    Hi Joe, a great and informative video, like all your videos. I'm just getting into spearfishing been doing it a year or so. Have been borrowing a friends old spear wetsuit. But going to invest in a new suit that fits me better. I'm diving south Cornwall so would love to know your thoughts on this…What thickness suit would you recommend for spearfishing through most of the year. 5mm or 7mm.? And is it worth getting a camo colour or is black not a issue? Big thanks

  10. Dominic Barbas says

    Really good tips. Thanks

  11. Christopher Smith says

    Thanks for the tips Joe. Regarding your Epsealon weight vest, how much weight and what type of weights fit in it? Is it easy to ditch if you needed to in an emergency? Cheers.

  12. Rich Challis says

    What carbon fins are you using Joe? I am looking to upgrade and trying to get some comparison of stiffness between brands. I was looking at the omer carbon stingrays, but then heard they are softer than other brands, so I am unsure now.

  13. Carl Christell says

    Could you do a video about your wetsuite please

  14. Teo Tsakiris says

    Try to put your belt more downwards.
    You shouldn't wear the belt so high on your waist.
    In long terms, waist problems will appear to you.
    Try under the bones you have, on your left and right of your belly and sometimes even lower. It depends on how shallow or deep you want to hunt.

    Great stuff! Thanks

    Divers watch/computer is paramount with a successful dive ,Great advise there,keep it up !

  17. Dinesh Thirupuvanarajah says

    Awesome video mate. Do you recommend soft carbon fins for beginners or medium? Also if I want to start with shallow diving, is a 90cm gun too long? Preferably wouldn't want to buy again so want to get the right gun to start with. Any recommendation appreciated. 🙂

  18. BurninatorTheTrogdor says

    If you get a weight vest make sure to get one with a ball at the back and not a clasp. It's really hard to ditch your belt with a clasp. They can be great just make sure you and your buddy know how to ditch. For the pissette you can get a one way check valve instead of the neoprene. You only have to make a small hole and they work really well.
