Interview with Josh Humbert

Kamoka Pearls, hyperventilation, visualization for spearfishing and even a severe code brown story! This interview with Josh Humbert has a hell of a lot of nuggets in it and not just brown ones. We discuss his early beginnings in the ocean and encountering a complete lack of information which resulted in a near miss that helped him to take his approach to freediving and spearfishing a little differently. I seriously encourage you to listen into an experienced waterman share some hard won tips and insights in this Noob Spearo Podcast interview.
