If you want to improve your surf safety you should sing up for a course with Performance Freediving International President and Founder Kirk Krack. These boys from Oakley took part Krack’s two-day course to better prepare themselves for the type of hold-downs and life-threatening situations that go hand in hand with competitive surfing and the results are remarkable.
During the course the professional surfers expanded their safety skills learning the science of how the body is affected by a lack of oxygen and then got in the pool to put into action their live-saving education. Learning to stay submerged for upwards of four or five minutes isn’t exclusively for NAVY Seals. One of the dudes added almost four minutes his breath hold after applying what he learned in the course:
