Triton X Mission
The mission of Triton X is to serve all those who say “Thanks, but no tanks” with excellent customer service, exceptional knowledge and experience. Triton X provides a vast selection of the highest quality freediving and spearfishing equipment—the tried and the true and the most new and advanced.
Triton X History
The history of the Triton X begins with Roger Yazbeck, founder of Picasso America, the only authorized North American distributor of freediving and spearfishing equipment by Picasso Products.
In January 2003, Roger opened the doors to The Freedive Shop in Hermosa Beach, CA to the freediving and spearfishing enthusiasts of Southern California. Roger’s fully stocked shop included the best wetsuits, freediving fins, dive masks and other freediving and spearfishing equipment made by Picasso.
Three years later,Triton X family expanded. Vanessa Fonts joined in February 2006 and Greg Fonts shortly followed. The Freedive Shop’s ownership changes and expansion was signified by moving headquarters from the small shop in Hermosa Beach, CA to a large warehouse in West Sacramento, CA. Greg and Vanessa Fonts launched freediveshop.com, revamped the Hermosa Beach shop and put in hundreds of hours preparing their West Sacramento warehouse to accommodate an inventory of hundreds of quality freediving wetsuits, spearguns and every accessory necessary for freediving. In 2009 the Hermosa Beach location was sold and the distributorship of Picasso ended. Triton X took on Rob Allen, Esclapez, Elite and Yazbeck distribution. Triton X with its partner company Picasso America sponsors divers, events and hold the annual Picasso America Open Freedive Hunting Tournaments which have been renamed the Triton X Open.
Greg’s childhood fascination with sharks rapidly turned into an obsession and passion for all water sports. After scuba diving for many years he was introduced to abalone diving and a new fascination began. He’s been freediving since.
Tired of waiting for Greg on the shore, Vanessa began diving in 2003 and now enjoys the long days of diving with not waiting for others. With a B.S. in Marketing from Santa Clara University, CA, Vanessa is dedicated to promoting the sport and quality freediving products.
Tuff Fonts – The Original Shop Dog
Our friendly Rottweiler loved the beach however like most he spent most of his time working. His work week included hanging out in our Northern California shop. He kept us on our toes, barked at telemarketers and protected his tennis ball from his co-workers. He passed away on March 11, 2009 and is greatly missed.
Our curious pup Usal started working early in life. Usal, Tuff’s nephew, joined us March 15, 2009 at only 10 weeks old and is named after the favored Ab diving spot on the Northern California coast. He’s a pup in-training, learning not to chew on gear and piddle in the shop.
