have many opportunities, but planning for several trips to the panhandle to learn how to shoot a fish and snatch a bug!!

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Well I had signed up but never posted. Glad I finally decided to stop lurking and post. Hopefully I can give back because I've taken a lot of knowledge off here believe it or not.

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Hi everyone, I took a haitus from diving to get used to being a new mom. My boy is three now and I'm looking to get us both in the water. I'm in Laurence Harbor but frequent the Shark River for backbay diving. Looking forward to participating in this board.

Welcome back to Spearboard Tina!

Motherhood is so amazing and you are to be commended for that dedication.

I see you joined in 2006 and made just two posts.

We have plenty of lady shooters here and look forward to your postings.

Please share your experiences of getting back into the sport and introducing your son to it.

Tony

My boy is 3 too. check this mask out:

Aqua Sphere Sphera toddler swim mask:

http://www.isnorkel.com/product/424/...m-snorkel-mask

Amazon.com: Aqua Sphere Sphera toddler swim & snorkel mask: Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: Aqua Sphere Sphera toddler swim & snorkel mask: Sports & Outdoors

Apparently everyone's out of them right now, but maybe they'll come back in stock.

This mask has a nice silicone skirt and a polycarbonate lens. The lens is flexible, which enables the mask to bend and seal around very small faces.

Highly recommended!

Also, another trick I use - I heard this from a boat captain in West Palm Beach. Get your kid a light adult snorkel. The larger snorkel mouthpiece is easier for them to hold in their mouth, because it's just wedged in there and it automatically seals. they don't have to bite down or think about keeping their lips closed.

Good luck!

Re: Welcome Lurkers!

Just found out about spearfishing and totally stoked to get into it. Lived in San Diego my whole life and never knew spearfishing existed. Looking forward to trying my hand at it and hopefully putting some dinner on the table
