A really good collection of tips for spearfishing. The book is well written and the authors have a good sense of humour that makes it an easy read. I am new to spearfishing and this book has a lot of information that will help me improve. I have also been working my way through the noobspearo podcast that the authors run, and although it is not necessary to understand the book, I would recommend readers also listen to the podcasts; mainly because they are good both in an informative and entertaining manner. On the podcasts they interview renowned spearfishers and a lot of the tips are direct from their mouths. A lot of the tips are covered in the podcasts but the reason I like this book is it is a concise collection of the best tips from over 40hours of interviews and triggers my memory of the more in depth discussion on the podcast. Also having the points itemised helps me to pick one or two points I want to work on when I go for a dive rather then trying to work on 10 things at once.
Strongly recommend for all spearfishing enthusiasts particularly for those that are newer to the sport.
Such an easy read, all the tips are nice, short and easy to get your head around. Purchasing this book you are being rewarded with the tricks and tips that these guys have acquired over years and they really go the distance. A must read for anyone in the sport, and this should almost be a prerequisite for anyone who wants to be a good dive buddy. A few tips that I made a conscious effort of doing and they have paid off big time. Also check out Shrek and Turbo's podcast noobspearo dot com (wont let me post the url) for a good laugh and even more tips then you could shake a stick at!
I've bought a bunch of different books on spear fishing now, they all seem to jabber on with rubbish and never really impart any usable information. However 99 tips Has broken away form the mind numbingly painful novels I wasted my money on previously. 99 easy to digest facts and tips payed it in a format I could pick a couple at a one to focus on. A great resource I continuously consult time as time again. Big ups to the boys Isacc and Levi from noob Spearo pod cast, another top notch production in my books 👍
