Spearfishing NZ Summer Safety Competition

What is that float doing out there?

What we’re after: 

The best visual story (video) that delivers the float & flag, Diver proximity awareness message to all marine users (Divers, Spearos, Boaties).

We know the risks best of all, so let’s get creative and tell the world there’s at least one diver connected to that float, and flag!


Our waterways are getting busy, very busy. Spearos are out in greater numbers than ever and often well out from the coast. Near misses are now too common. We (divers) are essentially pedestrians playing on the road. Far too many without any flag or float. It’s just a matter of time before the next serious incident/fatality

Let’s be proactive and sensible. Don’t play in heavy traffic zones and at the very least let the boaties know that if there’s a Flag & Float, there will also be a diver – 5 knots within 200 meters
