Level 1 or Wave 1 is where you will learn the foundations of freediving, equalisation, breath-holding and relaxation in the water. You will learn all the physical, mental techniques to start your freediving journey and dive to a depth of 12-20 meters on a single breath!
Our course takes place amidst the stunning backdrop of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Eastern Suburbs, and the tranquil waters of the Central Coast. It caters not only to complete beginners but also to individuals with prior freediving, spearing, surfing, or diving experience who have yet to undergo formal freediving training. On top of that, we can cater for group bookings too if you were looking at giving freediving a crack with your friends!
Whether you’re starting from scratch or seeking to refine your existing skills, our Level 1 course is the ideal platform to nurture your passion for the underwater world.
Join us to unlock the wonders of the ocean’s depths and discover the harmony between mind and water that freediving brings.
The first day involves knowledge development about equalisation, freediving, and safety, as well as breathing and breath hold techniques and relaxation. This is followed by a pool session to put these techniques into practice, as well as introduce dynamic apnea (swimming distance underwater), and safety training for rescues.
The second day consists of 2 open-water sessions. The first session is designed to get you comfortable with equalisation, free immersion, and depth diving techniques. In the afternoon the second open-water session will bring all the skills that you have learnt together in constant weight freediving to get you deep!
The following gear for the course is included for free mask, snorkel, freediving fins, weight belt, and weights. Wetsuits can be rented with a cleaning fee of $40.
