I went to Boston Sea Rover's ,the Sporasub Freedive Clinic this Saturday. Picked up some really good tips and it was good to see everyone. I'm looking forward to a good season. I will be on midnights and plan on working every inch of the southcoast!

The US National Champion Team was all there (John Murphy, Dave Hochman and John Warnock). Hochman did the presentation and the other two had some comments.

Sorry to leave you hanging...
Hanging flashers (lures with no hooks) on your float lines to attract fish.
Keeping a small profile when stalking a fish.
Use black bands so the fish see less when you shoot them.
Use a single flopper style (Tahitian) tip. I have a double flopper, so I'll just replace it and use it for a spare.
Keeping a spare band with you. (John Murphy keeps one around his neck so he doesn't have to go back to the boat for it.)
Making a tag line: Ten feet of mono and then floating poly rope to a small bouy to float the whole rig.
How to body string fish: A short piece of bungee and a three foot piece of braided line with a spike on the end. It runs from the back of you weightbelt, over your shoulder to your waist. String the fish, put the line over your shoulder and secure the spike. An alternative would be to run the stringer around your waist.
They reviewed equipment selection 101. Long blades, freediving suits, weights and belts, masks, snorkels.
Dave talked about keeping an efficient profile diving down and when swimming.

Wow, sounds like a good class and similar to the one David Sipperly (sp ?) gave at a LDS last summer. I learned alot from that class.
