Daniel..

That was in a pool.

The reason I dont like it is cos I find the contractions extremely uncomfortable, I can only swim with them for bout 18m :(

Normally we have the contration...faster than when we do it wiht fins----but this is somethins that we have to work on it---the more relax you are when swming better yo will do.

Ivan how many stroke do you need to reach the 25 meter?

Hi

I wouldnt have a clue how many strokes it takes to do 25m, Im not really into the technical side of freediving cos Im a spearo :cool:

My breastroke is probably no better then your average Joe.

Without fins it takes me ten to go 25, I saw a video from this website and I think the guy only took three. This thread should be about Dynamic PB's.

Actually, I don't know ...

I voted 75 - 90, but that is w/o fins.

I haven't tried for a PB w/ fins for quite some time.

wow... am I getting this right? You guys are going 70meter plus without fins?? Isn't that like.. over 200 feet? What's the world record on this?

I haven't really tried without fins. But with fins I did 105ft three weeks ago.

We are just talking about swimming laps underwater.
Records are broken so often I can't keep up. I think
with fins is about 185ish meters. US record( I think) is about
120 Meters. Just laps in the pool, without breaking the surface or passing out.

Much closer to 75 than 90!

I've done 75 w/o fins twice. It is extremely dangerous so I don't do it unless there is a spotter and they have to be right there.

There was a post a little while back for PBs w/o fins and 75 was decent, but a few guys claimed pbs in excess of 100.

To give some perspective on the difference between 100 and 75, I can do a 50 w/o even breathing up, but 75 is quite hard -- especially the turns. At this point, 100 is almost impossible to imagine.

I consider the 100+ dynamic w/o fins to be analogous to the 6:00 static -- almost any reasonably fit freediver can get a 75 meter no-fins dynamic w/ some practice and determination. Similarly, almost any fit person can exceed 4:00 in static w/ some determination and practice. However, folks who can do 100+ dynamics sans fins are at least as rare as folks who can do 6:00+ statics.

No fins seems to be in vogue. According to recent CAFA results that were posted, a lot of the competitors seemed to be doing no-fins.

hi

The unofficial wr for dynamic without fins is 150M which Stig Avall did in a 25M pool.

For me doing 6min + dry statics is far easier than doing 75m no fin dynamic.

Technique is the critical thing for no-fins freediving.

Haven't done it in a while but my PB with fins dynamic is about 144m. When I tried doing some no-fins ones for the first time could usually make about 75. With a bit more practise I had a PB of about 85m.

I was doing this with very poor style, as in using straight arms. Got some swimmers to teach me the correct arm stroke, and I got some tips by watching David, Topi & Jasemin. Anyway practised for a while and it really made a difference. I can now normally do about 100m with a proper warmup. My speed is a lot better also, I do 50m dynamic in about 40-45 seconds.

150m is amazing, I'd love to see the style that Stig uses. Also curious to see how Herb did his 137m one this year. I'm not sure if that's official, if not his other one was 132m or something I think ?

Cheers,
Wal

hi Wal

What was it that you were doing wrong with your arms cos going from 85mpb to 100m is quite a bit, just curious to know how this made such a difference.
