What is a Try Freediving Course?
If you’ve seen or heard of freediving through YouTube, TV or at your local dive club, you might just be intrigued enough to find out a little bit more about this unusual extreme sport and why a Try Freediving Course is so popular.
We say ‘unusual extreme sport’, because on the one hand it can be incredibly dangerous (particularly if not performed correctly) which is, of course, what most people associate with extreme sports, yet on the other hand is so relaxing, many freedivers reach a meditative state during their training – which couldn’t be further from most people’s perception of extreme sports!
A Try Freediving Course is an introduction to the sport (an experience session) where you will learn a little about the history and principles behind freediving and then spend a couple of hours in the water putting what you’ve learned into practice.
The Try Freediving course lasts 3 1/2 hours, split between the classroom and the pool. You’ll learn the theory first before getting into the water for static apnea and dynamic apnea sessions. We’ll provide you with all the kit you need including a wetsuit. We keep course numbers low so you can learn at your own pace under the watchful eye of our skilled, experienced instructors.
This course is a pre-requisite if you’d like to come to our freediving club pool training sessions. We also recommend it for those who are considering our RAID Freediver certification course and want to familiarise themselves with basic freediving skills in advance of their course (this is not compulsory. Our RAID freediver course is completely suited for beginners)
