To get your the first Wave, you will have to perform 1 minute and 30 seconds of static apnea and dive to a depth of 12 to 20m for dynamic apnea.
Now, the target for the Molchanovs Freediving Phuket Wave 1 Course would be to complete these objective with an additional challenge : to dive to the depth of 20 meters during 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Visited Islands with Molchanovs Freediving Phuket Wave 1

Koh Racha Yai, is the largest of the two islands located off the Southeastern coast of Phuket.
Different kinds of corals can be spotted here with the Staghorn coral predominating in many areas. Marine life is rich and species such as Barracuda, Tuna and Milk Fish can be found in this area.

The better place for diving is located on the East coast along the hard coral reef where there are shipwrecks and good drifts.

There are several interesting dive sites around Koh Racha Yai including Lucy’s ReefReef “Do little Do” where Stonefish and Batfish may be chanced upon. Not forgetting Marla’s mystery, a wreck that became home to Morays, Groupers and Lionfish.

Discover the physics of freediving

During free diving course, you will experience physicals conditions that affects your body. Indeed, when you dive, a plenty of phenomenon activate in your body. You will learn what’s happening, how to appreciate it and how to avoid risks and dive better

> Feel the pressure

You won’t have to dive too deep to feel the pressure but the deeper you go, the better your will feel the pressure. At 10m deep, the pressure is 1 bar ata, it means that your feel twice as much pressure than when you’re out of the water. Every 10m deep, you add 1 bar, as at 30m deep you would feel 4 atmospheres!

– Why do we care about pressure?
Pressure doesn’t affect liquid but it can compress gas, that is one of the reason why we « feel »pressure. The gas volume reduces of one half at 10meters deep. As the gas volume reduces inversely and proportionally to the pressure, it means that i twill be one third of is size at 20m deep and keep going.

The body is almost fully composed of water, as it doesnt compress, you will feel the pressure where you have air spaces in your body (ears, lungs, mask, wet suit…). During the freediving course, you will learn how to keep these air space in balance with the surrounded pressure, and manage to dive deeper without feeling pain because of the pressure.

About your senses

First of all, depth affects your sight. The first way it does it is because of the water reflexion that bend light rays, that phenomenon is even stronger when you go deeper. The second reason why your sight is affected is because depth absorb the light rays, as your perception of colours is very different, as it disappears. Very relaxing for your brain even if he still makes the difference because a compensation response.

The second effect on your senses is about earing. You have already noticed that sound is different underwater. Depth is a very quiet world; you may can hear your own heartbeat.
In the water, the sound travels faster than in air. It makes things sound much more closer than they are. As the sound reaches your both ears at same time, you can’t determine where does the sound come from. As when you hear a sound, it sounds like being all around you!

About feeling of temperature

In the water, heat is absorbing faster than air. So you have to control your body temperature wearing a wet suit to stay comfortable during an extended period. During free diver course, you will also learn how to choose the right wet suit, the one that could make you stay in the water indefinitely.

About orientation

Buoyancy reduces your perception of gravity, that is why you may be disoriented. Where is up? Where is Down? You will learn how to maintain you orientation visually.

With this course, you would be put into practise the different techniques that you have learnt in level one and of course to refine it. The big step towards real diving in apnea!

The big step towards real diving in apnea!Learning ProcessThis Molchanov Freediving Wave 1 course is the first step to understand why diving in apnea is very well-appreciated in the world of diving.
      In fact, with this course, you would progress in 4 steps:
      > Theory section where you would be able to learn the principles of diving in apnea
      During this step you will mainly learn about the freediving physics. It’s very interesting to discover how depth can affect all your senses and how you body react to freedive immersion
      Pool Sessions where you would be able to learn breathing techniques for which you would put into practise: Static Apnea ( objective : 90 seconds) and dynamic apnea ( objective : 25 meters). The objective in confined water it’s to make you using to hold your breath while swimming and improved your apnea skills. After that, it will be way more easier for you to reach the depths in open water freedive session.
      > Open water sessions with an objective of constant weight apnea of 20 meters.
      Once you got the skill to reach SSI freediver objectives, you can go in open water and put in practice all you just learnt to reach 10 meters deep and start feeling the sensations of freedivers

       Using the Freediving GearYou would need :

      Apnea Mask
      Fins( Your instructor may allow you to use a monofin)
      Apnea Wetsuit
      Weight belt
      Swimwear
      Apnea diving computer
      Surface Signaling Device

      It’s very important to learn how to use the freediving gear correctly. Wear the correct wetsuit, the good fins, know how to quickly defog your mask makes the difference in your diving skills. Moreover confort, it’s important to know how to use the gear for safety. Indeed you must’nt wear a overweighted belt for exemple.Pre-requisites
      To be at least 12 years of age
      Able to swim well
      Physically fit
      Dive experience not necessary
