FREEDIVING AT H2O
Leave your tank and hold your breath!
H2O is able to offer coaching and training courses in the growing sport of freediving. With the use of minimal equipment students are able to train their own bodies to be able to go longer and deeper on one single breath of air. How relaxed you can get is the real key to the sport. Dahab is famous for its deep dive sites such as Blue Hole & Lighthouse right off the shore, where you’re able to get all of our training with us in a stress-free environment.
Learning to Freedive is not about achieving depth or time but building the right attitude and attention for safe practices during Freediving.
At H2O we teach the most established learning framework of Freediving from AIDA (International Association of Development of Freediving). From AIDA 1* to 4* courses. For the aspiring professional the AIDA instructor course.
Since the AIDA Education system is based on a gradual progression in performance, in-water ability but also in theoretical knowledge, each course builds on the knowledge you learned in the previous level.
AIDA 1* is a one day intro course designed to give you a taste of Freediving and find out what Freediving is really about.
AIDA 2* is a 2.5 day course designed to give you a full outline of what Freediving is all about. It includes four of the disciplines of Freediving Static, Dynamic, free immersion and constant weight.
AIDA 3* is a 4 day course designed to continue your Freediving education. With 3 pool sessions, 4 open water sessions and the next level of theory, you will understand some of the more advanced Freediving skills.
AIDA 4* is a 4 day course designed to develop your Freediving in both the theory and practical sides of Freediving. The qualification will allow you to become an assistant instructor, enabling you to assist a qualified instructor in running courses.
This is a min. 10 day course that does not teach you how to Freedive; it’s about how to teach Freediving and how to coach students along the AIDA framework to allow them to get their best performances and improve their own Freediving.
Additionally, tailor-made coaching or training days are available if you are planning to increase your depth, dynamic length or breath-hold or want to develop a specific discipline such as monofin or just want to practice or develop your Freediving outside of a course.
