Re: California Spearos Lost and Found

Lost a GoPro Hero 3 with plastic articululating clamp at Monastery beach (Carmel Bay) New Years Eve (12/31/2017). Had it attached to my DSLR rig, apparently not securely clamped.

Update: found!

Re: Gopro mounting options

I prefer gun mounts. Can twist them to the side to film your buddies and get a lot more stability than with mask footage. It's also easy to tell when you're recording.

My favorites for metal...

Re: Lesson learned.

I haven't tried many different suits, but my girlfriend has a 7mm Mako suit and she *overheats* in the frigid upwelling of Monterey, California. :)

It's so good she's gonna get a 5mm next time!

Re: wetsuit related break out

My dive buddy and I have dealt with this and switched to Mako lube to see if we are just sensitive to something in all the conditioners we've tried.

Although I still had a small 'outbreak,' it's...

Re: Gun and suit question for SoCal spearing

I live in NorCal but dive in SoCal a few times a year (never spearfished down there, though - shoot with camera only).

You'll be fine regarding weight fluctuations if you buy a two-piece...

Re: 5 months over 10,000mi Spearfishing the Pacific Coast along North America

You can still access a lot of Big Sur if you just head in through King City, come down from the North or up from SLO. As a bonus, the campgrounds are largely empty right now.

Re: Who trains on Bicycles or other ways

Agreed. The above explained the why there is a steep rate of diminishing returns from non-specific training like cardio and strength.

I suggested baselines and metrics that would likely help a...

Re: Who trains on Bicycles or other ways

This is a complicated question and delves into many areas - for instance, we can consider overall fatigue, which we can consider in terms of generating energy to recover between dives. You've...

Some great visibility in NorCal

Recently picked up a DSLR housing, and finally took it for a spin. Left all my strobes and lights at home, and tried it out with just the housing. Camera got knocked out of M mode to some preset (P...

Re: Teak in SF/Monterey Bay Area?

I was just there yesterday, they have some beautiful wood, but it needs to be laminated and will end up being over $700 for just the wood of a gun. Figured I'd check around before committing to that.

Teak in SF/Monterey Bay Area?

Howdy,

My dive buddy and I have built a few NorCal hole popper guns and love them.

We got some new wood working equipment and are ready to build some SoCal blue water guns for this summer, but...

Re: Shore dives around Santa Barbara?

Coming from NorCal it was better than vis in places like Sonoma. Maybe 15'. We were very happy, but the waves made getting in/out quite an experience!

Re: SoCal leisure diving trip (from NorCal)

For another shore dive spot, was thinking of the Marine Protected area at Point Vicente, Palos Verdes. Is it pretty fishy?

I have only been to Shaw's Cove.

Re: Santa Cruz Scorpion Camping Apr 14th-16th

Ooh so envious, going to Scorpion next Thursday for only a day trip! First time, any tips? Was just going to dive around Scorpion and Little Scorpion with a camera. Is it worth swimming west?
