Interview with Gerasimos Kavvadias
One of Greece’s best spearo’s joins us for a good chat about last years spearfishing world championships. We also talk about Greek spearfishing and he shares some of his ninja spearfishing hunting techniques. Gerasimos Kavvadias (Jerry) also shares some good insights into what a spearfishing mentor really is. Perhaps you don’t need to have a close relationship with someone in order for them to be an effective mentor. Jerry’s enthusiasm and passion for spearfishing and the Greek spearfishing lifestyle come through loud and clear and despite English being his second language, Jerry communicates very effectively in this interview.
