Variable Weight is a fun way to practice freediving. But mostly it is a very useful tool for learning or perfecting your deep equalisation. This is due to two reasons: firstly because of the little effort on the descend and secondly the ascent is much easier due to diving without a weight belt. There are also different ways to perform Variable Weight freediving, and different kinds of set-up depending on several factors. Some of these ways can be unsafe in certain places or conditions, and during the course not only you will get to practice several Variable Weight dives for yourself but you will also learn how to prepare a set up for yourself and your buddy if you want to keep implementing this kind of diving to your training.

Course content:

  • 2 open water sessions during which you learn proper set-ups configurations for variable weight diving using bottom weights instead of a “sled”, and practice diving with this methods during a few shallower dives to build up depth.
  • 1 theory session during which you will learn what to keep in mind when you want to plan a Variable Weight session independently from you instructor, all the safety concerns related to this, and the equipment needed.
  • 1 stretching session to help your body getting used to the pressure increase encountered at depth (as diving with variable weight a freediver will reach more easily a greater depth)

Price: 115 euro for single student. If at least 2 people join the price is 100 euro per person. The price includes digital SSI certification and transportation to the Blue Hole (if a greater depth than 40 meters is required).
