This episode we chat to Brisbane local lad Beau Armstrong. He’s a regular dive buddy of mine and Turbo’s and we think he’s a top bloke. Beau has a great attitude, pays his way, does his share and always has a cheeky grin. He started out spearfishing about a year ago and while he’s been spearing, he’s also had a good crack at freediving. At the last freediving nationals competition held here in Brisbane, he posted a 155m dynamic and a 116m no-fins swim. Beau’s pony-tail often gets him in pub fights as he closely resembles an 80’s martial arts movie henchman – Download this episode for some laughs and great insights into spearfishing and having the right attitude.
