The program of the event
Athens had been the meeting point in Greece on the 16th of October, from where all Pathos Team has then moved to Ithilo in the Peloponnese with 5 cars and 4 trolleys. First day of spearfishing has so started in the amazing sea of Limeni, made of a rocky sea floor with steep descends in the deep.
Warm water at 24°C and amazing 30 meters visibility and 2 days of great spearfishing and equipment testing for Pathos team.
In particular the whole team has been able to deeply test the new “supreme”, “ultimate” and “maximum” carbon fin blades,
exchange ideas on the Sniper and Sniper-R, and also shots with the New Zenith inverter speargun, now only a prototype and not yet ready for the market, where it will be launched only in some months time during 2019. Still, here we have one first World Preview underwater photo.
The great enthusiasm and so many athletes coming together from different countries have generated so many important feedbacks, with various evaluations depending on the different techniques to approach the fish. Each athlete with a different start of his “spearfishing life”, personal story and specific approach to spearfishing, but all united by an amazing passion, respect and love for this Sport and the Sea.
On the 19th last video shooting have been made, which have included spectacular shots with a drone, and back to Athens to go home on the 20th. In addition to this great event of sport, team spirit and friendship, with also unbeatable suggestions for present and coming new products from Pathos, all material shot will bring to a very special movie in the next months.
