@davidochoapt : "There’s fish you can target with hard work and there’s fish you can only hope to come across one or two times in life. This was one of them. Kingfish has always been one of those iconic fish for me and hunting them was one of the main reasons to come to New Zealand.⠀ ⠀ A few days ago I was invited to do a presentation of Agua Negra by @angeaoteroa at the Sons of Tangaroa. It was one of the coolest meetings I’ve been to and that’s what lead me and @daviedupav to dive the area with some local legends.⠀ ⠀ The conditions were as good as they get on this crazy pinnacle that dropped down vertical into more than 100m. We dove it for a few hours filming and shooting some decent fish in strong current until everyone was chilling on the boat. I decided to swap the camera for the gun and started diving the drop alone. There was tons of kingies but nothing that stood out. My goal was just to shoot a fish over 20kg.⠀ ⠀ I dove the up current side of the drop and quickly got surrounded by a lot of bait and stingrays. A few small kingies swam by and then a good one came in from my right , just behind the ledge. As I lined up on this fish another one came just behind him. A much bigger one. The fish looked a bit nervous and I barely aimed before shooting, a good holding shot but far from stoning it!⠀ As I got to the surface my reel was almost spooled but even though the fish was pulling hard, it felt like I could manage it. That’s when it really took off! ⠀ The next chain of events were some of the most intense I've experienced spearfishing but unfortunately I don't have enough room to post it here so I'm making a blog entry on my website (www.davidochoa.net) for those who would like to read the whole thing. You can also check my FB. We also got everything on video that should come out soon.⠀ ⠀ Thank you so much @bradley.lang.969 for being a great host and for putting us on the fish. @daviedupav for all the shots and @angeaotearoa for putting up with us."⠀ .⠀ #kingfish #yellowtail #kingie #sustainability #spearfishing #speargun #spearing #freediving #freedive #freediver #underwaterworld #pescasub #diver #uwphotography #pescasub #pescasubmarina #scubadiving #apnea

His words, not ours!!! Thanks for the review @__behindthemask__ !⠀ "6°C water temperature, @dadali27 taking a break from the Orcas, checking her shots! ... only possible with a 7mm custom-made freediving wetsuit from @hecsaquatic. That suit easily kept us warm for 5 hours out in the fjords of northern Norway in November. You can call that advertising, but that's our very own honest opinion anyways ;-)"⠀ .⠀ #orcanorway #nauticam #oms #hecsaquatics #behindthemask #welovediving #oceanlovers #saltnomads #nature #freediving #saltlife #epic #oceans #freediving #orca #norway #scuba #underwaterphotography #underwatervideography #travel #wildlife_photography #wildlife_shots #uwphotography #photooftheday #paditv "
“When we connect with the wild, we remember we ARE the wild. So what are we doing trying to tame ourselves all the time? Who are we doing it for? And who will we become if we lose the wildness that makes each of us unique and our societies diverse?” - Nathan Scolaro⠀ 📷 @amberandfriendsphotography of @thelifeofrileynz ⠀ .⠀ #bluesharks #blueshark #saveoursharks#sharks #freediving #freedive #freediver #saltlife #diver #divingsuit #divinglife #camoflauge #pescasub #scubadive #underwatershots #deepsea #underwaterpics #underwaterlife #apnea #underwaterphotography #scubalife #underwaterworld #underwaterphoto #diver #uwphotography #sharkweek #sharkweek2019 @discoversharks @sharks @sharksdaily @sharksentinels @oceanskeepers @doseofsharks
"This clip is me, up close and personal with a blue shark, giving it a treat for being such a good player. Note the clear visual recognition of food, pretty good for the usually, non visual hunter. Do not try to engage or feed sharks without extensive experience and ensuring habituation is controlled for, in this case being that it is a highly migratory animal likely to never be encountered again".⠀ Via @thelifeofrileynz ⠀ .⠀ #bluesharks #blueshark #saveoursharks#sharks #freediving #freedive #freediver #saltlife #diver #divingsuit #divinglife #camoflauge #pescasub #scubadive #underwatershots #deepsea #underwaterpics #underwaterlife #apnea #underwaterphotography #scubalife #underwaterworld #underwaterphoto #diver #uwphotography #sharkweek #sharkweek2019 @discoversharks @sharks @sharksdaily @sharksentinels @oceanskeepers @doseofsharks
