Ciao! I'm a keen freediver, and have recently moved to London for work. Could anyone tell me if there are any clubs, diving schools where to practise this amazing sport?
Glad to hear your joining the ranks!
I suggest you try www.divelondon.com (I think:cool:) They are based in London but with members round the world, they are slightly more geared for spearfishing though.
Or www.freediver.co.uk They are in Plymouth which is a bit of a drive but well worth it, they may be able to put you in touch with people nearby.
Hope thats a help!
the sites you listed are interesting!
do you know about pools in london where one can go with a mask and fins, and not be looked at as if he came form mars??
Hi again!
Sorry don't know of any pools in London (Im from the midlands):(
I suggest you contact the London International club they might know. Or you could just try writing to your local pool asking if you can use fins etc. Quite a few allow it but dont make it public knowledge. Mind you you'll probaly still be looked at as if your from Mars! The other thing to try is looking at the timetable for your local pool and seeing if a scuba club use it. Get in touch with them and they might let you join them in the pool minus the scuba, but will be confused as to why you dont want to blow bubbles! Will they never learn?!
Good luck
people from mars....

HI Roberto... i lived in London for 3 1/2 years and it felt like Mars anyway... so just go for it!
There is a great swimming pool in Richmond,. (west London). Also if you contact PADI in the UK they may be able to give you a list of their centres... (as you may know they do freediving courses).

go well.
