ABOUT THE COURSE
THE LAND SESSION WILL COVER:
-Brief Introduction to Freediving and Breath Holding
-Rescue and Safety Techniques
DURING THE OPEN WATER DRILLS WE WILL PRACTICE:
-Basic Ear Clearing, Duck Diving and Kicking
-Real Life Scenarios
-Hold down practice
-Relaxation and recovery breathing
WHAT TO BRING:
Please bring a full wetsuit (most participants from previous courses have brought 4/3s and were happy they had them).
We can’t stress enough how helpful a warm wetsuit is to the success and enjoyment of the experience.
In addition to the wetsuit, you will need:
-a swimsuit that stays on
-a mask and snorkel or swim goggles
-swim fins/bodysurfing fins
-a light lunch or snacks*
-a waterbottle with water
-warm clothes for the break
*when practicing breath holding, it is a good idea to eat lightly before you get in the water. Eating large meals makes breath holding more difficult. Having said that, it will be a big day at the beach, so please make sure you have enough energy to carry you through the day.
Open ocean sessions will be conducted only when conditions permit. Each session is limited to a 4:1 student to instructor ratio to ensure the safety of all those involved.
The safety of our participants as well as our instructors is our first priority; and because of the unpredictable nature of the ocean, we will run courses only on days where we are confident that it is safe for everyone involved.
We reserve the right to change course dates at any time if conditions do not permit.
If course dates must be changed due to weather or conditions, we will either issue a full refund, or reschedule your course date at no extra cost, whichever is your preference.
