7 Things Freedivers NEVER Do | Freediving Tips and Tutorials

27 9



Time for some more freediving tips and tricks

You guys wanted more tips, so I thought of just putting up something simple. This video is aimed at complete beginners. You will almost certainly learn these 7 ‘nevers’ in any level 1 freediving course. I just put the most basic ‘never to do’ tips any here, but this is by no means a complete list.

— SOMETHING I FORGOT —–
In addition to the point about never diving with the snorkel in your mouth – I forgot to mention the point that – if you dive the the snorkel in your mouth, it fills with water during your dive – on re-surfacing – you need to forcefully blow out to clear the snorkel – and this can cause you to blackout.

Stay tuned as ill put up the inverse of this – “7 things freedivers always do” in the next video

While I put these videos up for your general information – I never mean any of these videos to be replacement for proper freediving training. Freediving with an un-certified diver is a risk to that diver, and his buddy.

If you want help finding out about freediving courses in your area, let me know and ill try help put you in contact with the right people.

  2. Moofy says

    I miss your videos man 🙂

  3. Great video for those of us eager to freedive and learn as much as we can to go safer and longer but can't afford a course.

    I especially liked the one on never exhaling. I always hear people say this but you're the first to say why.

    I always exhale. It allows me longer dives. As a newbie my dives are like a comfortable 2 mins with an exhale. So I really liked learning the problems with the exhale. I'm working on stopping this bad habit.

    Can someone please tell me as much as possible in as much detail as possible about exhaling vs holding the breath.

    Thank you.

    Never swim or ski dive or Scuba dive alone.Always have a competent partner dive buddy close.Always wear a wet suit or life vest,buoyancy compensator. I Love good snorkels., comfortable small bite mouthpiece.Wear a bright rubber hood, to be seen from a distance. Wear gloves, and a divers’ knife.Rubber shoes should be worn inside your flippers(fins).

    I don't dive in the ocean because I can't find a Buddy, so I have to train in a pool with life guards.

  9. mrberrybubbles says

    hello.
    first i would like to thanks you for all you're beautifull videos. they all makes me jalous about you're skills.
    second, i have to ask you a litle question. When you say ''never dive alone'', do you mean that you have a buddy every time with you (i see just one video were you are two freedivers)?
    sorry for my english, and please, continue to make us dream with your videos!!!

  16. PadiDiverHD Uncut says

    Luv your good advices, you are a nice person 🙂 Thankz mate 😉

  17. M Y says

    Good, except #3. Not true. There is nothing wrong with exhaling underwater to equalize buoyancy.

  18. Mantas says

    thats super usefull, i would never have thought myself some of these

  19. Aleksandar Petrovic says

  25. Deadboy5663 Gaming says

    If you can't exhale your lungs can explode… Lol

  26. Temren Alican says

    Wow I would always exhale to make it easier for me to sink in water. I didn't know it was risky. You might've saved my life thank you

  27. Luke Patterson says

    Thanks mate… I've just started spearfishing after moving to Fiji, have you heard of any good freedive teachers near Nadi? I know you're not supposed to go alone, but that's what I usually do, due to not having many mates here into spearing, but I don't go as far, and I can't dive deep and for long anyway.. 🙂
