Experience freediving in a whole new way with a monofin
Our Monofin Fundamentals course will introduce you to monofin freediving, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of this wonderful piece of kit.
The course starts with theory, exploring the history of the monofin, its construction and design, and the wide range of models on the market. You’ll learn the different techniques required for monofin freediving, analyse different styles and learn about protecting and transporting a monofin. We’ll then move onto strength and flexibility exercises that will prepare your body for monofin freediving.
Then we’ll move to the pool and put everything into practice, first with bi-fins and then with a monofin. At the end of the course you’ll perform a max dynamic and, if you’re interested, design a personalised training program to improve your monofin performance.
The Monofin Fundamentals course is split between theory work in the classroom and practical work in the pool. We’ll provide you with all the kit you need*. We work with a maximum of 6 students per course – we keep course numbers low so you can learn at your own pace under the watchful eye of our skilled, experienced instructors.
After the course you’ll benefit from the Go Freediving lifetime guarantee**, giving you our continued support on your monofin progress.

Wetsuit are not necessary for this course. However if you get cold easily you may want to consider wearing a very thin wetsuit such as a pool suit. We do not have any of these for hire.
