Learn simple effective exercises and training methods to develop adaptations enabling you to better respond to intense breath holding situation like surfing hold downs. This course is suitable for all skill levels from beginners to chargers and provides many skills transferable across all disciplines.

Our Surf Apnea course has been developed with years of rigorous research and development and includes knowledge gathered from freediving, surfing and first response communities. As a result we focus course materials on what is essential to the development of holding your breath and functioning during critical high stress situations like surfing hold downs. Our drills and content have been constantly reviewed and updated based on our research, experimentation and feedback our team and clients share with us.

The course provides information essential for dealing with sudden and intense situations such as surfing hold downs and provides specific knowledge of what the human body and mind go through when stressed (particularly when underwater on a single breath). The course uses the surfing hold down to teach a suite of tools that can be used to manage stress in any scenario. Although it is a very popular course among surfers the skills learned on this course are applicable to anyone at any level who wishes to develop more skillful breathing, lung vitality, improve performance, recovery, stress management, self awareness, self control and of course their breath hold.

The course is suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners to kamikaze chargers and has many takeaways for non-surfers that are applicable across all facets of life, health and performance. In a nutshell we are teaching you self-awareness and self-control tools that enhance your ability to manage stress and enable you to make better decisions when under the pump. You will learn how to improve your survivability when exposed to intense situations. Participants will learn theory, develop an understanding of the breath hold journey, perform simple effective exercises and learn training methods to develop adaptations to overcome “Intense situations” such as surfing hold downs and become more comfortable during stressful breath holds. Topics covered include: Dive Reflex. Urge to Breath. Breathing and relaxation technics. Static, Swimming and Dynamic Apnea training methods. Safety protocols when training.
