Deja Blue Deux by Performance Freediving International

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands — PFI will be back on Grand Cayman training athletes from around the globe April 30-May 6th, in preparation of their annual freediving competition May 7-13th. The freediving disciplines at this year’s event include the following:

  • Constant Weight – Diving down and back up under ones own power wearing a fin
  • Free Immersion – Using the line, one pulls themselves down to depth and back up
  • Constant No-Fins – Without the use of fins or the line, one swims down to depth and back again
  • Static Apnea– In the pool the diver flats face down holding their breath as long as possible
  • Dynamic Apnea – In the pool with a fin on one sees how many lengths they can swim underwater on a single breath
  • Dynamic Apnea without Fins – On a single breath and without the use of fins, one sees how many lengths of a pool they can swim

During the seven day event, competitors will be able to make attempts during 5 ocean sessions and 5 pool sessions.  The winner will be the freediver with the overall highest point score in all disciplines in agreggate.

Then from May 14-16 throttle up for the high octane fun!
