About The Event

Instructor : Jason Rice (Survival Apnea Master Trainer)

A full day course offering essentials for dealing with intense situations including surfing hold downs.  The course uses freediving and surfing insights to give a deeper understanding of what the human body and mind go through when stressed under water on a single breath. Participants will learn breath hold and physiological 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.

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 pools water is around 27-30 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.
