Freediving can be used for much more than just individualistic goals such as achieving deeper depths and longer times.
Yesterday one of our followers left this comment on our Instagram account: " I've spent the last week reading up on freediving; i will never personally do it, but i love the sport".
Often we read similar comments on social media: people seem to be attracted but also scared,...

Who cares about freediving in the rain when you are already wet?
Our students don't:)

Cool rainy session a couple of days ago (with a touch of hail, while on the volcano it was snowing!). Not a chance to get bored with the weather in Tenerife.

Quote of the day:
"Don't be fooled into thinking that you have the capacity to achieve your best on your own. A training partner is a great asset because when you think you have reached your limit, there is someone who can push you to go further".

So true!
Freediving is NOT an individual sport! You do need your buddies, and they do need you;not only for safety, but for support and as...

Do your feet/fins look like this when you are swimming?
We call this "Lazy Ankles"
Do you know why this is not the most effective way of finning and why it doesn't maximize your propulsion?

Massive congratulations to all our awesome instructor candidates for their hard work; soon they will be freediving instructors and will be able to share their passion with others!
Maybe you are familiar with the voice in your head telling you to speed up at the end of a difficult dive and with that fixed thought that "you need to breathe N-O-W".
Of course when you are tired and out of breath, all you want to do is to get the hell out of there and breathe again!

It is normal to doubt yourself and your abilities, especially for the non overly experienced freedivers who...

To be a better freediver you need to freedive!
However, physical fitness is also important; especially if you don't have access to water all year round, you should implement some dry training in your training schedule, which includes both strength training and dry apnea training.
Here some funny clips from Freedive Dahab, where master instructor Flo is leading a boot camp for our trainees.
Equalization problems?
You dont even need to leave your living room to solve them! Internet is a great tool and we can schedule online classes over Skype (or Viber, WhatsApp, Messenger..) and work with you long distance.
After 15 years of teaching experience we can say we have seen it all...and helped resolving all possible equalization problems that a freediver can experience!

Photo of the week!
Sometimes during dives the ocean around you is very "empty" and silent, and you can experience a sensation of loneliness.
Other times there is so much life and sounds going on around you, and the feeling of loneliness is replaced by amazement and wonder at being part of it.
In certain spots (for example close to this wreck in Tenerife) there can be marine life living there...

Freediving FAQ #2: How Do I Treat My Sinus Infection? | FreeDiveInternational

Student Jakub could hardly do an efficient duck dive 2 days ago, but with the right tips and instructions he's achieving so much!
Having a high body self-awareness heps him to process the new information and apply it to his own dives; here his first attempts at free-falling! Of course there is still room for improvement, but the results at this early stage are already amazing!
Training tip of the week:
When training freediving in the open water, which is the perfect number of people per each buoy?
The answer is 3. Why?

Let's call these freedivers One, Two, Three (and we apologize for the lack of originality:)
While One is diving, Three is doing safety for him and Two is breathing up. When One is up, Two can dive and One can do safety for him, while Three is...
