Re: Breath hold

Re: Pool Samba

Some useful guidelines when training divers.

A Samba or BO dive IS a failed dive. So long as you have good dive buddies, then that is all it is. A lot can be learned from it. But never make it OK...

Re: Pool Samba

I agree with all you say about the safety side of pool training.

But one point you may have neglected is that a samba is a "fail". It means you didn't manage the dive well. Great you had a buddy...

Re: what to do if swb or samba occurs

Don't worry about getting the diver out of the water. It will take too long. As soon as his airways are out of the water, that is when you get busy. Mask off and tell them to breathe. It goes: Talk,...

Re: Moving past 75 meters in the pool

Hi,
You have to be careful what you ask for as a spearo. Because getting past that 100m mark usually means you have to overcome your urge to breathe and this can be a fatal liability for a spearo,...

Re: co2/o2 tables

I don't think one set of tables, with unchanging times is going to get you constant gains. Like most athletic training, you need to change it regularly to keep the body changing. If you keep it the...

Thanks. Yeah, the production company name was a bit of a laugh, just so long as it doesn't produce them.

It takes a bit of persistence to push such a group together but once it is rolling and...

Re: stiffest fin

I suggest you study up on finning. Manual of Freediving is a good start. Then try many different fins before you buy. The idea of stiff fins being the best has come down through time from when the...

A Golden Moment

The golden trevally is probably the best eating trevally. When we can't find our target fish and it is a bit quiet we will occasionally take them. They make great Thai fish cakes or curry:

Re: sinus squeeze

H2ocaver gives good advice. Stay clear of all the meds. Most of them increase heart rate and will decrease your ability to dive.

Usually your sinuses inflame because there is a mucous blockage...

The spot was about 16 metres... just over 50ft.
