Breathing & Apnea for Surfers

Online Surf Courses for ESA Members

Breathing and Apnea (breath-hold) seminar for surfers w/ Ricardo Taveira of Hawaii Eco Divers

April 27, 2020 - 7pm


In this seminar, you will learn proper diaphragmatic breathing technics to improve body oxygenation. More oxygen into your body means more focus, energy, and awareness. It also makes you hold your breath a lot longer.  Everyone can benefit from deep breathing exercises: surf competitors while surfing a heat, big wave surfers challenging bigger waves and all surfers who are willing to feel more comfortable in the ocean.

This seminar is a basic introduction to his full course "Apnea & Surf Survival Course"
