Wow, wow, wow. I heard a lot, but had to come and experience for myself. Simply brilliant! I had a great opportunity to exchange the knowledge and “to put dots on i”. Met amazing people that has joined the course and even a World record holder that was making this whole experience fantastically rich with his magical stories. xexexexexexe 😉 If you are looking to combine fun and learning it is the person to get in touch with. Great person, experienced teacher and awesome location to do freediving. Did I mentioned super classrooms, chilled socializing sessions at the beginning of each day and super BBQ at the end of the course?
