Interview with Mike Kane

We are kicking off 2022 with Mike Kane, co-owner of Spear West, one of the best spearfishing stores in Perth and WA! We chat about all things WA spearfishing, joining a club and starting to spear at a late age, dive buddies, boats and driving for hours! Having always owned a boat, he had no shortage of opportunities to dive but starting later in life has given him a different perspective on spearing.  If you are ever in WA near Perth you should stop by and give them a visit, you’ll have learned something new by the time you walk out!
