Every Spearo that has invested the time and effort needed to land some trophy prey in the past, now has the opportunity to certify the experience he has practically acquired throughout the years, to fine-tune his/hers freediving spearfishing skills and safety practices.

The procedure of Cross Staging was established in order to save time and effort for those experienced Spearos who are really competent in all the skills to safely and sufficiently perform Freediving spearfishing to a certain level.

This is a prerequisite procedure/course for Advanced and Master Spearo levels, unless you are freediving and spearfishing certified for the corresponding level course you want to attend.

For more details on the Cross staging procedure, contact us or your nearest Spearfishing Instructor.
