Surf Apnea Course

from R1,250.00

Surf Apnea is a sudden breath hold experienced by water users after a wipeout or when caught inside a set of waves. In some cases there is time to prepare for the breath hold and in others there is little or no time. ​The Surf Apnea Course is for water users who find themselves forced to hold their breath in the surf zone. This includes surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers, kayakers, paddlers, lifeguards, bodyboarders and swimmers.

All about the Surf Apnea Course.

Surf Apnea is a dedicated surf survival course for surfers, wind- / kitesurfers and other water users who regularly find themselves in the surf zone. This course has been designed to equip students with the skills and abilities to handle hold-down situations.

The Surf Apnea course is open to healthy water users over 16 years of age. This 1-day course incorporates breath-hold techniques evolved for people who find themselves unwillingly holding their breath, theory, hold-down simulations and a multiple-choice exam. On successful completion, students will be able to hold their breath for over 2 minutes and comfortably handle a 3-wave hold-down.

The breathing techniques are awesome, after a few tips you can hold your breath way longer then expected... it gives you a confident feeling in the water.... thanks!

all I wanted it to be. after the course you'll be a lot more confident when wiping out and it gives you a good base to go further.

Very interesting and amazing how effective these techniques are. I'm quite intrigued to do a freediving course now. The instructor is very down to earth too. Must do for surfers!
