RAS ABU GALUM FREEDIVING ADVENTURE TRIP with Renee Blundon

In collaboration with Dahab Soup Bar and Desert Divers Dahab!

Join me on a two day freediving adventure trip in the beautiful and remote Ras Abu Galum - one of my absolute favorite places in the Sinai :)

We'll explore the incredible world-class coral reefs, underwater landscapes, long seaside & desert walks, beach-side chilling-out / relaxing, enjoying healthy, hardy delicious meals specially delivered by Dahab Soup Bar and sleeping in thatched roof huts or on the beach under a sky of stars - whichever you prefer!

5:00 PM - 8:00 PM - SUNSET WALK TO BLUE LAGOON

Advanced Freediving Course

ADVANCED FREEDIVING COURSE
January 14-17 2019

THE START OF DEEP FREEDIVING!

You're already a certified freediver with some good experience!

You want to go deeper, stay longer in static apnea, and improve your freediving techniques!

The Advanced Freediving Course is designed for people who are ready to take their freediving to the next level! This course is THE start of deep freediving! Advanced freedivers are trained to dive up to -30m. You will be able to really experience the sensations of deep diving.

Much of the course will be spent building on the skills learnt in your beginner course, learning and practicing free-fall technique, advanced frenzel equalization techniques and training tables.

This course is ideal for freedivers wanting to get deeper than is taught in the beginner course. It opens up a whole new world of diving and offers the first glimpse in to what competitive freedivers experience. It is also a great course to enhance your rescue and buddy skills.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

Anyone who completed their level one freediving course and wants additional knowledge and training to dive deeper

Anyone who completed their level one freediving course some time ago and wants to redo the course

THE ADVANCED FREEDIVING COURSE CONSISTS OF

Theory sessions
Breathing and relaxation sessions
2 confined water sessions (in the bay or swimming pool)
4 open water sessions
1 exam to pass at the end

DETAILS OF THE COURSE

You will learn what happens to the body (and lungs) when the surrounding pressure becomes greater and how the body adapts to this (mammalian dive reflex).

You will learn more about equalization techniques and how to perform or master the frenzel technique.

The confined water sessions will allow you to practice O2 and CO2 tables, learn training concepts for static and how to prepare a maximum attempt.

We will refine your freediving techniques, improve your streamlining position, and perform frenzel equalization efficiently while freediving.

You will learn and practice the free falling and how to be very relaxed when performing a freedive to depth.

More rescue scenarios at depth and on the surface will be practice.

THE INSTRUCTOR(S)

Course will be taught by Renee Blundon, a USA freediving record holder, AIDA Freediving Instructor, PADI Master Freediving Instructor, Apnea Academy Freediving Instructor and EFR Instructor Trainer.

The sea was beautiful today 💕

Was great teaching Ali, we went right to work on sorting out his equalization and REALLY fine-tuned his frenzel technique!

Also started some FREEFALL which takes a bit of practice, learning how to fully relax at depth, letting go, surrendering mentally & physically to the sea, not easy in the beginning but Ali's getting the hang of it! Step by step building up the confidence, way to go Ali! 👏
