Quiet, serene and, peaceful are probably adjectives that perfectly describe free diving.
Free diving is the sport of diving while the diver descends on a single breath of air, holding his/her breath. Many divers or swimmers would have practiced freediving – every time you hold your breath and swim underwater you are actually freediving!
It is also considered as a competition oriented activity. Unlike snorkeling and skin diving, the main goal is to spend as much time underwater as possible. Freediving is also about familiarity, ease, relaxation and energy conservation.
To learn to freedive, you need to find a competent and patient instructor who will guide you through the selection of your gear and who can introduce you to the basic elements of the sport in a step-wise, confidence-building fashion.
If you want to learn how to freedive, here are freediving courses you can join in Indonesia:
