The purpose of this club is to create, expand and foster, a community of aquatically minded individuals focusing on, but not limited to, freedive spearfishing. We aim to provide resources and insight into all things spearfishing but above all safety. Through meet ups, informative sessions, excursions and events we hope to introduce interested persons to the sport and encourage divers to stay active. As ours is an aquatic based community we will also be involved in ocean stewardship as opportunities present themselves. Whether young or old, new or experienced and anything in between you are welcome to join.
If you would like any information about joining, spearfishing or diving in please feel free to contact me. email@example.com
My name is Grant Hogan. Besides owning and operating MtnSeaFitness in Port Orford I am an avid freedive spearfisherman, interested in just about anything that gets me into the ocean. Growing up I was in the water as much as possible and started scuba diving at a young age. By the time I turned 18 I already had hundreds of scuba dives under my belt and became a Padi certified dive master on the island of Oahu in Hawaii where I attended college. When I wasn’t out on the boat working as a dive master I was swimming off shore teaching myself to freedive and spearfish. It did not take long for my love of spearfishing to overcome scuba diving. Although I could hold my breath for a considerable about of time and dive deeper than most I still had a lot to learn about the sport. When I moved to south Florida after college I continued working as a dive master and was presented with the opportunity to expand my freediving training. I took a life changing course through Performance Freediving International and in a matter of days I was able to nearly double my previous breath hold and depth “bests” and become a much safer diver. It wasn’t long after that I began training for my first freediving competition and eventually became an instructor for Performance Freediving International. Through the course of my competitive career I broke 3 national records in constant weight no fins, the deepest being to 71 meters(232 ft). Wanting to gain new experiences I moved to North Carolina then Oregon and worked as a whitewater river guide for 7 seasons which ultimately led me down the Rogue River and onto the coast where I found Port Orford. These days if I’m not spending time with my family or working you can bet I’m trying to get into the water.
