Mmm mmm

Get your ears tickled by the best export New Zealand’s ever given the world. Russell Crowe eat your heart out. I would dive to my responsible maximum with Shrek watching my booties descend into the abyss any day of the week. Everything on this podcast is just so actionable. So so actionable.. Loved the recent WA episode, you could tell you were in the motherland by the delightful sound of cans getting cracked open in the background the whole way through. Thanks Isaac for all the work you put in, and the awesome actionable content. Did I mention how actionable the content is… anyway, someone buy this man a beer! Cheers mate!

Best podcast a must listen for all spearos!

As the partner of a mad keen spearo I have absolutely loved listening to this podcast and learning all things spearfishing. It’s given me so many tools to support Tim in the water, have a better understanding of risks which lead to doing a free diving course to feel more comfortable again and has been the best binge listen over the last 6 weeks on the road. Thanks a heap Shrek keep it up ✌🏻
