Adventure Junkie: Jordan Costa
As a freediver, you try to use the least amount of modern technology as possible. Why?
Of course, modern technology has provided a much easier and more efficient means of catching fish, but this has resulted in over fishing and pollution, which eventually effects us all.
Besides, when you free dive for your food, then bragging rights is all yours.
Longshot here, I know, but just wondering... Can you share any of your secret Maui spots with us?
So as far as suggestions on where to go, I'm gonna keep it general and just say that if you wanna see a variety of marine life, stick to the northern shores.
Fair enough. Last of all, do you have any advice for new learners?
- KNOW THE OCEAN AND ITS CURRENTS! The ocean is extremely dangerous to people who don't know the currents and who underestimate the power of the ocean.
- NEVER dive alone.
- And ALWAYS respect the marine life, you have no idea how fast things can change the moment just one person decides to do otherwise in the underwater marine world.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering what's the difference between 'freediving' and 'spearfishing'... freediving is pretty much the same flipping thing as spearfishing, the only difference is that you go in the water without a spear or spear gun.
