*This course is a prerequisite for the Surf Apnea Level 2 (Advanced) workshop to be held 0900 -1200 on Sunday 31 March at Kawana Aquatic Centre.
Gear required - swim goggles (not a dive mask), surf wetsuit / vest plus swimmers or boardies (If your are not a strong swimmer we suggest you bring body board or similar style rubber swim fins).
Please note theory and dry drills will be held at the Kawana Island Meeting Place 0900 1130 - details on attached Map link.
Pool components are held at Kawana Aquatic Centre 801 Sportsman Pde Birtinya. Maps link below.
NOTE: Although the most pool water is a constant 27 degrees C you will be in the water 2-3 hours. The body cools dramatically as time of exposure to water increases and 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.
