Is there a British free diving association similar to the British spearfishing association?? Are there seperate clubs and competitions - I guess not as the freedivers I've met usuall attend the spearo comps. I know of the Freediver website and ionfact have just purchased one of their t-shirts - which is very nice :p - but I know there are several paople in this forum who'd like to get more involved in the UK freediving community - any hints from anyone please???
Simon et al...

I think from recent discussions with Steve Gardner I will be building the BFA website in the next few weeks....

I am also in charge of BFA memberships for the next year, along with a certain Fishboy friend of mine (dunno how I got roped into that one) So if you want any info then mail me, and i'll happily share all I know...

So if i'm not out with Howard somewhere taking pictures, or at the bottom of dolphin fighting with Lee Donnelly, or updating the freediver website, or keepin em all in check on the guestbook, or trying to increase my static PB (again!), or doing the BFA website.......
then you might be able find me at the end of....

You going to be at HMS Dolphin this weekend? I'm intending to pop down on Sunday to have a chat with Howard - would be good to meet you in person as well.
Where to buy fins

Hi I am looking for freediveing fins and would like to know where in UK can I get the stuff I want, I am thinking of buying Sporasub H.Dessault radical carbon fins, or perhaps pure carbon fins..
the scubastore at diveinn does not have those in stock, but from where should I look them from, perhaps in Devon, Cornwall area?
