Explore Night freediving and Spearfishing!

Hunter Gatherer lifestyle πŸ€™ Being a Freediving/Spearfishing instructor is not always an easy job, you have to be a hustler, you have to work damn hard. I run my own school @tridentfreedivers where I’m the owner and sole employee. BUT it’s a challenge I absolutely love. For me, to be able to show people my world and teach them the most sustainable way to get their dinner, to be selective and to respect the ocean is worth more than anything. Sure I don’t make anywhere near the dollars I used to. But I’m happy all the time. And it gives me allot of peace and joy to bring people into this world I Love and to share it with them. Sometimes that means instruction- sometimes that can be sharing through these images to people around the world! So thank you very much from the bottom of my heart to everyone who comes and takes a course with me, learns to spearfish and thank you to anyone who double taps my posts! You guys help me to do what I do and I am very grateful πŸ™ #divefest2019 has been amazing so far! So great to see this event growing year by year. Tomorrow is the biggest part of the event for me where I get to open up my world to the public and to bring you all into my ocean home. Can’t wait to see you all tomorrow in Speightstown at 9am for the Freedive demo and Apnea Games! Come and learn a little bit more about the art of breath hold with me πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

Dive Fest 2019! Here is a look at the events we will be hosting this week starting from tomorrow!

So grateful for all the blessings in my life. This island, my home. These people, my family. Absolutely stunning sunset last night! Not a single filter used in these photos β˜€οΈ Just pure magic ✨
Thanks for being my partner in crime and taking these shots of me @deep.sea.james @ La Cabane

CHIMERA πŸ”± A chimera is essentially a single organism that's made up of cells from two or more "individuals"β€”that is, it contains two sets of DNA, with the code to make two separate organisms. Part Human Part Siren. Awesome to meet another like me @bobcatlisa and get to play with her in my backyard Carlisle Bay. Captured by the talented @jferraragallery πŸ™

WILD and FREE β˜„οΈ
What a weekend! Filled with passion and laughter, friends and family. When I arrived back in this island after 12 years of travels I started this company @tridentfreedivers and never in my wildest dreams did I think that my life would be so complete and happy in so many ways three years down the track. This island is so special, my friends and my community; we have something really special here and we need to take pride in it and protect it. Thank you to this beautiful land and sea that provides for us all. I am grateful for the gifts in my life and for the successes I have worked hard to gain. I’m so glad I found my path in life and I can’t wait to share more of it with you all.
As I release another seven Freedivers into the sea in the last week I can’t help but look back at how far I have come and how great full I am for each one of my students. I hope you all continue to love and respect our mother sea, to dive deep into her arms and feel her embrace you in return πŸ™

☺️✌️ Incognito in my @waterlust Hawksbill Turtle print leggings here cruising along with a gorgeous Green Sea Turtle πŸ’¦ This epic shot of me was taken by the super talented @jferraragallery !! Check out his page for amazing shark and marine life images available to purchase and hang on your wall πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Thanks for the capture πŸ™

Ring around the Stingray πŸŒ€ The stingrays in the bay are slowly but surely becoming part of my clique. At first I was super skeptical about getting close to them and they would raise themselves up and arch their bodies in a threatening way so I gave them a wide berth. But now slowly they are becoming very curious and friendly. This big fella was super curious about my @flfreedivers fins and just wanted to kiss them up !! Coming to rest on them a few times before sliding off into his spiral pathway again. Loving my gorgeous @seaeggbarbados 🦚 print swimsuit and y’all know I love my signature thigh highs!
I recently heard that Freedivers are starting to use neoprene stockings in this style for diving! Wonder if I started that trend haha !
Video filmed and edited by myself with additional footage filmed by @curwin246 - thanks buddy!

