SSI LEVEL 2

SSI LEVEL 2 – ADVANCED – 3 DAYS

Freediving SSI level 2 is a 3 day course where you learn the techniques that allow you to reach deeper depths in a comfortable and safe way. Techniques such as free falling, and more efficient equalization methods will save a lot of energy so you can dive deeper and use less oxygen. We will also teach you how to train efficiently once you go back home and have no access to deep water. You will practice the buddy system for depth freediving and we will introduce you to the use of a lanyard, so you can train safely together with other freedivers. Also you will learn both a full body stretching routine that will help you increase your flexibility and will also learn a lung stretching routine that will help you increase your lung capacity and adapt better to the increased pressure you encounter below 20m. During the course our goal is to freedive comfortably between 20m-30m of depth.

The course includes:

  • 3 theory sessions
  • 2 practical stretching sessions
  • 1 static apnea and 1 dynamic apnea session
  • 4 open water sessions

PRICE:

425 Euro for single student. If there is at least one more student in the same course you will get a 45 euro price reduction (380 euro instead of 425)! The price includes all equipment, SSI digital manual and digital certification card, and boat transport.

DURATION:

3 days from 8:30 to about 17:00

SCHEDULE:

DAY 1: Starting at about 9am with some review about breathing and breathe-up techniques and theory about different training methods applicable to both confined and open water training. We follow with a static breath-hold session and debriefing. After the lunch break we do the first OW session, working mainly on buoyancy and free falling.
DAY 2: Theory followed by a dynamic session in confined water or swimming pool, and after lunch break we head to the second OW session, to keep practicing free falling and learn Frenzel equalization.
DAY 3: Two OW sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with theory and exam in the break. At the end of the day debriefing with wrap-up and celebration photos for our Facebook page!

WHAT TO EXPECT

After the SSI Freediving Level 2 course you will be confident to plan your freedive training yourself and train together with a buddy, without the need of an instructor. Once you comfortably dive between 25-30m of depth and have done at least 30 training sessions including both pool and open water, if you are eager to reach new depths it is then time to continue with the SSI Freediving Level 3 – Deep Diving Course in which we teach you advanced techniques for deep dives.

IN CASE OF CHANGING SEA & WEATHER CONDITIONS

Depending on changing tides in different seasons and also on weather conditions we might need to change the program and schedule the confined water and open water sessions at different times to ensure the best possible conditions for our students.
