  • The buddy system and the role of the buddy and diver in training.
  • Training session planning.
  • The difference between a depth session and a Spearfishing session.
  • Equipment for Freediving. Which mask, snorkel, fins and suit to choose when you go training…
  • Physiology of Freediving.
  • Proper breathing for Freediving. We will discuss the first of 3 stages of proper breathing.
  • Relaxation techniques for static training. Relaxation is the most important aspect of static training.
  • Equalisation techniques.
  • Preventing pressure injuries (barotraumas) whilst Freediving.
  • Freedive emergencies.
  • Avoiding and reacting to blackout and “surface samba” (loss of motor control).
  • The Training sessions include Static breath-hold tables and Deep water sessions.
  • The emphasis is on energy efficient movement in the water.
  • The main idea is to prolong the dive time and not only the depth.
  • It is important to understand that with proper training and knowledge a Freediver will improve the depth as well as the dive time.

You will need to bring your own gear – Mask, Snorkel, fins and wetsuit. The gear does not have to be freediving gear but it is recommended. A gear session will be conducted through the course to help you choose the right gear.

If you do not have gear – please notify your instructor before the course so that he could provide you with options.
