Do you want to practice the freediving discipline in which more depth is achieved? Do you want to do it safely?

The SSI Variable Weight Freediving Specialty gives you the techniques to make it possible!

This Specialty teaches the freedivers how to descend with the help of a ballast weight and how to ascend using their own power. Despite being one of the most extreme freediving disciplines, it gives the freediver a fast and relaxed descent, saving most of the energy for the ascent to the surface.

The main techniques in this course are based on breathing, equalisation and flexibility, main aspects for the body to be able to assume the pressure that can be achieved and the descent speed.

The course entails a session with theory and two practice sessions in the sea in which an experienced freediving instructor will lead the students to achieve the perfect techniques.

The duration of the course can be one day or two days, depending on the student's availability.

You will get your SSI freediving Variable Weight specialty certification once you’ve finished the course.

Freedive l'Estartit performs this course at our facilities in l'Estartit, Costa Brava, Girona, Spain, unless we indicate a different location in our freediving courses calendar, published here.

And if you want to go further and become a Variable Weight Specialty instructor, we also teach the course for it in the school.

And if you are coming by plane, train or bus and you need transfer to our scuba diving or freediving centers, you can contract the transfer service from the Girona Airport, Girona Bus & Train Station or Flaçà Train Station, through us. Ask for the conditions!!
