Spearfishing Nationals 2021. What a cool experience! Javier Verdaguer and I teamed up and agreed to give it our all. Definitely the hardest I have ever pushed my self diving. We dove 60 to 70 feet all day in 3 to 5 foot seas. We didn't have a big boat and we didn't have alot of numbers marked. Thank you Scott Turgeon for convincing me to compete! Scott did a hell of a job putting this tournament together, getting sponsors, and finding competiters. Congratulations to the top team Mike Graff , Matthew Warner , and Mirco Zanella. You guys killed it! Congrats to Mikhail for top mens individual! Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me it means alot! Javier and I place top mixed team, top Female, and I placed 6th over all. Cant wait to make this youtube video! This fish was on a rubble pile in 60 feet. He was in a pipe and as soon as he started to turn I hit him!
