It took me a while to decide where to place this since a survey doesn't really belong under any of the topics, and yet to place it out of the freediving section risked fewer participation from freedivers or fellow future freedivers. So please forgive the placement.

I just want to thank everyone who has encouraged me in proceeding with my project.

Survey Questions:
(Please send me your answers via e-mail if you can, and spread the word since the more replies the better)
(Be detailed, if you can, with your answers. :) )

1. Are you a competitive diver or a recreational diver?

2. What types of dives do you participate in?

3. How long can you hold your breath, on average?

4. What are the depths you have dived to?

5. How long have you been diving?

*6. Where/How did you learn about the sport of freediving? (Be detailed if you can, I would like to use this information in my thesis)

7. Is freediving the only diving sport you take part in? If not, and do participate in other diving sports, what are they?

8. What types of exercises or activities do you do to improve your diving?

9. What, in your mind, do you see as the major risks in freediving?

10. Have you ever had a blackout or samba during a dive, and if you don't mind, describe the experience?

11. And lastly, while on the subject of risks: have you ever freedived without a buddy, even while knowing the dangers involved?

(Thank you to all who participated in this survey.)
I think you are right that should definitely be a question, I don't know why I didn't think about it? Thank you Adrian.
Btw, your pictures are beautiful.
