“The loveliest freedive duo you will meet!
I completed my Aida 3 with Dave and it was brilliant to have such an experienced and friendly instructor. Dave's teaching methods are really intuitive and he makes it really exciting while keeping you feeling very safe.
Charlie and Dave are wonderful people who will make you feel very welcome and excited to learn more about the amazing world of freediving! I would recommend anyone learning freediving for the first time or an advanced freediver wanting some extra coaching to contact these guys immediately!”
