What equipment do I need for freediving? | Equipment/Gear | OceanChan

24 35



Welcome back to another episode of OceanChan. Many of you have asked about what kind of equipment is used for freediving. Freediving may seem like a sport which uses less equipment to scuba, but there are still several essential items required for a safe and relaxing dive.
As the weather this week has been ordinary, I will go through my equipment.
Items featured in this video include:
– Wetsuit (Mares 3mm Phantom)
– Fins (Cressi Garra Bi-Fins)
– Mask (Cressi Nano Dark Low Volume)
– Weight belt and weights
– Dive Computer (Mares Smart Apnea)

    I’m buying my first gears for freediving this week! Your content was simple, straightforward and very helpful. Thank you!

  4. zazugee says

    Is a kayak+signal buoy better or a spearfishing float?
    oh, i guess in your case you're diving with another person, and kayaking takes you faster to your point of dive.
    but you said you dive close to shores and reefs, which isn't too far.

    I also have a mares smart, but mine have both scuba and freediving modes
    the only issue i had with it, was that in DNF, it switchs to depth diving mode at the 2meters deep side of the pool :/

    what camera do you use

  8. Crystal Freediving says

    I would strongly recommend some surface marker, even if you are not freediving where there is a lot of boat traffic. And nose clip, if you are training 😉

    Dude awesome video, I've just started to think about doing a free diving course this makes me so keen to do it, but its sounds more complicated than I thought it was going to be!

    When you upgrade your fins get some fiberglass fins, they have significantly faster rebound/snap back than plastic yet very durable for shore diving. And unless you do crap ton of offshore, carbon are a waste of money to only be destroyed on a rock.
    Great vid BTW!!!
