NSP:244 F*** The Tax Man | The Story Behind The Brand | Ryan

Interview with Ryan from F*ck The Taxman

Todays interview is with Ryan from F*ck The Taxman, the shark themed clothing apparel company that isn’t afraid to make a statement! As spearos, fishos and almost everyone that harvests from the sea will encounter the dreaded taxman, it’s something we can all relate to! That feeling of being sharked just as you’re reeling in that prize fish really makes you say “F*ck the taxman!”. We chat with Ryan and find out the story of the brand and some funny things along the way.

F*ck The Taxman is now a major sponsor to the Noob Spearo Podcast! Grab some of Ryan’s awesome merch and get a free hat when you use the code NOOBSPEARO.

NSP:242 Game Changing Spear Gear with Old Man Blue | Bert Keulder

NSP:242 Game Changing Spear Gear with Old Man Blue | Bert Keulder

Interview with Bert Keulder from Old Man Blue

Todays interview is with Bert Keulder from Old Man Blue and we chat all about the new gear he’s made! Old Man Blue is well known for making rugged, tough, extremely well designed and properly engineered dive gear for spearfishing and crayfish/lobster diving. First he brought out his famous SeaSac catch bag, now he has released the soon to be famous Orca Harness weight vest and Heavy Duty Floatline. The Orca Harness is a weight vest designed to make you not know you’re wearing it, protect your lower back from strain and make you much more maneuverable in the water. The Heavy Duty Floatline is exactly that: a floatline for hunting and fighting huge fish like Dogtooth Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo, Marlin, etc! A bunch of other gear as well as funny stories from Bert’s diving days.
