Put simply, watermanship training aims to broaden participants ocean awareness and safety. It combines principles from freediving, lifesaving, sailing, ocean swimming, surfing and more.
Watermanship training is for everyone, at all levels of fitness and ocean knowledge.
Performing well under stress, having heightened situational awareness, dealing with high heart rate and high CO2 events whilst on breath hold, being extremely competent with all the elements of watermanship safety and rescue and having the ability to do all this on instinct is what this program is designed to achieve.
Challenging situations that are encountered in the ocean as a waterman or water woman are broken down step by step, to gain an insight into the actual processes that are taking place.
This theory is then backed up by fun, challenging and realistic training in a safe environment to put this knowledge into practice.
