H.Dessault was participating in the 2010 U. S. National Spearfishing Championships in Heber Springs, Arkansas on 5th August with the team composed by our sponsored man Julian Cruz, his two partners Eric Salado and Sergei Lopez as divers and Eric Pinon as their boat driver. In this occasion the team was no lucky to win in any category but it was fortunate to get knowledge and experience about spearfishing in fresh waters such as in Greers Ferry Lake, Arkansas.
Our sponsored diver, Julian Cruz with part of his catch, made 14th in ranking.
