Interview with Kurt Raymond, aka @Exhale_Adventures

Todays interview is with Kurt Raymond, aka @Exhale_Adventures in part 3 of our Mackay trip! A coal miner with an extraordinary froth for spearfishing, Kurt Raymond is a local Mackay spearo that you’ve no doubt seen on social media. Frothing on 3-4m viz, dealing with bull sharks and tips on how to hunt Spanish Mackerel are part of today’s show! We go behind the scenes of his Youtube videos and learn what it’s really like going blue water spearfishing for the first time, spearing wearing a camera and so much more. Something Kurt is well known for is his rebuilding of the Iconic Haines 565 boat, he shares his tips, advice and the things he learnt along the way. If you love spearfishing videos then go check out Exhale Adventures on YouTube!
