I have been freediving for about 5 years. I am just now starting to learn the lingo and the different organizations. Is it possible to join AIDA ? If you could, are there any benefits, or any publications that I would receive via email or by regular mail? I would just like to know what is out there, and if there is anyting that my help me better my freediving.


best is to join a freediving body that is affilliated to AIDA in your country or area.

I don't see any benefit for an individual to join AIDA.

You can contact Glennon Gingo at the Kona YMCA at
ymca-ko@aloha.net. He is the Pres. of USA AIDA. He will give you the low down. A good guy.

Don't dive alone, it's boring!
