Beginner’s Freediving Course (Molchanovs Lap 1)


This course provides an excellent basic introduction to freediving, great for those who want to test the waters (pun intended) before enrolling for the open water component, or for those who are only interested in pool training.

It consists of theory lessons via a series of engaging online videos where you learn directly from the world's best freedivers on topics such as breathing technique, physiology, safety and equalisation. These can be completed before the theory discussion (1 hour via Zoom). 

During the following pool session, you will learn the key breathing techniques to prepare for a breathhold dive. Finning and equalisation techniques, duck diving and safety principles are important components that you will be taught.

The cost is $260 per person for a group lesson. Participants are strongly encouraged to use their own mask and snorkel due to the current situation, but sanitised ones will be available if needed. Wetsuits are optional, but recommended if you tend to get cold easily. 

On the successful completion of this course, you will have the option to continue to complete the open water component (additional $290) to receive a Molchanovs Wave 1 certification.

Prerequisite: Able to swim continuously for 200m
