The physical aspect of this is amazing. This video also makes me just think about the gear we buy to dive and the money we spend getting things we need for a dive. Personaly I've probably spent over $500 getting the gear I need over the past 3 - 4 years as I've learned to dive and hunt. Then I see this guy just go out in a pair of shorts, some rickity ass goggles, a basic homemade speargun and he just whoops up on anything I do with all the "fancy" dive & hunting gear I have. Definately inspires me to work on my bottom time.

Only have 2 questions.

What does one do about goggle sqeeze with no way to equalize?

How bad could this guy clean out a reef with just a pair of decent dive fins?
Dad, what's for dinner?

Wookie steaks

Are they good?

Ehhh, they're a little Chewy.

This guy is definitely a badass, but keep in mind that the water there is probably warm enough that nobody would need or want a wetsuit. The goggles thing puzzles me - I thought goggles would make your eyes pop out of your head or something. I was a little disappointed to see him shoot that tiny little fish after all that effort - I was hoping for a nice snapper or something.

Anyway, if I could dive half as well as this guy, I'd be pulling limits of 10s regularly!

he has probably been diving since birth, but if you look at his goggles when he comes up they look like they are pushing on his eyes,ouch!!
