Surf Apnea is a dedicated 1-day survival breath hold course which consists of:
On successful completion you will have held your breath for over 2 minutes, endured a 3-wave hold down simulation and passed an exam which will qualify you for Pure Apnea certification.
Triggering the Mammalian Dive Reflex and learning to identify and relax through the symptoms of high CO2 in your body will allow you to hold your breath for over 2 minutes... and most likely much longer!
Moving into the water and holding your breath without preparation brings you closer to real surf hold down conditions. A CO2 table will get you feeling comfortable and confident. Rescue and resuscitation techniques follow.
Heart rate is up, pumping muscles, a sudden breath hold, water surging around you, surface, paddle, paddle... another hold down, spinning, seconds feel like minutes, surface, paddle, paddle... again another hold down, pushed down and surface!
A short 20 question multiple choice exam will help identify sections of the course which you might not have fully understood. Your instructor will review the answers with you to ensure that you are ready for those hold downs!
Breath hold exercises like apnea walking are extremely useful for developing your apnea abilities after the course. They will help you increase your comfort during breath holds and help increase your breath hold times. Enjoy the surf!
Surf Apnea WorkShops also can be run in any Surf Camp location in Bali.
(we need a pool and a minimum of 5 student per course. 15% extra fee will be apply for commission concepts of the total price that will be for the Surf Camp)
