Performance Freediving International (PFI) have for the past few years packed up and headed down to Grand Cayman for a couple of weeks of training, records and competitions. This year the event named “Deja Blue” starts on May 8th – 14th with training for the event already started on April 30th.
The freediving disciplines at this years 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 competition competitors will be able to make attempts during 5 ocean days and 5 pool days. They earn points as follows and the winner will be the diver with the overall highest point score in all disciplines.
