Online Spearfishing Mentorship Program

I quite often get queeries about my online spearfishing mentorship program especially this year as it is getting more well known. This is how it works:
It is a 52 week course with one lesson per week. Why one lesson per week? Well I could pour all the info onto the student in one shot and drown him - no good - it is better to focus more attention onto a topic and master it properly and even get a chance to try it in practice before flying into the next theory topic.
Perhaps and even more important reason is that one part of the mentorship addresses Spearo Mindset. To me that is the most important part. With the right mindest the rest falls into place - not always smoothly but it happens. One cannot easly change a mindset so it happens bit by bit through out the lessons.

Timing - students can start at any stage I designed it to allow flexibility. These are the delights of the online world.

Who is it for?
Any spearo at any level. The greatest benfit is for spearos who have a little experience - over the next year they get plenty of data and insights as I have seen and learned. Experience spearos will obviously learn less, however, over 1700-1800 dives I have been observant and tried lots of experiments - these results can give an experienced spearo a certain edge that he lacked before.

So now I suppose you want a table of contents.
OK, Well here it is.

Over the last 40 weeks I have really enjoyed mys spearfishing outings - one reason is that I dive with due regard for my sudents and am always looking for new ways o teach and put across topics - I have learned a lot in the process too.

A more detailed breakdown of all lessons exists only in my thoughts and will become available over the next few months.
