If you are reading this text, it means that you are already familiar with the world of spearfishing. You are also familiar with the equipment that is needed and you have the experience, but you want more! The most important thing is that we strive for better, so let’s go…
Spearfishing is like “playing a guitar”, don’t expect wonders if you have spearfished 5-6 times.You will not become a top spearfisher in just a few dives, but with each new one, you’ll become more comfortable underwater. The idea that for spearfishing you must have excellent breath-holding skills and that you have to dive deep to catch trophies – is wrong! The most important thing in spearfishing is technique, of course good freediving skills help, but are not crucial. Also, with the modern technique of sneaking (in the Adriatic sea), the catch depends more on the spearfisher than on the fish.
For this reason, we have the INTERCEPTOR spearfishing academy, led by Taras, an experienced spearfisher who will share his techniques, i.e. instruct and practice with you, but you’ll also have the opportunity to hunt with the INTERCEPTOR speargun. The courses are individual, each participant has different prior knowledge and experience in underwater hunting, therefore the course is individual, i.e. it is tailored to each participant. The courses are held in the Adriatic sea. The approach is friendly, Taras hunts together with the participants, but also after completing the course. Participants almost always become friends with Taras, and are happy to continue hunting with him, socialize and exchange experiences about spearfishing.
Apart from technique, the most important spearfishing tool is the speargun. Is your speargun accurate? What’s its effective range? Do you feel excess recoil when you shoot? Is it heavy and unbalanced in the hand underwater? If you are not satisfied with your speargun, it is INTERCEPTOR spearguns (high end spearguns) that develop spearguns that would meet all the above criteria. Anyone who has shot INTERCEPTOR spearguns once, will never go back.
