Freediving Central Community

The Freediving Central Community is for anyone who has completed a course with us, joined a training session or come along to one of our social dives.

Our FC Community is a place to connect with other freedivers, find a diving buddy, ask questions, woo hoo about your new PB (and have some PB cake) or just chat all things freediving!

We hold regular BBQ’s and social dives to explore different areas around Sydney and NSW. These are free events for us all to catch up for some good old fun and laughter together!

Social Pool Session – A ‘yeah the buoys’ day
10 October 2020

Mixing things up a bit, we held a social pool session for some of our Wave 1 students! A couple of the girls had to pull out of the session last minute and so it was all boys smashing some monster breath holds and challenging themselves in our pool drills.

After our session we got a pub grub lunch and had a good LOL! But first, we just had to get a photo with this sign as we were leaving the pool! Haha!

PS – Don’t worry! The pool knew we were running a freediving session and we had all the correct permissions in place!

R U OK Day BBQ – Swimming through caves and canyons
13 September 2020

What a huge success our first R U OK DAY Event was!!!

Over the weekend Freediving Central and a group of 20 freedivers got together at Terrigal Haven for a fun dive, BBQ and a bloody good time!

The vis gods shone down on us with 15m vis, Dan’s attempt at cooking was quickly overtaken by Adrian who saved our stomachs, Evan (commonly known as ‘Master Evan’) kept the drinks flowing and we were surrounded by such wonderful people! What a perfect day! We can’t wait for the next social dive and the next annual R U OK DAY Event!

Thank you so much to everyone who was there. We promise we won’t make you swim as far at the next social dive!

Shelly Beach – Riding underwater motor bikes and finding a baby shark “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo”!
8 July 2020

Want to know the perfect way to get a song stuck in your head for the next two days? Swim with a baby shark!!

After playing around and taking photos on the famous underwater motorbike we then set our sights for some shark spotting. Kasia had told us it was Port Jackson shark mating season and so we were sure we would see some! Then all of a sudden Kasia yelled, “BABY SHARK!!”

He was the cutest baby shark, only about 20cm long! He was swimming around us and his little dorsal fin barely broke the surface. We watched him for ages as he kept on swimming up to each of us, hiding under arms and swimming between us! Em named him ‘Sausage’ and he was a real heart melter!
