Freediving

Back to overview

 

In the profile subject Freediving, the art of underwater hunting is hidden. In this discipline, we will hunt fish with harpoon under the surface of the water without the use of cylinders. Everyone can participate and if you are a fish in the water, with the courage to try a different sport, freediving is just the thing for you.  We have classes three times a week. In the beginning, we will have one day with theory, one day in the swimming pool and one day in the water where we will hunt. We will be freediving during the day, however, it will also be possible to participate in freediving during the even, which is voluntary. It is a very special experience to swim through the water and outwit one's prey.

Freediving is built up around underwater hunting and as the name implies it is an activity where you are hunting under water. It is a sport that includes different elements such as shooting abilities with a harpoon, knowledge about the nature of the fish and the ability to move correctly in the water to hunt efficiently. It's important to keep a cool head and make the right decision. There will be evenings where we will go hunting, make a bonfire and talk about our experiences and stories from hunting. In Denmark, there is a great variation of different fish and every year hunters shoot fish up to 10 kg. To prepare a hunt can be interesting the excitement and happiness to shoot one's target goal is amazing. However, telling the story about the hunt afterwards around the bonfire is just as amazing as the hunt itself.

Underwater hunting can occur anytime of the day and at any time of the year. We will try to go freediving during different times of the day to get as many different experiences as possible.
