Hello fellas

My name is Bernard and I'm from Albania. Last year during summer vacations in my country I discovered diving.
I really enjoyed it and i would like to learn more about diving as I'm a total newbie. Very happy to find this forum.

I hope you guys will suggest me some threads to read.

Hi @bernard.c - welcome to the forums. Lots of information on the forums.

Tell us a bit about yourself - are you interested in Freediving, Scuba, Spearfishing?
I'd say scuba and freediving are something completely different and one isn't necessarily more or less advanced than the other. It's like riding a bicycle vs driving a car. Both are vehicles and get your where you need to be, but other than that they can't really be compared.

Anyway, since you found deeperblue.com, I'd take it that you already found the 'beginners guide to freediving' . If not, here is a link (click) for you. It's quite an extensive guide, so it should give you a solid starting point from where you can search Google and the forums in a more targeted way.

Where in Albania are you?
