About The Event

Instructor : Jason Rice

A full day course offering essentials for dealing with intense situations including surfing hold downs. The course presents freediving and surfing insights tgiving students 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 Breath Holds. Swimming and Dynamic Apnea training methods. Safety protocols when training. Students are provided with comprehensive course notes and a certification within the Survival Apnea (International) framework.

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 the pool water is a constant 27 degrees C students can expect to be in the water for a 2-3 hours. The body cools dramatically during static breath holds so thermal protection that can be removed once the dynamic drills commence is highly recommended.

Prerequisite: Ability to swim 200m unassisted.
