A Little bit about Maxime..

My name is Maxime Blondel. I was born in France in 1984 and grew up on the beautiful Mediterranean coast near Toulon, a city located in the South East of the country.

Growing up, spear fishing was a family pastime, with my dad, my uncles and my mum all taking part.  I grew up watching them l and fell into the sport at a very young age.

I am also a two times Underwater Hockey World champion from 2009 and 2013.

Professionally I have been a registered nurse since 2007 with years of experience both in intensive care and Accident and Emergency.
I have also extended my medical knowledge and experience by completing my Offshore Medic Certificate.

I am also qualified HSE Air commercial diver (since 2013).

The sea is a hugely important part of my life. Everywhere I go I take the opportunity to jump in. Whether I am discovering new fish, new techniques or meeting new Spearos I feel that all will enrich my Spearo knowledge. I have been spearfishing for more than 20 years and have dived all around the world (SA, Oz, Med, Atlantic, North Sea, Danish sea, NZ, Panama).

The Frenchman LTD was created a few years ago as I felt I could transfer my wealth of knowledge to young and upcoming Spearos. 
Through the courses I will share with you my experience, I will teach you to be safe and skilled whilst improving your chances of coming home with fish.
Developing conscientious Spearos who understand their ability to manage sea resources and maintain a sustainable way of providing fresh sea food is key.
Every sea has its own challenge and what makes a good spearo is our capability to adapt to these challenges.
