That’s why we’ve created the Competition Workshop, a three-day class that covers everything you need to know about freediving competitions, including the rules of AIDA (International Association for the Development of Apnea), the specific rules of the Azul Freediving Challenge, and essential tips for success.

Here’s what the workshop offers over three days:

  • Discover the Azul Freediving Challenge: Find out all about our unique competition and what makes it special.
  • Mastering the Basics: Get familiar with the fundamental rules of AIDA to avoid disqualification.
  • Stretching Exercises: Prepare your body for freediving with flexibility exercises.
  • Practical Training: Practice diving to depth on our specialized platform, just like during the competition.

Day 2: Improving Techniques

  • Understanding the Point System: Learn how points are awarded in competitions and how to maximize your score.
  • Avoid Common Mistakes: Identify and avoid the typical errors that can impact your performance.
  • Exploring Different Techniques: Learn about various freediving techniques to enhance your skills.
  • The Importance of Coaching: Discover the benefits of coaching and how it can help you improve.
