Freedivers

Soft, smooth, quiet, confident, serene, peaceful: all these adjectives hint at the intense pleasure freedivers feel. Imagine coasting below the waves, flying in formation with giant manta rays or simply joining a school of fish. Without a mechanical breathing apparatus, you’re truly free - with the feeling of true ease and relaxation under the water.

While others may dive deeper and longer, a 45-second dive to 30 feet places you in the action. Since most of the ocean’s color and animal life resides within 30 feet of the surface, there’s little reason to go deeper. Forty-five seconds buys you enough time to gather game, take a photo or simply mingle as one with the fish. Best of all, the average person can master these dives in just two weeks without spending valuable travel dollars on gear. Your essentials : mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit and weightbelt.

Your goal is to join the water, rolling with the gentle sea surface, never fighting it. When you learn the basic surface dive, you’ll find that it takes very little energy to slip below the surface. Relaxed and confident, you choose the depth and duration of each dive. You’ll be amazed how quickly your first 15-second dives become 30 seconds, 45 seconds - long enough to dive through 30 feet.

Remember, freediving is about familiarity, ease, relaxation and energy conservation - And with this tribe we should share what makes us feel good and relaxed with the basic elements of the sport as well as the right spots and pieces of equipment.
