Something a little different for this fortnight's tip! I have selected some of my favourite places where you can find more information about freediving and spearfishing.
DeeperBlue is the world’s largest online community dedicated to freediving, scuba diving, spearfishing, and diving travel. They have forums on literally everything from diving without a spleen to general training tips. DeeperBlue also has excellent guides about equipment, training, and covers the latest news on freediving! Check it out here.
The Freedive Café
At The Freedive Café, Donny sits down with freedivers great and small. He goes really deep with some of the deepest humans on Earth and discovers the personal stories, the inspirations, the techniques and training, the routines and passions of freedivers from all walks of life, from competitive athletes, instructors and trainers, underwater photographers, ocean conservationists and many more.
Check out this episode with William Trubridge here– the currently CNF world record holder at 102m. In this episode, they cover the highlights of William’s career, freediving approach, and more.
