Learning how to dive on a single breath seemed impossible! If I can do it, so can you. Keep reading 🙂


It flooded heavily while I was on the island of Koh Tao back in January 2017. The floods were so bad that 30+ people lost their lives. It was insane.

While I was there, I so happen to have my cameras with me and I shot my experience of being stuck on the island of Koh Tao during the worst floods the locals had ever seen in over 10 years. And because scuba diving was cancelled, I was given the option by Big Blue (diving operator) to do the freediving course.

Of course I didn’t want to waste my 2 week vacation which was meant for scuba diving. So I signed up.

It was incredible!

The freediving course was a 2-day course held by Big Blue in Koh Tao and it involved a classroom, swimming pool, and “ocean” component to complete the course. We learned how to effectively manage our heart rates, our breathing, kick strokes, and so forth, to maximise our time underwater.

I’m also a big fan of helping beginners get into great shape. Learn how to setup a basic weight lifting plan, or use smartphone apps to lose fat and build muscle.

It was a challenging but fun course!! And I highly recommend anyone that wants to push their physiological and mental limits. But, if you don’t want to do it but just want to see what it is all about, check out the video.
