Aloha from Oahu

If you diving on the islands be careful to dive with the proper float flag combo, if on Oahu the best diving store hands down is Hanapaa in Kalihi, you can find a link to it on my website by clicking the URL.

Keep your eyes out for Tigers, I came across a 10fter a few months back, didnt get video because it was quick and the water was murky. But you'll see what kind of fish you'll be spearing by checking out my YouTube page, please subscribe, look up the names of the spots they will tell you more or less what kind of area you'll be diving, for example "Make (pronounced MaH Kay)" means death or dead.

Stay safe

Aloha AngryTako,

I've had my eye on one of the Hatch rollers for a while now, looks like a nice gun to add to the quiver. I live and dive in the Kailua area when work and time permits, been here about a year and a half now. This hurricane has given me way too much time to dive via YouTube! Lol. Looking forward to checking out the YouTube page and nice website and resources you list.

Hopefully the rains don't get to bad here on Oahu. Feeling for the people on the Big Island.

Jeff

Aloha Braddah!

Ive scoured Kailua the only population of fish ive seen close is on the side to back of flat island out there. I dont trust anywhere near K-Bay though due to the recorded fact that PCB's are in the fish out there, you can find the link to that info on my useful websites link on my site. "Why I dont dive K-Bay"

But yeah, the rollers are top notch bro, shoots like a torpedo and solid scan in the water, easy tracking, super balanced.
