Whaleshark Icon Black.png

The Molchanovs Wave 2 freediving course advances your foundation by introducing new mental, equalization and diving techniques as you start diving further and deeper. With greater distance & depth, it will be important to start incorporating detail and precision to your physical technique and mental awareness while freediving. There will be two new freediving disciplines, Constant Weight No-fins, and Monofin technique (details below) to add to your freediving skillset. The course will also expand your knowledge on physical effects and phenomena that you may experience as you start diving deeper in safe manner.

At the end of the Wave 2 course, you will also walk away understanding how to train yourself to become more comfortable with further depth and distance, both physically and mentally.
