About The Event

Instructor : Jason Rice 

A full day course offering 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.  All participants are provided with comprehensive course notes after completeing the course.

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 a 2-3 of hours.  The body cools dramatically during static breath holds so thermal protection is highly recommended for the first stages of the water session.

Gear required - goggles and surf wetsuit. 

Prerequisite:  Ability to swim 200m unassisted.  Must be at least 12 years old.  Note 12, 13,14 year olds must have an adult attend the course with them.
