Surfer Freediving Courses:
Apnea for surfers
I’ve been teaching surfers how to Freedive in the UK for many years, and have even travelled abroad to run courses. I run full Freediving courses (AIDA 1* or AIDA 2*) for those surfers wanting to add a sport to their reportoire for those calm days with no waves and also to build up the Apnea skills for surfing.
And we offer a 'surfers apnea course' which is a 6 hour course designed specifically to cover the skills required to improve your breath hold and survive big waves.
Some of the benefits of doing a freediving course for surfing include:
- Increased Water confidence
- Better ability to deal with hold downs effectively
- You spend less energy underwater, leading to longer in water times
- Perfect sport for when there is no surf
- Cross over skills for spearfishing for those barbeques on the beach
- Fitness benefits
Mental preparedness is as important as physical conditioning. We deal with both.
