Surf Survival Course

We offer the Survival Apnea course, which has been specially designed by leading big wave surfers and freedivers. It is a one-day course, which will give the student a deeper understanding of what the human body and mind go through when underwater on a single breath. In addition, you will be exposed to simple and effective exercises and training methods that, over time, will deliver physical and mental adaptations, helping you to overcome “Intense Situations” with more ease.
