SURF APNEA - GOLD COAST - 12 SEPTEMBER 2020
Time & Location
About The Event
Instructor : Jason Rice
This is a blended version of a full day face to face course. The theroy (2 hrs) will be conducted via zoom on the Wednesday evening 09 September 1900-2100 ). The Practical and pool component (3 hrs) will be held the following Saturday (1000-1300) at the Gold Cost Aquatic Centre in Southport Qld.
The course offers essentials for dealing with intense situations including surfing hold downs. The course examines freediving and surfing insights giving you a deeper understanding of what the human body and mind go through when stressed under water on a single breath. Participants will learn theory, develop an understanding of the breath hold journey, perform simple effective exercises and learn training methods to develop adaptations to overcome “Intense situations” such as surfing hold downs. Topics covered include: Dive Reflex. Urge to Breath. Breathing and relaxation technics. Static, Swimming and Dynamic Apnea training methods. Safety protocols when training.
Gear required - swim goggles (not a dive mask), surf wetsuit plus swimmers or boardies (If your are not a strong swimmer we suggest you bring body board or similar style rubber swim fins).
NOTE: Although most pool water is around 27 degrees C students can expect to be in the water for the entire 2-3 hours. The body cools dramatically during static breath holds so thermal protection is highly recommended for the first stages of the water session.
Prerequisite: Ability to swim 200m unassisted ( body bord fins can be worn if required). Must be at least 12 years old. Note 12, 13,14 year olds must have an adult attend the course with them.
