It was great to meet Marco Cressi and Emma Fuller of Cressi, who took the time out to visit the UK and TAL Scuba to show us the new CHEROKEE OCEAN and OPEN RUBBER Spear guns for 2016 in person.
Marco gave us some great insight to the market and future of spear guns and Free diving around the world along with a wide range of other Cressi products. Marco knows his stuff. We have been selling Cressi spear guns for over 10 years, a great way to spear fish and put food on the table in an sustainable way.
