Molchanovs Wave 2 in Cebu, Philippines


Start your Wave 2 course in Singapore and finish it in the clear blue waters of Cebu! To maximise your holiday time, we complete the theory and pool components in Singapore and focus on depth and recreational dives overseas. 

This course is for those who are interested in improving their freediving techniques for longer breath holds. You will learn how to train the body for freediving and all the skills and knowledge needed to dive comfortably up to 24-30 meters, as well as hold your breath beyond two and a half minutes. 

You will cover more advanced theories of freediving to help you understand the physiology and techniques behind diving deeper. Topics include breathe-up modifications, improvement of Frenzel equalization, introduction to the dolphin kick and much more. Molchanovs Wave 1 certification (or equivalent - AIDA 2, SSI Level 1, PADI Freediver) is prerequisite for this course.

The course will begin with series of online videos (independent study), and the pool component will be on 22 Mar 2020, 11am-2pm, at Our Tampines Hub swimming complex. The open water components of the course will be completed in Cebu, Philippines, from 10-14 Apr 2020. There are 4 open water dives included in this course, and you can add more training sessions after the course if you wish ($55 per session). Accommodation, a recreational freediving day trip to Moalboal and return transfers to Cebu airport (if travelling with the group) are included in the price. More information on the trip is available here

On the successful completion of the course, you will receive a Molchanovs Wave 2 certification (equivalent to AIDA 3, SSI Level 2, PADI Advanced Freediver)
