Hi everyone,

I'm new to DeeperBlue forums though I've known about it for years.
You'll have to forgive me if this isn't how these posts are normally written!

I used to teach SSI Levels 1 and 2 for a short (but wonderful time) in my life. A couple of years in Koh Tao Thailand, Koh Phi Phi and for a little while, in Sanur Bali.
I was a real travel bug for a number of years. Unfortunately that life took a seat for a while when I settled in the UK. I returned to my home country Canada just last year after being away for 10 years and I'm now situated here in Winnipeg (that's right, the furthest city from the ocean/not counting the Hudson Bay-bbrrr).

I'm reaching out today to see if there are any freedivers in my area (Manitoba, Canada) who might want to help me get back in touch with what used to be one of my favourite things in life. I'd like to work on skills for dynamic swim and also would love to explore nearby fresh water lakes if anyone knows of some good summer time hot spots?

Cheers!
Kara

Hi Kara,
I'm not sure if you have found anyone to dive with yet, but I live near Winnipeg and just got into freediving.

Hey Ashton! Sorry for such a late reply. I’m heading out west to get a bit of training in for myself as it’s been a number of years. I’ve chosen to dive with Sea to Sky freediving for a private training session so far. Once I’m back in manitoba in September I’ll let you know where I’m at then. Do mind telling me what is your freediving experience level of training?

Hi Dawdy didn’t want to miss saying hi to you here as well, I’m in Winnipeg but travelling out west in the next little while/back to MB in September if you’re in either of the two areas in the next couple of months. I haven’t been doing much scoping out for locations to five here but I did speak to a few dive shops who say west hawk lake is best for diving near Winnipeg.

Ashton would be open to pool training this winter at all?

Hey guys, I've done a few freediving courses in South Africa and was a DM in Thailand on Koh Phi Phi as well. I absolutely fell in love with freediving in SA but that was a few weeks before covid hit, so haven't done any since. I'm hoping to get multiple weekly early morning training sessions in this winter, have you spoken to any pools or know if it's possible to do without booking private pool time?

Cheers!

Hello, I would like to know how much a Canada visa price in Pakistan. Since I want to study there, it is very important to me.

Hey Kara, If you're still in MB I'm looking to do some depth/ safety training but need a trained buddy. I go freediving every other weekend in the Whiteshell. Previous scuba instructor turned freediver. AIDA 4. 36M FIM, 90M DYN, 4:56 STA.

Let me know if you're interested in any kind of training really... at this point I'm considering completing the AIDA instructor course just to certify my own dive buddies Lol not too many here.

Nolan.

Hey Nolan and Kara!

I'm new to this site as well, but am also looking for dive buddies in Winnipeg. I'm also a scuba instructor (PADI) turned freedive instructor, though most of my diving these days is recreational. I'm a couple weeks into a summer-long cross-country road trip and just arrived in Winnipeg. I'll probably be here for a week or so and would love to get in the water. My home base is in the Caribbean so I'm very much a warm water diver (but am determined to come to terms with the cold water!). I mostly do constant weight depth training (PB of 30m) but am happy with any discipline really.

Anyways, if either of you guys want to get in the water over the weekend or next week let me know!

Lexi
