Spearfishing and bodyboarding compliment each other perfectly. When there are waves you can surf, when it's flat you can dive.
Spearfishing will help you gain confidence in the surf through increasing your breath hold and lung capacity. It will also help to minimise a fear of sharks. It is perfect for when the waves are small or when you aren't able to travel to the best locations.
Pursuing both sports enables maximum time to be spent in the ocean. If you're like me, then this is important!
As with any extreme sport please seek some proper training and make sure you are aware of the rules and regulations in your area.
