This one day course in total is an introduction to monofin swimming covering the necessary skills, techniques and knowledge necessary to start using the freediving monofin efficiently. Students will be introduced to different approaches to freediving with a monofin, exercises designed to work on style and training programs to develop strength, flexibility and skill in using the monofin. The course consists of three components. The first component is knowledge development in the classroom of approximately 2 hours. The second component is either pool based or confined water based (in a protected area in the ocean) practicing monofin freediving skills. This session is about 2 hours. Students have the option of completing the third and final component in the pool/confined water or the ocean. If the student wishes to undertake the final session in the ocean the student will also need to purchase an Ocean Fun Day session.
This freediving specialisation is typically offered on a one on one basis to individual students and is based on demand. While the use of monofins are encouraged it is still possible to undertake the course using smaller bifins and regular bifins. Please contact us to arrange suitable training times and dates.
On successful completion of this course the student is awarded the AIDA Monofin Freediver certification and is registered on the AIDA website Education Online System (EOS).
