Women of Spearfishing Seminar
October 25, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
Join us Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m. for a look into the world of spearfishing for women with the perspective of two local accomplished spearas and freedivers!
Rosibel Molina is one of the most accomplished freedivers and spearfisherwoman in the United States. Rosibel was the 2013 Women’s U.S. National Spearfishing Champion and was part of the 2013 U.S. National Mixed Team Champion. Rosibel is the current 2016 Florida State Women’s Champion. Born in Cuba, Rosibel owns three Cuban National freediving records, including a Constant Weight dive to 66 meters (216 feet) and records in Constant Weight-No fins and Static Apnea.
Aubi Martinez was raised in Apollo Beach and has spent most of her life on the water. After many years of swimming with fish all over Key West while lobstering, she decided to give spearfishing a shot and has been an avid freediving speara ever since. She has competed in local tournaments for the past few years and was the 2015 National Women’s Spearfishing Champion in 2015 at Tarpon Springs, as well as the National Mixed Team Champion with her husband TA Martinez.
In addition to hearing from some local talent, we will discuss and feature other products with specific benefits to women divers including:
- The best masks to use for women (low-volume masks)
- The best footpocket and fin for women
- What is a freediving suit and why is it beneficial
- Different gun setups for different types of fishing (float, reel, tagline, bluewater, inshore)
- We will also look at different types of spearguns with benefits to women (railguns and more)
We will also be raffling off a few prizes to help Rosibel on her way to her next competition, Blue Element International Freediving Competition in Dominica Nov. 4-11! Raffle tickets are $10.00 each and you can win:
- A Hammerhead Lion Buster Pro Polespear and Zookeeper OR
- A 60-cm Hammerhead speargun with a stringer (Both more than $200 in value each!)
We will also have some other prizes for those who attend! Please RSVP for this event by either emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 813-832-6669 at the shop.
