What is Freediving, you ask? This form of diving, sometimes known as apnea, consists of submerging without the assistance of external air, and has an ancient heritage. It’s the very same way that humans have dived underwater for millennia, long before the invention of scuba. For thousands of years, Freediving was used for gathering food and other resources as pearls, sponges and corals. In the 60s, Freediving pioneers (such as Enzo Maiorca, Bob Croft and Jacques Mayol) started competing against each other on depth and duration, and this marked the beginning of modern Freediving. Freediving has lot of benefits and promotes health, fitness and wellbeing. It allows you to come closer to marine life, gliding weightlessly beside to the reef without scaring creatures away with your bubbles. But, that aside, Freediving is also coveted for its internal experience; a means of challenging and learning about your body.
