    What do you feel?

    Hi all, When you're doing a static apnea, what do you feel exactly, at different times (e.g a minute in a slight urge to breathe)? And how does this compare to a dynamic/fins apnea in the water? Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance and dive safe Rock Shooter :D

    Freediving: Bali, Indonesia 2016

    I spent 5 weeks in Bali to take both my Advanced and Master Apnea Total courses. Amazing trip. Highly recommended. Had a few throat squeezes and decided to play it safe by backing out of the Master course. I've had no problems since then and plan on deep diving again soon. Thank you to...

    Another apnea pool death at a YMCA

    I was saddened to read of another swimmer dying while attempting a DYN (type) of swim, and am sharing it so that others will be aware of it. The person who drowned was not a freediver it seems, but a collegiate swimmer. He was attempting to swim "4 laps" after a 4000 yard swim workout. My son is...

    Gone out the past three weeks and have yet to bring home my first fish.

I'm still pretty new to free diving, so going too deep still isn't really an option for me, that's...

I watched a David Blaine documentary earlier which focused on his breath hold and... - The Worlds Largest Community Dedicated To Freediving, Scuba Diving and Spearfishing
