Hello !

I am new here.

I hope you all are well and staying safe...

Not long ago, I had to move to Atlantic City, New Jersey.
I have been searching for freediving classes since May. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any instructor in the area.
Do you know any freediving course or instructor in/near NJ? I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

If there is no one, then I also came across some instructors who are willing to travel for students who would love to take their classes such as the one who is from Virginia (Nate Leazer - Blue Alchemy Freediving in VA. He is a USA Freediving Member-at-Large TDI/SDI/ERDI/PFI and DAN Instructor. )

The instructor requires:
1. A class of 5 people (Cost is $400 per student),
2. A suitable pool and depth accommodations,
3. If entry / boat fees are required the students would be required to cover that.

I think we will need 3 days for this course (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) - including theory, pool and open water.
I hope to provide more information as long as any one would like to join me in this class. We have to have at least 5 people and I believe 6 is the maximum.

He has the ability to teach Freediver, Intermediate Freediver, Breath-hold Surf Survival, Safety Supervisor (As well as various Safety Classes), as well as Private Coaching.

If you know any one already in/near NJ, please let me know so that we won't have to go through this route.

For your information:
* If anyone is willing to do it I don't have to be the host; I am still not familiar with the area and I will also need to arrange a pool and a boat if it is necessary for the course. I am ok, however, if no body wants to deal with that . For your convenience, I am willing to pay for the pool and boat if any fee is required (hoping that the cost would be reasonable). I really don't want to drive to Virginia with my kitty and make her sad leaving her alone in a hotel room

** Regarding course fee and payment - you may have to take care of this with the instructor so you won't have any concerns. I believe there would be a security fee to hold your place, and then the rest would be paid during the class (I will check with the instructor).

I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know your interest and so that we can solve the freediving instructor problem in New Jersey, if it hasn't been already done.

Thank you so much for your time and I hope to hear from you soon...
