Wave 1 Molchanovs Certification Course
*If the student is capable of Wave 2 requirements within 5 days, Wave 1 is superseded by Wave 2.*
Discover your natural freediving ability and learn the basics with the Wave 1 beginners course, while you’ll get to reach depths of between 12 and 20 metres either by finning or pulling yourself down and up the line.
During this course you will be taught all about the physics and physiology of freediving, the right techniques to hold your breath beyond a minute and a half, while you’ll be introduced to freediving equalisation, relaxation and breathing. You will discover the important role carbon dioxide plays and what we have in common with marine mammals. With a focus on technique and efficiency, you will also learn various pool disciplines such as static and dynamic apnea.
Mindfulness is an important element of the system, which is why you will be introduced to mental skills so that you can relax and execute your dives with greater ease. The buddy system and safety rules like how to weight yourself properly in both the pool and open water are also covered so that you can enjoy the sea in the safest possible way, all while offering you a fun and relaxed experience.
