Diving right into 2021, on January 10th Freedive Kelaa is organizing Pulse, a freediving workshop that will enable entry level free divers to sharpen their skills to go deeper. The workshop is programmed to focus on skills that a level 1 or 2 freediving course normally does not have time to improve. Relaxation, stretching for depth and figuring out equalisation issues that vary individually. Pulse will be held in Hulhumale’, Maldives, in January 2021 at Island Beach House.

The workshop will be conducted by Harry Chamas, Charly Stringer and Umair Badheeu.
