Myself and the other Bondi Lifeguards were lucky enough to take an underwater survival training course with Erez and the team at Apnea Australia. We of all people know how dangerous the ocean can be so the skills we learnt will give us the confidence we need to handle just about any situation the ocean can throw at us. We can’t recommend Erez and his team highly enough. These guys really are the best of the best and we are grateful for their time and knowledge.
FIND COMFORT IN DISCOMFORT
Surfing is one of the world’s most demanding activities. The level of activity can vary from calm, slow, easy surfs to explosive, fast and extreme experiences.
No matter what level of surfer you are, no matter what waves you surf – you could benefit from learning how to improve your breath-hold and core strength.
Apnea Australia offers Surfing oriented breath-hold and core training workshops in Australia and the Pacific.
There have been many discussions as to what training is best suited for surfing in general and big-wave surfing in particular. Most surfers end up practicing the “rock running” drills and similar drills.
After years of experience in the field of breathing and high performance training we have developed a system that will maximize your ability to perform in the likely event of getting caught under a wave.
YOU SHOULD ATTEND IF YOU WANT TO:
- Improve your breathing & increase your breath-hold
- Overcome pain and fear that limits your surfing
- Master your nervous system
- Develop effective warmup routine
- Relax during hold downs
- Recover faster between sets
- Challenge yourself and experience something new
