This is the foundation course where you will be introduced to the basic disciplines of freediving; both Static Apnea & Dynamic Apnea. The purpose of the course is to familiarize you with the skills, knowledge, planning, organisation, safety procedures, techniques, problems, hazards and enjoyment of breath hold freediving.
This course is designed to be an introduction to freediving for the complete beginner or improvers. It aims to help you to develop basic skills, knowledge and safety procedures necessary to enjoy freediving safely within the limits of your experience. This course is not aimed towards competitive freediving but for recreational freediving only
After learning a few relaxation and visualisation techniques, you'll practice Static Apnea, improving your breath hold time whilst stationary. You'll then progress to Dynamic Apnea, where you practice extending the distance you can swim in the pool on a single breath - and of course, in both these categories, you will also learn how to be a good buddy to someone as they train.
The course is scheduled to run over two evenings from 6pm to 9.30pm at the dive centre in Hanley & the swimming pool in Chesterton.
The cost for the program is £175 including the Freediver touch (which includes several of the PADI Freediver courses beyond Basic level) and certification fee.
