Freediving, also known as breath-hold diving, is a form of underwater diving that makes a person rely on nothing but their own breath. This means that divers take one breath and enjoy to be under water with no extra breathing equipment. Freedivers are able (on a competitive level) to go as deep as 100 meters on one breath, how cool is that! Now don’t be scared by these numbers, as everyone can learn how to freedive. Freediving techniques are not only learned by those who are looking to compete, but also by swimmers, surfers, fishers, scuba divers or just anyone who would like to learn more about this awesome sport.
Your Freedive Flow Experience
If you are new to freediving, Freedive Flow on Gili Air offers the perfect chance to be introduced to this cool sport with their “AIDA1 Introduction to Freediving” course. This course is the perfect start to develop all the basic freediving skills together with the necessary knowledge regarding safety procedures you need to enjoy freediving to the fullest.
