Skype Lessons

1-1 Freediving and spearfishing Skype lessons

We offer 1-2-1 Skype (or WhatsApp) sessions to help broaden our teaching reach. We know that many of you simply won’t be able to take the time out of your schedule to come and do a full freediving course, so instead we thought let’s come to you!

A remote session like this is an amazing way for us to connect with you and ensure that important elements don’t get lost in translation as they often do in books, Youtube videos or in blog posts.

Now…. They can never fully replace a real lesson with an instructor, so we ask you to consider these as adding to your educational portfolio rather than trying to replace a course, but we would rather you had access to quality information than to none at all!

Lessons Available

Timed sessions

We offer sessions in half hour or hour blocks for bespoke tuition where you can talk to Ian about anything freediving or spearfishing related and ask any questions on technique, theory or kit that you are struggling with.

As these are a free flow of questions and ideas you can get as much out of them as you need. Some sessions may be accompanied by photos or videos to assist in teaching.

A great option if you are aiming for a wide overarching training goal (competition for example) or schedule. Costs start from £30.

Skill focus

We also offer more targeted sessions covering some of the aspects of freediving or spearfishing that we feel can be tackled well via Skype.

Equalisation (with equalisation technical whizz kid Ralph Graves, includes a free equalisation tool!), Basic freediving theory, Finning technique, Deep freediving form, Static training, Spearfishing basics for total beginners, Pre-course theory sessions for level 2, 3, 4 and instructor course.

As these are pre-planned to some extent, each session will be accompanied by videos and photos/images. Costs start from £30.

Video support

Finally we offer personal freediving or spearfishing live support where you send us a video of your diving and we will send you back either a live critiqued version of the same video or engage in a skype session where we go over the video together.

This is great if you are trying to nail a certain turn, posture or dive technique that you just can’t figure out if you are doing it right , or more importantly why its going wrong.

Costs start from £40.

Freedive UK will be operating private one to one sessions in June and full courses from July,

Course numbers will be limited to 4 students and all social distancing and hygiene measures will be adhered to in non emergency circumstances.

Bookings are being taken and we will now be allowing course date changes if available up until 1 week before the course start in the case of a change of government policy or guidelines.

Please be sure that if you need accommodation to attend that this is secure, as we cannot refund due to a change in your accommodation choices.

Due to the restriction surrounding social distancing some elements of the advertised courses may differ, such as boat use. Please also note that until guidelines change in regards to travel in vehicles outside of your family unit or bubble you will need to transport yourself to and from dive sites. 

Our standard terms and conditions apply to refunds and cancellations.

We are looking forward to diving with you
