Andre Wicaksana grew up in Indonesia surrounded by exquisite Teak furniture and a family of avid fishermen. Andre learned about the ocean from his uncle and grew up freediving and spearfishing with him from their little dugout canoe using traditional teak wooden spearguns in the crystal clear waters of North Bali.
From an early age, Andre was always interested in improving his spearfishing equipment and the family owned Teak furniture business provided him an opportunity to constantly experiment with making his own wooden spearguns.
Indonesia has some of the best diving on earth from wary reef Snapper to big Dogtooth tuna, and daily diving for food honed Andre’s skills and speargun designs.
Today ANDRE Handcrafted Spearguns has earned the reputation for building a line of high quality teak spearguns and spearfishing accessories sold throughout the world.
