wtdxbWorld champion New Zealand freediver and world record holder William Trubridge, the world’s deepest man and the first man to freedive to 100 meters with no assistance of any kind is coming to Dubai, to hold a special freediving clinic from 3-6 June.

Anyone who enjoys snorkelling and the ocean realm can join this clinic, no previous freediving experience to learn with one of the world’s leading professional freediving instructors.

This course is also suitable for spearfishers, freediving instructors who would like to learn new coaching skills, and certified freedivers who want to have the extra “edge”.

The course will consist of practical sessions, theory and techniques of equalisation, including lung stretching exercises, components of yoga & pranayama, dry training exercises, and relaxation. The final day is a depth session of diving in Fujairah from Al Aqah.
