Carol Schrappe started Freediving during her first scuba instructor course in 2001 when they tested her watermanship skills by having her retrieve anchors from the bottom on one breath of air. She started competing in 2001 in the World Championship when she first dove to 30 meters, but soon after took a break from diving with the birth of her second son. She returned to the sport in 2006 when she took the PFI intermediate course, where she progressed to 46 meters and then to 61 the following year. She now holds the Brazilian National Record with a 72 meter Constant Ballast Dive as well as several other national records.
Carol and her husband own a dive shop in Brazil called Acquanauta Dive Center. “I live for diving and dive for a living. Freediving is my life.”
Erin Magee started Freediving while living in the Florida Keys where she worked as a scuba instructor. After several years of Freediving recreationally, she began working as an instructor for Performance Freediving International in 2009. She now runs the PFI Office and teaches Intermediate courses around the country. At PFI’s competition in 2010 Erin broke the US Women’s National Record for Constant Ballast with a dive to 71 meters/ 233 feet, breaking Tanya’s Streeter’s long-standing record.
“To me the best part of Freediving is progressing beyond what I used to think was possible. I’m amazed at the way the training allows divers to take advantage of diving reflexes that have been there all along.”
Ted has been an instructor for PFI 3 years now and this will be his 3rd time at the Cayman Competition. He’s looking forward to this year because he’s excited to see the many fun people coming that he hasn’t seen in a long time. He currently lives in Fort Lauderdale and runs freediving classes through his own company, Immersion Freediving, which teaches PFI certification courses in the South Florida area. He also helps Kirk and Mandy with their courses. He’s looking forward to breaking past the 70M mark this year!
