Post by: sava on August 13, 2009, 03:47:28 PM
Guys,

The Picasso Nor Cal tournament is coming up on us pretty quickly. It will be held at Caspar Beach, Mendocino.  This year we will be giving away a lot of great prizes including carbon, plastic, and fiberglass fins. Yazbeck, Picasso, and Elite wetsuits along with masks, snorkels, weight belts, gloves, socks, and lots of spearguns. These items are just a small sample of what we will have with us. As with all of our tournaments, many of you will go home with great prizes.

We have a group campsite reserved as Caspar, so Saturday night feel free to stop by and say hello. The Freediveshop staff will be there hanging out, so come out and party with us.

You can register and read more about our tournament at:
