Beuchat Signs 2008 Women’s National Spearfishing Champion Kimi Werner

LAKE WORTH, FL—June 1, 2009—SpearoTek, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Beuchat International in the U.S., announced today that Kimi Werner, 2008 Women’s National Spearfishing Champion, was signed to Team Beuchat. France-based Beuchat International is the worldwide market leader in the fields of scuba diving and spearfishing, and SpearoTek, Inc., through its partnership with Beuchat, makes Beuchat products available to dealers throughout the United States.

Werner grew up on Maui and started fishing and diving at the age of four. Returning to spearfishing as an adult, Werner’s trajectory to the forefront of the sport has been nothing short of extraordinary. Quickly making a name for herself based on her performance at local competitions, Werner headed to the International Pacific Cup in April 2008, where she took first place. From this astonishing win, Werner, along with partner Andy Tamasese, won the mixed division of the 2008 USA National Championships of Spearfishing in Rhode Island. Werner then went on to win the titles of Women’s National Champion, and Rookie of the Year.

“I have used a Beuchat speargun for every tournament I have ever won,” says Werner. “It is the gun I have most depended on thanks to the quality of the design and craftsmanship and its inherent dependability. I look forward to many more diving adventures and achievements as a member of Team Beuchat.”

Werner’s place on Team Beuchat places her with the likes of legendary spear fishermen such as Three Time World Champion Pedro Carbonell, the anchor athlete of Team Beuchat.

Founded in the 1930s, Beuchat has been involved in the development of all aspects of underwater activities. SpearoTek, Inc. is a leading U.S. wholesale distribution company for the most innovative spearfishing and freediving equipment from around the world. Through extensive research, development and testing, SpearoTek, Inc. is first when it comes to bringing cutting-edge spearfishing technology to U.S. markets.
