SIGN UP HERE! The tournament honors the legacy of Kirk McNulty, a surfer, diver, brother, and son. Kirk was a world class waterman who was inspired by everything ocean. Although some of you may not have known Kirk we hope that you will participate as we are a small family of spearfishermen here on the West Coast. .
A $25 entry is required prior to spearing a fish. Proceeds will be donated to the White Seabass Hatchery Program led by Hubbs-Seaworld to help improve the WSB population on our coast.
Please join us in the 4th Annual tournament to celebrate Kirk's life and passion for the sea. Winners will be chosen by Top 3 Biggest Fish. In order to help further the efforts of White Seabass Hatchery Program led by Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute we have made it mandatory that fish heads are turned in to qualify your catch for placement (Drop off locations below). If the fish head(s) have been tagged an additional prize will be given and determined by the fish that has traveled the furtherest from its grow out location.
OceansGlobal highly recommends that divers have a freediving certification from Performance Freediving International (PFI), Freediving Instructors International (FII) or the equivalent. Safety courses and dive insurance provided by Divers Alert Network (DAN) is also recommended.
The Awards Party and raffle will be held May 13th at Tarsan in Redondo Beach, CA.
