Ok thanks Stephan, duly noted.. Midlands Freediving Club it is.

With regard to your cove comment on the other thread, I spoke to them the other day and they said as long as there're two or more divers, and certification can be proven, then freediving will be allowed anytime.. But we'd be looking at the 1st and second Wednesdays of each month, with maybe a Saturday in between for good measure.

So we're hopefully gonna be able to get started next Wednesday..

Cheers

Scott

Hi Pete,

Me and Martyn are meeting at Stoney Cove tomorrow. 6:30 if you're interested? Alternatively we'll be doing it on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, possibly with some pool sessions in between.

Cheers

Scott.

Hi pete

We went on Wednesday and it was good. However they will not allow people to dive without having a certificate from a course up to AIDA level 2. We managed to get in without showing any certificate but if they did check then they will stop you from diving. Also on a safety point if you don't know how to save your buddy it is very dangerous. This is why they ask for AIDA 2 as it gives you the techniques to keep yourself safe and others. I think we should only go to stoney when we have a group that have passed the courses otherwise we could stop stony from allowing freediving at all. I don't know if you have that qualification or not but this needs to be said before any of us meet up to go again. Sorry for putting a downer on it all but we need to do this right from the start.

On the Saturday and Sunday meet up im keen to go again when people are free

Is anyone on here still doing this? (I know this forum is a few years old now)

I would love to start freediving, I did some on holiday in Zante and would love to continue.

You can do snorkelling/freediving in Stoney Cove you just aren't allowed to do it alone so if anyone wants to go I would be happy to :)

Hi, I live in Grantham so Stoney Cove is handy for me. I've freedived there once before.

You will need to have a freediving qualification to go in Stoney Cove. I'm Aida 2 star. You also need a surface life jacket.

Do you have any freediving qualifications?

I don't have any freediving qualifications (complete beginner lol).

I would like to start however. I am Rutland so really not far away from you.

Where is the closest place to here where you can get the qualifications?

Do you need Aida 2 star to freedive anywhere, is that a standard?

I use to do lots of watersports so have a lifejacket.

Ok, thanks for the info.

I will look into this. How much is it to go free diving as most places have very little information on pricing for it (say if I did have an Aida 2 star)?

I imagined it to be a fairly expensive hobby but as I am realising there are more places in the UK that offer it than I first imagined maybe I was wrong.

Looks good! I've contacted pure freedive so we will see, maybe once i'm qualified I'll come along.

Guessing you need Aida 2 for 8-acre lake too?
