AIDA Develops Methods To Teach Freediving To Visually Impaired Divers

Know someone who is visually impaired but you think they’d really dig freediving? Well, some Russian members of the sport’s governing body have developed a course to teach non-sighted divers.

Nikolay Kanivets and Konstantin Borisov figured out the best way to communicate freediving concepts to those who can’t see, and have since provided teaching techniques and a course manual that AIDA will publish.

While developing the course, Kanivets and Borisov discovered something that’s useful even for divers who can see: Blindfolding them tended to result in better dynamic swim times.
