Justin Baker is a 32-year old native Floridian living in Fort Pierce on Florida’s Atlantic coast who began freediving and spearfishing 8 years ago. Surfing was his initial water passion, but when the waves when flat he started swimming off the beach for lobster. That led to trying a pole spear to shoot some fish and that’s when his new addiction began!
His favourite place to dive is his home base of Fort Pierce, especially when the visibility is good, followed closely by the Bahamas.
Justin is sponsored by several leading spearfishing brands, including Real Sea Marine Camo, Moana Waterman carbon fins, Speared Apparel, Keller Aquatics, Spearing Magazine in addition to Ocean Guardian.
He feels extremely blessed to be supported for doing something that he loves that also puts food on the table.
