I'am preety new to freediving, so I would ask which equipment (fins, snorkel, mask...) should I buy. I dive only in summer time so no cold water :p.

hi b4d

just some idea:

plastic freediving fins with soft- medium stiffness blade (like cressi gara 2000 ld or cressi 3000 or sporasub footpockets with extra blades)
neoprene socks (thickness depending on fit of footpocket)
small volume mask (like cressi minima)
any rubber weight belt
5mm tailormade freediving suit (check www.eliossub.com)
any cheap snorkel (i'd recommend omer zoom)

i'm sure you could order the whole lot from elios.
or check www.scubastore.com. they have a good reputation as well. you find a link here on db.

where exactly do you dive?

The coasts of Slovenia and Croatia, Adriatic sea and some mediteranean sea.
as for fins...i went with the omer millenium competitions and love them. when i first took them out i couldnt believe how quick you can go with freedive fins using such lil effort.

As for the snorkel, if you are spearfishing, ive found it best to get a snorkel with the purge valve on the bottom and a simple splash guard on top. When i say simple mean it just has two slats that channel water to the sides. I was checkin the omer site and the Kios looks like the style id get, but depending on the price just find a cheaper brand. I only say this because with spearfishing you are going up and down and then swimming around on the surface, so anything that keeps water out of the snorkel just makes things easier.
