This year I’ve taken the time in between running these adventures around the world hunting World Records and taking people on the trip of their lives, to actually train and teach the basis of Freediving to bring divers even closer to their full potential.
I’ve put together a course schedule for the coming months and can say it has been an absolute blast seeing people reach their goals and become better divers and hunters through this personalized Freediving training.
Whether you are diving 10 ft or 100 ft I’ll help you go deeper, stay down longer, and become more comfortable and a more lethal with the tips and techniques from Freedive Instructors International. As a 12 time Spearfishing World Record Holder and having visited more than 80 countries in my travels, I can put together the tips and techniques to have you be a better diver in your own waters or wherever you dream of diving.
If your family goes on one trip a year and are snorkeling this is a great class to have so that everyone dives safely and can be more in tune with the underwater environment.
If you are an experienced Hunter and want to find out how to spear a specific fish in your home waters we will focus your training to get your body in tune for the type of diving you will be doing there.