Living your passion is truly a blessing. I am so grateful everyday that I get to teach and guide people in the ocean. I work very hard for what I believe in and hope to teach everyone to respect the natural world and to find alternatives to what we have been lead to believe is the easy option. There is nothing easy about fast, anything worthwhile takes time.
In writing this post I want to reach out to you guys and see what ideas you might have. It will be three years in November since my last Freediving competition and I’m beyond ready to go deep again. I have my goal in sight I want to compete again at the @blueelementfreediving competition in Dominica 23-30 November 2019. My problem is not drive or focus.. my problem is lack of capital. Freediving competition is an expensive venture, and I would argue it should be considerably so to make sure everyone is safe and things run smoothly. However as a Freediving and Spearfishing instructor at my company @tridentfreedivers and operational manager for @actioncharters It’s allot to take on a whole competition and travel costs, being off work etc as well. So let’s see what ideas we can come up with together! If you have any ideas who might be interested in sponsoring me I have done some gigs in the past that are very mutually beneficial and would be happy to rep a good company esp a Bajan one! Maybe a kick starter campaign? Help me get to Dominica guys! I wana go deep deep deep and wave my flag for Barbados over there on the podium!

Happy Turtle Tuesday! These guys have been my good friends since I was little, My dad runs a Catamaran Cruising company here in Barbados and much of my childhood was spent diving off boats and playing tag with turtles. They are a staple in most people’s experience of Barbados and deserve our deepest respect. I’m so happy that Barbados has banned single use plastics and has made steps in the right direction to protect our land and marine environment! Have a great day everyone β˜€οΈ

Mahi Monday!!
Beautiful and delicious fish. Spearfishing can be a very sustainable method of fishing and being int he water for long hours hunting your prey gives you a deep appreciation for every life you take. This life will serve to feed me and my family. Thank you Poseidon for your blessings, I am so grateful for every day I get to spend in the ocean and for my beautiful island that allows me to provide for myself and my loved ones. Mahi Mahi is listed as one of the most sustainable fish options on the @slowfoodbarbados fishing guide as they reach sexual maturity quickly and have time to reproduce well before reaching this stage and ending up on my plate. Beautiful Mahi sandwich for lunch, I did mine marinated in Bajan seasoning with cucumber, tomatoes, cassava bread, Caesar dressing and of course Bajan pepper sauce! 🌢🌢🌢 How do you cook your Mahi?! Locally we call it Dolphin fish (not to be confused with porpoise or flipper)
Thanks again @arronfernandes and @gavinfernandess for taking me out with yas on the very lucky Lucky Dip! πŸ™

πŸ’¦ LUCKY DIP πŸ’¦ Epic day out in the ocean yesterday! Got to test out my new spear and sink it into a few lovely fishies 🐟 Shot the Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) first and then the King Fish (Wahoo). Some days you get no chances- of which I have had many days such- but some days you get good opportunities. And yesterday my hand was steady and my aim was true. Thanks again to my dive buddies for takin me out on ya new boat!! πŸ™ @arronfernandes and @gavinfernandess πŸ™ Super stoked to be a part of the @spearaddicts team. Looking forward to producing many more big fishies with you fellas in futureπŸ‘Œ
On a side note I feel like the @b.s.f.a should hold another competition soon πŸ€” Who is interested?! Hands up!

This is what an epic day in the blue ocean looks like!! So good to be diving with my husband and the Fernandes Brothers reunited again! Pure action all day. So many things happened. I shot and lost a huge wahoo around 60lbs. Next I was following a hop down around 60ft and had a bull shark swim in on me and as I was rising the shark started following me up, it opened its mouth and everything like the videos you see online. I slowed down instantly as I felt instinctively that the shark was attracted to my fins flicking in the water and it shut it’s mouth and turned off and swam under me instead. Lost my Gopro to the blue abyss with all the footage. Landed this lovely Hoo and saw both my regular buddies Aero nfernandes And @deep.sea.james land sweet wahoos. So all up I would say it was an epic day πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘Œ Three Wahoo, a Barracuda and a almaco Jack today. (Only the Barrie was hooked)
Tis the season ..to shoot wahoo la la la la la la la la laaaaaa!!
