Interview with Addrianna Reitenbach

This interview with Addrianna Reitenbach comes from a recommendation from Eric Anderson.

“Hey Shrek! Wanted to connect you with Addrianna who is spearheading the up-and-coming dive community SoCal Dive Babes (IG: @socaldivebabes). This group is all about building a solid dive community and providing mentorship to women divers who want to get into spearfishing. We’ve been chatting a bit on spearing and watching their trips to Baja and local waters, fundraisers, beach events, underwater pumpkin target shooting, hanging out with Julie Riffe…I thought it would make a great interview. Always stoked to hear more stories in the spearing community and this sounds like a good one. You know I’m a fan of the Pcast, so keep it coming brotha!” – Eric Anderson

Some of the highlights are; ‘trash fish’ chat, Southern California species and conditions, women in spearfishing, body language for hunting and more! Listen and subscribe!

    “Hi Isaac.
     
    I have attached the poster and some basic information on the trial that ill be conducting.
     
    I’m conducting a clinical trial for my thesis to further advance the knowledge basis of breathing techniques that may improve breath hold performance in divers.
    I’m recruiting participants for my upcoming online land-based study of which you can be involved by participating to better inform us how to train according to the best available evidence.
    Please contact me by email (in the photo) if you would be interested in participating in this study and I can send you more information.
     
    We can talk on the phone if you wanted more info!
     
    Thanks, I really appreciate it.
     
    Billy.”
