James Taylor at Jaws
Back in 2010 the big wave surfers were getting geared for spearfishing, we made up some fiberglass Reef Camo blades for James Taylor who was taking his fins on a trip across the Indian Ocean starting in Madagascar. He's was getting back into the water, starting with freediving after a serious back injury in April 2010 while surfing a 6ft barrel at a Cape beach break.

James Has since had a custom set of Pure Carbons made as well.
UK big wave surfer, James Hick was also in SA at the time and we built a pair of our Pure Carbons for him. James took his blades for a quick dive yesterday at Robben Island and really enjoyed them. To read more about James Hick follow the link to his site.
Both guys surf some seriously big waves and I'm sure they're going to use their fins to chase down some impressive big fish as well.

At Spierre each set of our Fin Blades is carefully and thoughtfully handcrafted to produce a fin blade that will meet the unique specifications of the individual diver. With over 30 years of experience in freediving and spearfishing and taking feedback that we receive continuously from top divers, we take this experience, insight and passion and apply it to design and produce the best possible blade. 

We often get asked the question, what is the difference between the various Spierre fin blades models available. Below you will find a detailed description of what makes each fin model worthy of its category.

Mozambique Spearfishing with SPIERRE

August 28, 2017

Some photos from a  spearfishing trip to Mozambique where we had warm weather conditions, we dived two good reefs coming up from 35 to 15meters which attracted some nice game fish - on our second day out Michael shot a 31kg saily and I managed to get a 20kg couta. The next day I got a nice 14kg wahoo and during our stay we managed to shoot a number of very nice fish such as good size Kaakap of up to 9kg and a number of nice size coutas and other Kingfish.
