Simo Kurra

Simo Kurra is a Finnish freediving enthusiast, instructor and co-author of the book "Freediving". He's been diving since 2003 in almost any form or shape. "Just as long as my eyes and ears are under water and I'm not breathing, almost anything goes". His passion is just experiencing the sensations that go with the perfect dive, and his mission is to make freediving accessible to others.
