Performance Freediving has strived to give the best training and opportunities to those individuals with exceptional talent and energy. Throughout it’s inception, Performance Freediving has helped train, nurture and support different members of the freediving community and has welcomed them into the group or team. These team members make up the core of our clinic instructor/educators. Their experience in developing exceptional technique, physical and mental attributes make them the best in the field to learn from.
