Title: South American Spearfishing Forums?
Post by: IceColdChuck on August 20, 2014, 11:10:57 PM
Anybody know of any Spearfishing forums specific to South America, specifically Argentina if possible. I would really like to plan a trip to Patagonia next year and hook up with local divers but all I can find on the internet when I search pescasub or cazasub are forums based in Spain (there are some great posts on those forums about spearfishing Argentina). It may be that those are the forums to ask around on, but I thought I'd put it out here first and see if anyone has any intel or ideas on how to go about doing this research. Thoughts?

Have you talked to the people organizing the spearfishing world championship in Peru? Scubaboard may be a start, at least for dive charters. Or reach out to Kimi Werner.

That link isn't working for me, no I have not talked to the organizers of the world championship, I imagine they're busy with things. I found this post on a Spanish forum, lot of great info about spearfishing in Patagonia

Whenever I Google anything for pescasub argentina, there are a bunch of YouTube videos that come up all made by one guy, I may just message him and see if he or anyone he knows would like to go out, but since this trip is still many months away I'll wait until things are a little more firm before I start bothering local divers. For now I'm just doing recon.
