Another Interview with Adam Stern YOUR BURNING FREEDIVING AND EQUALIZING QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY ADAM STERN This episode is a live call with Patron listeners and whole bunch of questions from the Noob Spearo Community on Facebook and @noobspearo on Instagram! In this episode we cover breath-hold and depth training questions, how to choose a freediving instructor, deep spearfishing (avoiding squeeze) questions, equalizing questions and more. Lot's of funny moments including Adam scalding his balls. Enjoy:) 5:00 Ben Vittino "I just want to know how he’s so happy and enthusiastic all the time. Love his energy!" Isaac “I have a question but first I need to know, Do you ever feel down? When you do, what do you do to get back Adam 187% Stern?" Dale Bartush "I'd also like to know what he thinks about in free fall. Not what he tells people to do lop but what he actually thinks and feels." 14:00 Scalded Ballsack Moment Listen in and subscribe on iOS or Android 16:15 TRAINING BREATH-HOLD QUESTIONS Ethan Yeo "Would you say going out spearfishing is going to make you in become a better diver vs doing freediving training in the pool?" Isaac "How can you increase your bottom time?" and "How can I hold my breath longer?" Isaac "Is bloodshift a physiological response that can be trained?" Damian Mckay "What are the best exercises to get more bottom time/depth?" @pickford_cole "If he had to pick between dynamic pool training and static, which would he choose?" Isaac "is increased muscle mass problematic to breath-hold diving?" Isaac "what are some safety considerations for pool training?" Isaac “How much does your attitude towards contractions affect them?” Isaac “Are your own ideas or your own limitations the biggest barrier to longer breath-holds and deeper diving?” What is the best way to overcome these? 42:00 EQUALIZING QUESTIONS R Andrew Baker "Can everyone hands free Equalize?" Jake Cross "What are the common issues with equalising? E.g one ear equalises before the other." . Use the Code NOOBSPEARO to save 40% Isaac "If you put a month into training your equalization and Eustachian Tubes, how long will that adaptation last?" 49:55 DEEPER FREEDIVE SPEARFISHING Kurt Raymond "How do you equalise when you go past that 30+meter mark? I recently dived to 30mtrs on a course and I felt like I had to equalise slightly differently once I hit around the 25mtr mark. I’ve heard of having to bring air back into your mouth. I wasn’t down there for long enough to work out what was going on but I was still able to equalise, just slightly differently to normal. Is there dry training you can do for this technique?" Joe Pedro "Can you share your wisdom on chin tuck dive & what injuries can be caused by looking (neck extended) out in front of you; typical Spearfishing form compared to proper diver form..the little things that cause nightmares due to lack of “under pressure” knowledge basically." Mackenzie Logan “I have a Similar question to Joe Pedro. Once you start going over 30m-40m how long does it take your body to acclimatize to the new depths? If you've done all your stretches and relaxing on the top perfectly, what are some of the little things like neck movements that we should be careful of and how long/how many dives to depth until you can start to move your head a little more comfortably?” To elaborate on this: I think there will be 2 answers depending on whether we are spearfishers vs freedivers.. If you are spearfishing and it is either your first time diving to these depths or you only go diving once a month or so how will this affect your "training adaptations" of diving to that depth? Will you lose them each time you go out again to dive? If you're freediving and training frequently will you be able to improve and keep your training adaptations. I think in your last interview he said he could come back after a month or so of not training and pretty much start again from where he had been diving to before? Thomas Ripard "I'd also like to ask about deeper diving. Once you start to get more comfortable with getting to 30m(ish), is there anything in particular one needs to do to prepare yourself to get past the 30m mark? Also anything safety related one should be aware of as you get past 30m? Cheers! Discovering the noobspearo podcast was the best thing that happened to me in 2020, keep em coming 66:00 OTHER QUESTIONS Rob James "When is having an underwater UFC rematch with Craig McNiven "What are the hurdles of running a free diving business, cashflow, cancellations, COVID, marketing and customer retention. Is it like a dream to do what you love for an income every day? Could you get the business to a point where it could be run without you?" Jason Harris "Not strictly diet related.. but does Adam have any food items he avoids when leading up to a dive day to keep the sinus systems clean" Isaac "Can we have the Dairy and Mucus Production Urban Legend Discussion?" @nicholasmorsecodes "How many wetsuits does he own? 10+ at least! where does he keep them all?" 79:50 WHEN IS ADAM COMING TO MY PART OF THE WORLD? @scubasteve212 "Will he do a freediving course in Batemans bay in the future 🙌" @bard_antonsen "First: thank you so much for your podcast! I have learned a lot by listening to most of your episodes. I started freediving 2 years ago. I had to participate in a freediving class since my son was too young to go alone. I was afraid and far away from my comfort zone. I overcome my fears and now I love the water. Question to Adam: I'd love to meet him, but I live in Norway and have a low budget. Will there be any chance to see him in the land of the big halibuts? Our coast is amazing. I'm just saying... An event with Adam in Norway would be epic🤩" @mansoor_hsd "When he come Lakshadweep (India)?" 83:50 PATRON LISTENER LIVE QUESTIONS Greg Rothaus "Hi Adam, I'm 62. What's your advice to older divers with regards to training and spearfishing?" Greg Rothaus "I am going on a month long freedive training retreat in Dahab, Egypt. How do you recommend I make the most of a trip like this? Captain Dan Walsh comments of teaching/freediving as a job, Eustashian tube solutions and advice for older divers. Stu Harwood "I find after a day spearing I am absolutely rooted, do you have any tips for mitigating this? (becoming unrooted) Duncan Henderson "With equalizing, do you do one grouper call on the way down or multiple grouper calls?"

