Interview with Sam Dawson

Sam Dawson has tonnes of experience diving all around Australia and regularly dives competitions. Today’s chat has some really good insights into equipment and thinking about setups. We also get right into scrounging which is a collection of techniques for effective hunting in temperate waters. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about muffling equipment, entering caves effectively and even some ideas about how to use a torch. Listen in:)
