Hi freedivers!

why "epic"? Because last Sunday were present 6 AIDA level 1 candidates, 1 AIDA level 2 candidates, 2 AIDA level 3 candidates, 1 AIDA level 4 candidate and a couple of AIDA instructeur candidates, all at once brought together in Duiktank Transfo!

However I have to say that the main purpose of the day was to train 6 new freedivers namely Dieter, Matthias, Andreas, Florian, Jolien and last but not least the initiator of this training, Sofie ! Assistant instructeurs Paul and Wouter could also begin their journey as AIDA Instructeur candidates.

So first things first, we started with the theorie in the cantina. Nice place to be :-).

About 1h30 later, we were close to the water to start with some respiration excercices on the ground and then in the water.

We could then start with the static session where everybody could experience contractions and how to go further into it.

Then we did a short dynamic apnea session. It was directly followed by a full hour on depth training including free immersion, constant weight and rescue practice.
