ABOUT THE LEVEL 1 COURSE
My Level One beginner’s freediving course (includes Molchanovs Wave 1 Certification) will teach you everything you need to know to be a safe and confident freediver, diving up to 20 metres deep on a single breath!
Freediving has many dimensions. We freedive for health and fitness, physical and mental evolution, for fun and recreation, to hunt and catch food, to take underwater pictures and even to compete competitively as athletes.
Freediving is a life-changing skill that will teach you about your false, perceived self-limitations, and open up a whole new world for you to explore!
The structure and pace of this 4 day course is the result of my experience teaching hundreds of students, with the deep understanding that most people need more time, more patience and more relaxation during their course.
The Molchanovs Wave 1 certification is the world’s
most highly regarded
level one freediving certification!
