I came to kayaking by way of spearfishing and freediving. I have been a waterman all my life, kayaking is just one more extension of my passion for all things salt water. For the last 12 years, I had a power boat for diving… I decided to sell my boat and get a kayak, my new adventure.
Here is the cool thing… I got the kayak solely as a mode of transport that gave me an upper body workout, but I have found I love paddling. I live way down in Baja Sur, Mexico… no coaches here… I am learning what I can from YouTube and other internet resources including this great Forum!
There is very little information around the internet for kayak spearfishing, and virtually all by spearfisherman who use a kayak. What about kayakers who also enjoy spearfishing and/or freediving? This is a real specialty activity, and it is WILD good fun. I would very much appreciate it if Paddling.com would open a sub-forum for Kayakers who spearfish/freedive. If you do, I will spread the word on all the spearfishing & freediving forums… there is a thirst for information and community in this specialty.
