rakel300x225Another beautiful days diving at Chumphon Pinnacle yesterday especially for our team at Big Blue Freediving led by our Freediving pro Rakel who was lucky enough to get the majority of their morning spent with this amazing creature. Rakel teaches breath hold diving which means she can teach you to hold your breath for longer & build the confidence to dive deeper without a tank but just on one long inhalation of breath. An invaluable skill we should all learn but especially useful to anyone into water sports especially surfers & hard core Kayakers. Want to learn to hold your breath for minutes rather than seconds. Better get in touch This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. speak to Rakel.
