This is my dive mask (with gopro mount):
These are my carbon fiber dive fins:
Great book about learning how to spearfish:
Amazing book about freediving, the ocean, and our connection to these things as humans:
Interesting read on how it’s scientifically proven that being near, in, on or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected, and better at what you do:
This book is all about big fish, where to find them, and how to spear them. Written by a spearfishing OG, it will inspire you to explore the world, searching for big fish:
William Trubridge can dive to over 100 meters (330 feet) on a single breath of air, without wearing fins. This well-written autobiography explores his journey to become one of the deepest diving humans in the history of the world, and also helps show the potential that we all have inside of ourselves to dive deep, if we practice:
Finally, this book tells a tragic tale of an extremely talented freediver and how dangerous this sport can be, if not practiced safely:
***If you want to learn how to freedive or spearfish, DO NOT TRY IT ALONE. I recommend signing up for a freediving course to learn how to dive safely and find a buddy do dive with 🤙🤙******

  • The fact you referenced The Vegan Teacher made you lose all credibility and respect. Not that you had any from me from the start. Animals are food. As intended by God. Plants are the foods for animals. As intended by God. It’s in the Bible. If you don’t believe in the Bible. It’s scientifically proven. Either way, animals are food. The End!!!

  • While I agree with everything you say, none of those arguements justify going out an hunt your food. Yes, it is better than commercial fishing.l, but you know what's even better? Not eating fish. Yes humans have been eating meat and fish for thousands ofyears. We've also been killing, raping and robbing eachother for thousands of years. Does that mean we should continue with all of that? Yes, other animals eat other animals. They also kill, rape and murder eachothers children. Should we start doing that too? I don't think we should take other animals as an example. Yes, hunting might give you satisfaction. A pedosexual gets satisfaction from raping a child. Is that a good enough reason for us to allow him to hurt the child? We are human, we are extremely smart, and we have a choice to make. We're not at the mercy of nature anymore, we can choose not to kill an animal.

    • @Phantom Carnage So what? Space is inhabitable, but we still find ways to live there. We are omnivores (although we might have transcended from frugivores), but we have the ability to survive on plants only. Who cares about what we are. Why don't we care about what we are able to do. And do me a favour and stop with your weird questions, just get to the point. I just got my master degree in medicine. I know what Homo Sapiens are.

    • @J Smit I never said that what I do is natural . I am just saying that humans are omnivores . And do you now what Homo sapiens are ?

    • @Phantom Carnage We might not be built te be vegan. We can have a whole separate discussion about that. But even if we weren't built to be vegan. If with the help of one single supplement we can be, than why won't we? What's the problem with that? I'm not talking about Neanderthal, I'm talking about us, right now, in 2021. I'm a 10000% sure that 99% of what you eat and do in a day is not natural. Even the way you take a shit. So why is taking a supplement the one "non-natural" thing you are objecting to?

      J SmitJ Smit22 hours ago
    • @Milky Way Cannibalism? You are completely missing the point bud. Of course hunting animals is not the same as raping another human. But I'm not comparing them. 😂 I'm saying the argument of comparing humans to animals is inherently bad. You can't just pick one characteristic and call it a day. I'm giving up. I don't think I can make it any easier for you. But thank you for trying mate

      J SmitJ Smit22 hours ago
    • @J Smit no ,my point is that you need pills because we aren’t built to be vegan we are omnivores and unless we evolve to become a herbivore , We are omnivores and we don’t really have a Choice about being vegan , vegetarian or any other stuff . And the point you made about „it’s not possible to be natural“ the tell me how did the Neanderthals and early Homo sapiens survive ?

  • Every time the vegan teacher publishes a new video or any preachy vegan say some stupid shit to me I go into the field and kill something. Sometimes its a squirrel or a rat, other times its a bird, others its a feral hog or a even the occasional deer.

  • How is spear fishing more sustainable than commercial fishing? You’re feeding what? One or Two people? Commercial fishing feeds a billion people a day. Imagine a billion people jumping in the water every day to spearfish. And they wouldn’t be going where commercial fishing boats are going, they’re going to be at places that are easily accessible just like you and trying to harvest fish that don’t have sustainable populations. You keep feeding yourself and I’ll be in Prince Edward Sound feeding the rest of the world.

  • It's just like any other hunting.. do it responsible and respectful and with the least amount of pain and it's okay with the hunting gods.. and most people.. only get what you need to eat and JJ nothing more.. Don't do it just to see how many you can kill in a day.. that's an asshole.

  • Yeah commercial fishing is cruel but we can’t just have everyone spearfish for food because there are so many people, so even though that farming animals is cruel it is necessary for everybody to have a happier life because I think I’m speaking for everyone when I say sushi taste better than salad. It’s just a matter of we are at the top of the food chain. Also this is just my personal opinion so comment what you think because everyone has different opinions.

And on your but of "what if some alien did it to you" Can't you say the same about plants? Their living things and by your logic you shouldn't eat them so having said that what would you eat?
