What we do
Ultimate Spearfishing is an independent South African owned title offering a promotional vehicle for industry manufacturers, retailers, service providers, travel destinations and related lifestyle products, Ultimate Spearfishing showcases the lifestyle of extreme underwater sports in South Africa. We introduce the latest trends, testing, analysing and reviewing products in order to help our readers make wise purchasing decisions. We place a strong emphasis on informing and educating our readers about the ethics of responsible spearfishing practices and conservation.
While we celebrate those who push the boundaries of spearfishing as a 21st century sport and publish their personal adventures, we also have a substantial amount of content aimed at beginners. In addition, our focus is not simply on the sport but more broadly on the sense of adventure that all spearfishermen and underwater enthusiasts share. Readers can also enjoy Ultimate Spearfishing online at www.ultimatespearfishing.com and through our popular monthly electronic newsletters.
Currently, Ultimate Spearfishing Magazine prints 2,000 high quality gloss magazines per quarter of which 80% are posted free of charge directly to the homes of spearfishermen. We send only to subscribers who have requested the magazine, resulting in zero wastage. The balance are distributed free of charge through local dive shops and clubs throughout the country.
Our website www.ultimatespearfishing.com allows readers to keep up to date on a daily basis and be informed as to what’s happening on the water. Our website is not only packed with informative information, but also forums which allow readers to engage each other. A monthly newsletter is sent out to over 3,000 spearfishermen (1,800 local and 1,200 international subscribers) which keeps readers informed of what has been going on as well as what they have to look forward to in the month ahead.
Why still print in this digital age?
Printed material goes anywhere with you, and an additional 3 to 7 add-on readers (either family or friends) are known to enjoy a single copy. A computer can’t be taken everywhere, and not everyone has an iPad or a laptop, so print editions are still the perfect companion. Printed magazines never give a low battery warning, aren’t a hassle with carry-on luggage, and can be accessed wherever you are.
