Yeah im not really too worried about sharks. I know they are there and it is a risk.. but so is getting swamped by a rogue wave or more likely hit by a jet ski.

There are multiple videos of Great Whites swimming near surfers at Tuncurry beach, which is probably less than a kilometer from where i used to spearfish.
The only thing better than serenity is a two stroke at full throttle!

Been curious about taking up spearfishing since I like both snorkelling and fishing.

Wondering if anyone could provide any recommendations for
- good equipment to purchase as a beginner
- safe places for initial dives (thinking Mt Martha)
- places that'll do lessons/courses
Diving Monday cape schank for crays, abs and whatevers dumb enough to swim in front of my spear

If you want to join there will be around 4 of us if that adds a bit of comfort for you
