Steve Millard will give a Freediving Lecture at the club on Friday 27th March from 9:30.

 Freediving is a great sport to help Scuba divers improve their technique, confidence and in many cases, their air consumption. It helps Octopush players improve their bottom time, and recovery time.

The presentation will be around 1 hour with videos and cover some of the following subjects:

  • Who Governs freediving
  • My Personal Introduction
  • What is Freediving?
  • Freediving equipment
  • Freediving Disciplines
  • Safety in Freediving
  • How to start Freediving
