Welcome to the home page of the RetroSub Freedivers. We are a loose band of underwater hunters, gatherers, and sightseers who seek to relive the halcyon days of underwater exploration by using primitive, historical, or in other ways inadequate equipment.
To become a member of RetroSub, simply join the RetroSub mailing list. Also, we need contributions (dive reports, reviews, etc.) so feel free to contact us.
This website is organized into the following departments:
RetroSub - Club information: who we are, what we stand for, events, and other etceteras.
History - A timeline, essays, and observations about the past, present, and future.
Stories and Articles - Stories, articles, and dive reports.
Pictures - Pictures of fish and freediving.
Equipment - Old stuff, new stuff, general "stuff".
Bricolage - How to make and modify equipment.
Tips - For the new freediver and spearfisher.
Ecology and Responsibility - The code of the spearfisher.
NorCal Fish - Data on all the fish you'd expect to see in Northern California, including CA DFG minimum sizes/bag limits and CA sport diving records.
