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
 
...and good luck and welcome from my side of the planet.
Cheers,

---Very, very impressive!! Congratulations and welcome!
How long have you been training?
--and what was the water temp?
 
i have done literally no training before i went into the tank.

Dont know the exact temperature of the tank, but it was quite warm.

Thanks for all the support guys and gals, really helping me push on!

cheers:t

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!!
