Getting ready to fish

Not every day in Hawaii brings waves. On days when the current was slack and the ocean flat, we would spearfish. Often over the same reefs we surfed when a swell was present.

Spearfishing without a wetsuit is a calorie hungry beast akin to arctic exploration. Chilled and hungry, our hunt was usually followed by a communal BBQ. We would always invite our friends and family to share in the fruits of our labors.

Cleaning the FishThe Catch

I sometimes think these generous invitations to our non-diving friends were actually a selfish excuse to stay in the water longer and shoot more fish. Our ethos was nothing goes in the freezer. Take only what we could consume in a day, as tomorrow we would be in the water again.  --- Dave Chun
