For the Basic Freediver course you can make do with wearing the same gear you use for snorkeling or scuba. If possible, having gear that is made specifically for Freediving will help with your overall performance and better your overall experience. Below are items that you need for the course with some freediving specific suggestions.
- Mask, fins and snorkel – Preferably low volume mask and long blade fins.
- Wetsuit – 3mm wetsuit suit is required for pool and 5-7mm suit for open water sessions. A good freediving suit with attached hood is recommended but you can get away with surf/scuba wetsuits. If your hood is not attached please bring a separate one.
- Weights and weight belt – Best choice is a rubber weight belt with an assortment of smaller weights to adjust for proper buoyancy.
- Depth and/or timing device – A waterproof watch at the very least, better yet a freediving computer is perfect.
