The workshop will be conducted by professional freediving coach Harry Chamas, dive instructor Charly Stringer, and the founder of Freedive Kelaa, Umair Badheeu.
Harry once stated, “As a coach, I believe in breaking diving down and mastering each aspect of freediving individually. This can be done by focusing on specific skills, the different stages of a dive or the mental processes that occur on a dive. I do the same with my own diving and this No Limits dive means I have experience of extreme depths before ever venturing therein the traditional disciplines. The dive itself was fantastic and I am honoured to have had this moment in the depths of the ocean. I plan to spend the next few years exploring new questions about my physical and mental capabilities and reach 100+m in CWT and FI. I would like to thank everyone I have spent time within the water. I have learned something from everyone and I thank the whole team here at Freedive Club Greece, David Tranfield and the British Freediving Association.”
Harry began freediving in Australia eight years ago and is a freediving coach. He set a national record last year in the Variable Weight freediving discipline reaching a depth of 105m. Harry Chamas and Charly Stringer are both based in Dahab, Egypt, and have been teaching and coaching divers for over seven and four years, respectively. Chamas holds the British National Records for No Limit and Variable Weight, at depths of 120m and 105m. Stringer is presently training to compete for the United Kingdom. According to Freedive Kelaa, she will train in Haa Alif Atoll during her stay in the Maldives.
