Jr FreediversWHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Please be sure to bring the items listed below:


1. Mask – A low volume freediving mask is preferable for all classes. The Aqua Lung Sphera or the Technisub Micro mask are some of the best masks on the market today.


2. Fins – Long Blade Freediving Fins or Snorkeling fins.


3. Snorkel – A simple J-tube snorkel will be best.


4. Wetsuit – A 3mm is suitable year round in Florida. Open cell is preferable.


5. Weights – Please have some small weights (1-2 lbs). It is better to adjust your buoyancy with smaller weights and also creates less drag.


6. Weight Belt- A rubber weight belt is necessary.


7. Freediving Computer – You will need a timing device. We highly recommend a freediving computer. The Aeris F.10, SporaSub SP1, and Beuchat Mundial are some of the best!
