12 August at Vobster Quay

It’s the UK freediving event of the summer and tickets are available now!

The Go Freediving Summer Party is legendary. It’s the chance to catch up with old freediving friends and make new ones. The chance to freedive with top of the range DPVs, try out new equipment, win incredible prizes and eat good food!

This year we’re taking it to the next level with the inaugural Go Freediving Games Freediving Tetrathlon!

You’ll create your own team or be put into one, and compete with your team members in DPV relay racing and other events to be crowned the winner of the Go Freediving Games!

Plus there’s our epic treasure hunt where you can win more top prizes, such as a pair of Spierre carbon fins… The event will last all day, and then you can then tuck into a delicious barbeque in the evening.

In previous years we’ve also used the event to raise money for the RNLI and the Reef Ball Foundation. This year we’re raising money for Plastic Oceans, a global network of independent not-for-profits and charitable organisations, united in their aims to change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation and Room to Read, a literacy charity championed by Go Freediving student Tom Kotecki.

These people loved it!

There was such a relaxed atmosphere on the course. We discussed about other topics and this helped to get a bigger picture of the freediving world!