Spearfishing Equipment Community Q&A with Jerry Guerra Massive community generated spearfishing equipment chat with Neptonics Madman Jerry Guerra. GoPro Mounts, Speargun Ballistics, Rigline Management, Innovative Spearfishing Equipment and even an idea there for young spearos wanting to generate cash for themselves. Listen in! Important Times | Spearfishing Gear Q&A 00:00 Big welcome to Neptonics:) 10% off for listeners with the code NOOB10 06:00 GoPro MOUNTS: Bob "Bloody go pro mounts that don't get in the way. I have a Salvimar 125 carbon gun. And cant mount a GoPro anywhere suitable that doesn't get in the way." JP Freediving "I love it mounted on the gun. I can't see where the cameras pointing properly when its on my head. I lose good shots of what I'm shooting and with the gun unloaded after shooting a fish its good to hold it like a selfie stick with the catch. Also when swimming up the camera moves on my Hollis goggles. I tighten it up more and it snaps the mounts when I'm swimming." Bob  "Yeah. But the way the gun is designed is a pain. A good clamp on mounting option near the trigger on the bottom of the handle would be amazing. That way its out of the way of everything." Different MOUNTING options - Discussion 14:00 RIGLINE MANAGEMENT | Reducing knots, tangles and crossups JP Freediving "At the beginning (of my spearfishing) it was the floatlines or reel lines. After some time you read the current etc, but only after turning yourself in a knot bag🤣" Crossups and getting tangled. Reducing catch points in the water. Materials, lengths, drop weights with reels etc 29:30 How to develop a brand new spearfishing product. From concept to creation. 34:00 INNOVATION IDEA Bob "What id love to see developed are pull cord floats. Same inflation system like life jackets. Attack it to your belt and when you attach it to the gun weather its 1, 2 or 10 when the gun gets ripped away they pull off the belt and auto inflate. You can adjust the amount of floats you think you will need just before shooting by clipping them on or not. Replace the cartridges once used and go again." Chad Mathis identified this on the market and I notice . Can you fill me in on their uses? 43:00 SPEARGUN BALLISTICS Vivien: "What diameter/length for the spear, how do you compromise between precision and power?" "Does the material of the spear impact the flight behavior of the spear?" "What goes far, what goes through a big fish...?" "The basics of the Ballistic side of things for beginners." "Sorry for my English I hope it was clear enough." Chad "We all know that gun length as in band stretch has everything to do with power. That has everything to do with how long the band has to accelerate the shaft and that is why a longer gun even at the same amount of pull on the bands will shoot harder/farther than a shorter gun. On the human side of it we are only so strong. Here's the point I'm trying to get to. Using the strongest bands I can cock a 16mm will have to be longer than a 14mm. So the 14mm will actually have the longer band stretch and that will give it a longer acceleration time on the shaft. In the real world I don't believe a multi rubber gun with 14mm rubbers gives up much to the same gun with 16mm rubbers because of the difference in band stretch with the more rubbers the less advantage the bigger rubbers have. Taking into account the maximum force I am capable of or want to be pulling. What do you and your experts think about that?" "Roller guns shooting low!! Almost all rollers I have used while hunting and tested in the pool shoot low! Many theories have been developed like inertia of the bands flipping up the muzzle but no definite solutions have been found. Please unravel this mystery!!!!💪🤙🌊" Chad  "Consistency! being able to hear with my spearguns some days I can't miss and some days I cannot hit. It seems the harder I try the worse I get and I understand that I need to just trust my instinct but it still happens." "Straight shaft! Even new one from time to time aren’t straight." "Power to weight ratio for rubbers and shafts per gun lengths. Is there any kind of rule to be followed?" Shorter spear = lighter spear = quicker spear. Without having to reduce diameter and increase flex. HOWEVER overhang is not really a ballistics issue is it? We have the same overhang from a hunter aiming POV don’t we? "The perfect combo of bands to shaft size. Also, wt of gun per # bands and size of shaft." Jason Harris mentioned the Basically they setup a test rig involving a load cell with a digital readout and they ramp up the pressure on a variety of line and know setups. The results were different than I expected. Stainless 1.8mm line with a crimp failed at 195kg. The line failed not the crimp. Remove the plastic sheath and one crimp is enough 2mm Mono with Crimp failed at 103kg on the crimp 1.8mm dyneema with standard core and outer sheath. Failed 100kg on the knot 1.8mm 100% dyneema unable to be finger trapped. 124kg break at the knot 1.8mm single braid, hollow core, spliced with brummel lock and finger trap. Broke at 290kg from Yarns with Az and Taz Podcast says "All the systems to reload are time consuming, as you can tell, I miss a lot 😂" Jay Galloway "I'd like to hear a convo on mono vs dyneema vs spectra shooting line." "Dyneema versus Mono for shooting line...pros and cons of each." Rubber replacement, make your own or buy from the shop. "Most reels can and will jam." : "Fins! I hate having to buy fins before kicking them to test them out."
