A duck dive for a CWT dive with monofin can be done in 2 different ways:
the regular and most popular duck dive will end with an arm stroke, so that you have to bring your arms towards your legs.

It is so easy to get frustrated and wanting to quit when equalization doesn't work at the first try...this is when a lot of beginners usually give up and decide freediving is not for them.
BIG mistake! Equalization problems are VERY common and most of the times it takes just a couple of days to fix!

Some cool action at Freedive Dahab!
Newly born freedivers have been sent into the world:)
Do you see those bubbles coming out of the freediver's mask as he is equalizing his ears? And do you know why that's not ideal?

Tell us your thoughts and let us know your questions; we will answer them and sum it all up in the next blog post:)

Sometimes we take a break from training and go freediving for fun !

In Tenerife there are a couple of dive sites where you can dive / freedive with Atlantic Rays (and other kind of rays too), and it is very worth to take some time out of your training schedule to do that:)
40 meters of depth is an unforgettable milestone in each freediver career, and it certainly deserve a celebration photo and a big smile!
Congratulations Petra!

Happy week-end to all freedivers:)
Do something different this year and join our VALENTINE TRAINING WEEK PACKAGE ❤
New freedivers still ask: "what is the secret of freediving?"

1- PRACTICE!
2- Get to know the real yourself (and not what you would like it to be:), and then find out how to talk to him ("just do it!" is usually not the right thing to say).
