As a young child, Jay Riffe was introduced to the underwater world off the beautiful coast of Southern California. This newfound interest in the ocean and its gifts would later fuel a passion to design spearguns that are powerful, maneuverable, and silent.
Big thank you to everyone involved in this project. Thank you Ryder Devoe for freezing in the kelp while diving in gear from 1960 Something. Thank you Kimi Werner for always reminding us the true value in eating what we catch. Thank you Ryan Moore & Captain Ed for such an epic time diving off Catalina. Last but not least thank you so much Julie and Jill Riffe for helping me sort through all this vintage footage while make this entire film possible. Your dad brought me to tears so many times with his amazing stories.
