Freediving is the art of holding your breath underwater! This challenge is accessible for everybody! Freediving is often shown as a very dangerous sport in the media but practiced with quilified instructor at a leisure level, it is a very safe activity.

With some adequate instruction and proper techniques, it is suprisingly easy to improve your breath-hold time. Most of the students manage to double their maximum breath-hold time within only a few hours of instructions! 

The freediving courses aim at improving your confidence in the water while exploring the underwater world. You will learn how to breath properly before and after diving, you will get familiar with diaphragmatic breathing, relaxation techniques and safety procedures. Practicing freediving will also greatly benefit any watersports riders such as kiters, surfers, windsurfers...
