last Sunday, almost a dozen of freedivers gathered for a looooooooong session in the quarry of Lessines. More than 2h30 in the water is surely one of the longuest freediving session I ever had in Lessines :D.
Very nice team for the day with Tom, Kevin, Frank, Cédric, Vincent, Istvan, Anneke, Yannick, Dieter (thanks for the pics!) and Fil (thanks for the pics!) and notably a very first time in that quarry for Frank and Yannick. I like it when I can help people discovering new things ^^.
I took care of Anneke, Dieter and Filip in the frame of their assistant instructor course. While Cédric and Vincent took care of the rest of the group.
So first we practice setting-up a buoy, then some extra knowledge around the setting-up of a sled for no-limit training was also practiced.
After about 30min, we finally enter the water for some advanced FRC and deep training. FRC (functional residual capacity) dives allow to simulate deep dive when diving actually really shallow (10-15m). This is also great to practice equalization like traditional and sequential Frenzel. This has become my favorite part of the course to teach :D.
Time ran very vast and at 1pm, some of us were still downstairs! So no time for me to grap a drink but a big hug to every participants had the same effect :p.
Next dates for freediving sessions in Lessines will be announced very soon!
