Sean Lentini ,

Entertaining and informational

This podcast gets me through work everyday. Since I started listening I have bought all my gear and started diving. Can’t wait until I bring home my first fish. Keep making episodes please!!!!

surphkid11 ,

Love it! More Hawaii!

Some great info and discussions. Love the banter. Can you get more guys from hawaii to talk about spearfishing here?

Chambek ,

I really enjoy this podcast. Learned a lot!

I started spearfishing in my early teens and got back into it when i moved back to maui as in my early 30’s thought wasnt really committed to technique. With the help of my mentor and this podcast i have started to sharpen my spearfishing skills and have been able to catch some pretty good fish.

I have learned a lot of technique and tricks as well. Learning loads about safety . Thanks fellas for all the great interviews and knowledge keep up the good work🤙🏽 aloha from maui
