Last chance to take my survey, and contribute to my History Day assignment! I think I will be organizing the relpies pretty soon, so I just wanted to see if there was anyone else who might want to contribute to my project:

Online Survey Questions:

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?

(extra)12. Why do you Freedive?

Thank you,
