When a student chooses to do a freediving course, while their primary objective in most cases, is to become a safe freediver, they will also be expected to learn how to be a safe freediving buddy too. Any responsible freediver will ensure they have a qualified freeediving buddy with them at all times - one who is trained and able to rescue them from any scenario they might find themselves in, while extending the same level of safety and reassurance in return to their freediving buddy.
Learning to equalise is one of the core skills a freediver needs to master in order to maximise performance and enjoyment of freediving. This week's students were treated to a Masterclass in the Frenzel technique from British record holder David Kent.
Last time we wrote a recap of everything David has been doing to get to the point he is at today. This time we look at his final training preparations for the Philippine Depth Championships and find out more about the competition and how David performed.
Earlier this year we reached out and asked you to get in touch if you used freediving in the course of your work. In this article we speak to Linda Ågren, also known as Mermaid Athiraa. Linda was born in Southern Sweden in 1989, which just so happened to be the very same year that Disney’s The Little Mermaid premiered.
One of the questions we get asked when people book a course with Go Freediving is 'What freediving course equipment is provided?' or ' Do I need to buy any freediving course equipment?' The answer is simple - we provide everything you need. So, what does that include?

It's the start of our 2019 season - which can only mean one thing! It's the start of our RAID Freediver courses too!
