Two years of Performance Freediving

We’ve just received an update from Kirk Krack and the Performance Freediving Team:

For two years, Performance Freediving has been offering the highest quality freediving education while constantly improving our clinics. Our educational focus is on the building of safety and self-rescue skills, technique development, a high level of academic knowledge and training programs to mold a safe, comfortable and well-rounded recreational, spear fishing or competitive freediver.

The members of Performance Freediving have trained over 130 people from around North America and 14 different countries around the world and have received their highest praise and recommendations. We are very proud of all the friends we have worked with and we are always glad to welcome them back for a free refresher.

Since November of 1999, the members of the Performance Freediving Team and your instructors have gone on to refine their techniques which have culminated in them achieving the following world records; Brett LeMaster constant ballast (81meters / 267 feet), Martin Stepanek static apnea (8:06) and free immersion (90 meters / 295 feet) and Mandy Cruickshank no-limits (136 meters / 446 feet) world record holder and the ??deepest women in the world??.
