Hey guys,just thought id put this thread up as im extatic!

yesterday i went to a -30m tank in Portsmouth, the first real place ive ever freedived before...

and by the end of the day i was consistantly reaching the base, -30m! i was so chuffed as im only 16.

But above all that i increased by static time to 2:07, nothing compared to you guys maybe but it made me feel good enuff!

an amazing day topped off by a good sleep,

Nick

Nice one!

-30m? Congrats, really! If you go on like that for the next two years, you`re surely going to have some kind of a good start in competitions! Good luck from my side anyways...

Cheers joe

30m with only a 2 min static? Hell, if your a newbie, the dive itself must have taken nearly that long. I'll bet you have an eeeeasy 3 min static in ya. Try again ;).

umm, i think the total dive time was just on 2 minutes, or slightly under- i was told it was quite fast. I am trying to get my statics up to around the 3 minute mark, but am not quite sure how to train to get the goals? ne ideas?

that ish is disgusting willsrn, i bet he can do circular breathing without a problem!!
