Did i miss anything?
Apologies if my previous message was a bit abrupt Savagebulldog. The good news is you won't be needing that. You will float like a cork, even weighted up. To such an extent that you wouldn't be able to dive without the aid of weights. Especially in a wetsuit designed for spearfishing - that is one with an open cell structure. 5 mm thick is the general suit that most people would probably go for in uk waters. Leaves you some other dough for things like neoprene socks, anti fog mask spray, a small knife, perhaps a torch if you fancy a stab at the night stuff..Floatation aid is literally just incase of emergencies. It doesnt inflate until you pull the cord
Its mostly sand and shingle so will definately take that into account.To get to your mark will you have to walk over rocks or sand/shingle? The reason I ask is that pocket foot fins are much better and more efficient than strap foot fins. So for these you would need socks as opposed to boots. Many people, if they have to walk over rock will wear a pair of the dreaded crocs, then strap them to their smb, then put the socks on and use the pocket foot fins. A decent pair of fins is actually a very good investment. In fact you can use pretty cheap stuff for most of your outfit, but I would pay most attention to a low volume quality mask, and some decent fins.
Im slightly bigger than that unfortunately but i will definately check out what ypu have
Fantastic, keep us informed how it goes and don't push yourself to hard, it's all about enjoyment with the bonus of a carefully selected meal.Thanks JonD.
Ive just signed up to a freediving course 10 miles up the road from me. Starts in a couple of weeks so will set up another post once that gets going
Enetered the water where I instantly spotted a large bream of around 1.5 kg, didn't take a shot as they are slow growing with that one being around 25-30 years old. Most anglers keep them.Have a good one.
That would be a dream
