Being a recreational athlete for over 50 years (I’m 63), I was a little cautious about what risks would exist throughout 3 days of ocean diving (it’s a 4 day course), but Ted engineers every risk down to a very manageable level, making each student more comfortable, relaxed, and ready for challenge. Moreover, he encourages you to discover your own comfort level, evaluates your performance and then offers sound strategies, enabling you to make immediate positive corrections.
By adhering to the highest safety standards possible, Ted Harty empowers his students to explore where their true potential lies, and provides constant support in the form of constructive correction and positive reinforcement.
With over 50 years of embracing almost every land, sea, and air based recreational pursuit, I’ve been through many tech schools, workshops, certification and skills acquisition courses, and Ted Harty’s Immersion Freediving Programs are, in my opinion, one of the safest, organized, and most empowering experiences I have ever had. Everyone experienced dramatic improvement over this 4 day course–some reached ocean depths on a single breath of over 100 ft., others extended their breath hold capacity to over 4:30, and we all discovered how to dive deeper, reach our maximum depth more relaxed & comfortable, stay longer, and spear more fish, much, much safer! Thanks Ted! Your Immersion Freediving Course ROCKS!
If you are interested in diving safer and increasing your bottom time I highly recommend enrolling in Ted Harty’s Immersion Freediving Intermediate Class. I should have taken this class years ago, as it provided hard examples of the consequences of unsupervised freediving – which can be lethal. At Immersion Freediving, you are forced to learn the right techniques to become a better and safer free diver. In only 4 days, I reached personal bests both in the pool (static apnea) and in the ocean (maximum depth), and it never felt hard. I could do all of my dives (80FT+) in a very comfortable and relaxed state of mind. Ted has proven competitive free diving skills, is a natural teacher, and genuinely cares about the development of his students.
I look forward to the next opportunity to learn more at Immersion Freediving.
