Hi all,

Just moved back to Portsmouth.. looking for freedive buddies/groups or clubs to train with. I have SSI level 2. Looking to practice statics and dynamics perhaps once a week? Suggestions much appreciated!!
Also keen on a spearing trip or two

Many thanks!

Nick

Hey! I'm a complete newbie, went on my first course in September. Also interested in spearfishing.
Noted you're a student nurse, I've been qualified about 4.5 years!

Sounds like a plan! I live in Petersfield, not far up the A3. I'm with the GoFreediving club, they have weekends in Vobster. Club nights weekly but arena little far and it's not a fun commute in winter.

Always room for more in my opinion! Where do you train?
Well, thats just it - I don't at the moment. I did my initial training a few years ago with NoTanx and then started going to Woking with the 'freedive collective' but it was a pain to get there at the times they train. Im actually hoping to get on the next course to refresh with GoFreediving funnily enough, certainly looks like the best place to go within reasonable distance.

I recommend GoFreediving, really friendly bunch. Vobster may feel a little far but there's cheap accommodation about and it's easy to make a weekend of it.
Shame there is no where closer to us! What was Woking like?

Yeah, I'll see what dates I can get soon. Woking was really good, nice people too. Hour dry session then in the water at 9... meant I got home pretty late, I'd definitely go back if I were closer. If we got a few of us in our area theres nothing stopping us meeting at a pool now and then... doesn't look like a huge interest round here though to be fair, I put up a post a while ago and didn't get a response

GoFD have released a load of 2018 dates for courses from April.

Certainly happy to meet in a local pool. I swim regularly at the Taro in Petersfield. It does the job! No good for depth (1.2m!)

Cold water makes all the difference! One of the ladies I trained with had her own suit and was far too cold to function!

Hello guys! My name is George and i've just completed a RAID beginner course in malta - its equivalent to AIDA 2.

I just got some kit and keen to go out with some people who wouldn't mind a newbie tagging along for practice. I'm in the Portsmouth area.

Thanks!

Hi George,

In in the process of completing my RAID freediver. Just need to sign off a couple of skills.

Happy to join forces! Do you drive? Friend and I are planning a dive day at Vobster next month. Vobster Quay should definitely be on your radar if not already.
