I dive for hunting since July....and me and my friend saws that I've good skills for a newbie! To be honest from the beginning i've greatest static/dynamic times than the old school!
After 2 weeks I was able to have static apnea (agachon) for 2 minutes....and dynamic ( à l'indienne ) for 1'10"....and go easily to 15 meter for hunting.
When i try a static apnéa (outside water) i did 5'01"....
Now i didnt specially work that and i'm able to dive at 20 meter for hunting without matter! I dont go deeper coz of the security and i dont know somebody who could follow me! So i will try some stage to go 30 meter and more ( in a sports way, not for hunting!)
Now i'm able to do 6'01" (outside water)...but i've no really technics ( breath and relax)
Is it good very good, normal for all of you who dive????
Thanx to answer!
It's very nice to have answered....i love the way divers says welcome each others...
Why nobody care when there is a new member , it's kind of pathétic misters mods!

Welcome. I'm sure that nobody intended to overlook your post. Maybe folks are just jealous of your 6:01 static (I know I am;))
Well there is a newbie forum (for beginners)

And I have a static of 6'35", and you're time is very good for a beginner/anyone so with training you could have 7-8+ minutes.

By the way I would say that 6'01" is not normal it is very good and much better than most, so I would think you have a natural ability.

Welcome to the forum.
