"This is by far the most well rounded free diving book I've ever read. I practiced for many years and then took some time off. I was realy looking for a refresher course prior to a long overdue abalone dive. I really thought I knew it all from having so many years under my belt; I was wrong. I didn't know how much I still had to learn. I practiced the excercises in the book for about a week before my dive. I was nearly where I left off from my last dive years prior and within a month I plan to be on my A-game. Thanks to the author for providing such a detailed guide, it's opened up a whole new perspective on the sport that I grew up with! " - GrumpysGifts (USA) "This guide is one of the best written and detailed books on diving out there.For my personally holding my breath underwater was as hard as actual swimming so when I saw that there is a full chapter on how to master it, I knew I have to take this book. All the other tutorials and safety measures are well written so I am sure it will save a lot of lives.I recommend this book to anyone passioned about freediving. Five star for me !" - Vlad Buculei (Brno, Czech Republic)

Freediving The Guide for the First 10 Meters

So the mission of this book is to accompany the new freediver into the sea and to help him, step by step, in building an excellent technique and achieving new goals in freediving, like his best trainer and dive buddy!

Freediving   The Guide for the First 10 Meters

The book is a complete guide, a manual for the 1st Level of freediving technique. The writer uses his thirty years of experience as an instructor and designer of freediving courses, but most of all, the 15 years during which he has certified more than 1.000 free divers in the 3 levels of diver training, and describes a step by step method for reaching the first 10 meters in freediving. The chapters of the book literally follow the new freediver through the series of steps he must take, from dressing up and entering the water, to his surface swimming and the adaptation of his senses inside the water, as well as all the buoyancy adjustments he will have to make at the surface and before each dive. The book presents the freedive as a nicely structured, logical chain of skills that are explained and presented through a large number of impressive underwater photos of actual diver training. Even the possible mistakes in performing the dive skills are analyzed and explained. The descent to the seabed covers the greater part of the book, and everything is presented in a step by step movement or skill, while the reader quickly finds himself participating in the dive and trying to make the right moves! Every step is explained in detail; for example, the methods of equalizing the ears and the different techniques in order to learn how to equalize and avoid a blocked ear. The ascent phase of the freedive is described in similar detail and presented through many actual training photos. The book covers the use of the buddy system in freediving, presenting the methods used for providing safety and communicating underwater. The methods of planning a freedive are analyzed in detail, both for the diver and for the buddy monitoring the dive. The organization of a day's series of freedives is also presented, as a diver will have to learn how to create a daily plan of his different dives. The dangerous incidents in freediving are considered problems that block or delay the ascent, while rescue techniques and safety measures are also described. Dangerous situations, that every freediver should know how to avoid and how to handle as a rescuer, are covered in detail in the final chapter. As the writer says: "A book cannot of course replace training or an entire dive learning program. Today, however, our era might offer great training programs and excellent instructors, but no remarkable books - comprehensive technique guides. So the mission of this book is to accompany the new freediver into the sea and to help him, step by step, in building an excellent technique and achieving new goals in freediving, like his best trainer and dive buddy!

Freediving

Freediving is diving without a breathing apparatus. In many languages, freediving is referred to as apnea(breath-holding) or apnea diving. Freediving was still a relatively unknown sport around the turn of the millennium, but as organized freediving has increased, knowledge of the sport has also grown rapidly. At the same time, certain risks associated with the sport have been recognized. However, when performed correctly, freediving is safe and rewarding. Spreading correct information and promoting safe practices among the general public has become an important point of focus for the core group in the freediving community. Unlike scuba diving, freediving is something almost anyone can take up. All that is needed is some basic equipment and a place to dive. Some may feel that freediving is easy and that taking lessons is unnecessary. While leisurely snorkeling is usually quite safe and easy, adding the elements of increased performance and evaluation into the mix will inevitably introduce some risks. Adequate knowledge combined with good skills helps in controlling these risks. This book is intended to be a basic guide to freediving. Even the experienced diver will find new perspectives and good tips in this book, while the beginner will gain a solid understanding of the basics. Our effort has been to present matters in a neutral, intelligible and personal way, and it is our hope that the practice of safe freediving will spread far and wide.

FREEDIVING THE GD FOR THE 1ST

This is ultimately the goal of this book: to accompany the new freediver into the sea and to help him, step by step, in building an excellent technique and achieving new goals in freediving, all the while giving him a smile of success!

FREEDIVING THE GD FOR THE 1ST

A Complete Manual for the 1st Level of Free Diving. An excerpt from the foreword of the book: The idea for the book gave birth to many treasures, but the moment had matured for all this practical experience -having by now personally taught hundreds of freedivers how to freedive to 10, 20 and 30 meters- to finally turn into a written guide on the technique of freediving. If I felt as if I was missing something twenty years ago, by now I possessed it in abundance: it was the actual experience in the water with newcomers, people who did not even know what a wetsuit was, and in the span of one week to enable them to comfortably dive to 10 meters, while even commenting afterwards on how easy freediving was! Yet freediving is of course far from easy. The satisfaction, however, of hearing them say it, is huge; when you have designed the training program and when you had been the trainer who managed to transform a person that until the previous day had not even once equalised pressure in his life, into an excellent freediver! As priceless is also the moment, familiar to every instructor, when your student succeeds on conquering a particular depth for the first time and surfaces with a genuine smile of deep joy and satisfaction on his accomplishment. This is ultimately the goal of this book: to accompany the new freediver into the sea and to help him, step by step, in building an excellent technique and achieving new goals in freediving, all the while giving him a smile of success! A book cannot of course replace training or an entire dive learning program. Today, however, our era might offer great training programs and excellent trainers, but no remarkable books - comprehensive technique guides - and I trust -as a writer- that this void will be filled today, with the publication of a unique book for the new freediver.
