Thank you all for sharing this life changing experience with me.
After Scuba diving for over 30 years and being a divemaster, I thought I could also freedive.
I even attempted to join the Fathomiers (LA Freediving and Spearfishing club).
Very quickly I discovered that not only was I uncompetitive, was unaware of what Shallow Water Black out was even about.
Looking back, I was taking a huge gamble with my life.
You have brought me to a "Life Changing Event".
Words cannot express my gratitude for you patience and perseverance to help me to to reach my goals.
But, I remind myself of the safety that you have ingrained in me, and will continue to study to perfect my skills.
I will even make Jesse practice the "Dozy Doe" on every dive [: > )
After taking some time to perfect my skills, I will return for Fii 2.
Most likely in Hawaii.
I hope you all have the personal sense of accomplishment that I am experiencing.
For those that have not reached your goal yet, keep working on what you have learned.
Thank god for Daniel's gift of instructing and patience.
I can not say enough about his professional level and ability to encourage others to be better than they thought they could be.
I can now call myself a Freediver!
