alright well since its been flat and im in desparate need of doing something fun at the beach (even though wednesday it looks like we'll be getting a waist high swell...woo!)...i was thinkin about taking up spear fishing.......the thing is, i dont know anything about it. i figured someone on here might know a thing or two so i figured i'd ask a few questions...

where would i go about getting the right equipment?
do i need a license to do it?
any pointers?

i figure ill just give it a try. it sounds like fun...thanks for any responses
