If done properly, freediving is incredibly safe and has benefits that go way beyond how you feel in the water. Here are the top 10 health benefits of freediving.
When I learnt to freedive I thought I knew a little about the sport, but looking back, I realise now I knew nothing. I just jumped into the (30m) deep end, took a big breath and hoped for the best. However, I was different to most beginner freedivers, I didn’t make five beginner freediving mistakes. Oh no, my mistakes were in double figures…
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, or in the world of freediving, the water is always bluer on the other side of the reef. Envy is a part of life, it’s one of the seven deadly sins, but what are five things that are guaranteed to give you dive envy? I’ve had a think, I’ve had a dream, and I’ve got my list down. Let’s see if you agree…
When people find out I am a freediver, they first ask me how long I can hold my breath, and then how deep I can dive. After they have expressed shock and have shaken their heads, they usually say ‘I could never do that' and proceed to recite a number of complete myths about freediving. I then have to make a detailed rebuttal of their beliefs, and explain that ANYONE could achieve what I have.
On 22nd - 23rd February 2020, follow the amazing success last year, the second annual Go Diving Show will take place at the Richoh Arena, Coventry. The Go Diving Show promises to be even bigger and better than last year, with four stages.
Every so often you see something come along and think two things - 'Why didn't I think of this?' and 'Why doesn't EVERYONE know about them?!' This is what happened when I first discovered Salmon Skin Crisps or Sea Chips as they are known. Read my interview with the founders, here.
Our freediving camp training holiday in Tenerife has quickly shot to the top of our most hotly anticipated calendar events of the year - and with good reason! This land-based holiday has all the ingredients a freediver could possibly want on a freediving camp holiday.
In a recent press release the Royal Navy announced the SETT Tank in Gosport was closing. I look back at how I discovered the SETT tank and reflect on the amazing times I had there.
