Feedback: I had Nico Testa as my Freediving Instructor in Kona. He was awesome. I am a novice free diver, one other student was scuba certified and the other received the class as a birthday gift - Three different levels of experience. Despite our diverse backgrounds on the subject, Nico was 'spot-on' with all of us and made sure that we were safe. He is a great teacher to address different skill levels. Thanks to Nico, I am able to reach 20 meters comfortably, feel much more confident in recognizing and assisting in shallow water blackout situations.
"Fins-off' to Nico. This is a must have course for any freediver.
Feedback: The course is comprehensive and taught me so much. I have so much more confidence in the water now and know how to safely practice this sport. Ryan Keene is a gifted teacher and amazing diver.

Level 1 Freediver
Feedback: Hi Nathan and Martin:
I enjoyed the level 1 freediver course immensely. I'd recommend the course to anyone. The only bummer was when our time in the ocean ended yesterday :).
I was surprised by how much I learned during the course even though I have taken a level 1 & 2 course though a different organization. My freediving has already improved and will continue to do so as I apply what I've learned in the course.
I look forward to taking other FII courses (including, but not limited to, level 2) and to hopefully attending the freediving camp in Kona in the next year or so.
Thank you both very much!
Feedback: Joe was an awesome instructor and made the course both enjoyable and informative. He made my classmates me feel very comfortable and safe in the water. I took away a lot of good breathing and dive techniques as well as a new, educated outlook on freediving safety. If I were to recommend the course to a friend I would definitely recommend Joe.

Feedback: Great instructor and freediver. Has a teaching background, you can see it in his teaching style and gives positive feedback when you do well, of course will correct you if you don't. He went above & beyond his way to ensure course takes place despite weather challenge. I highly recommend Errol P if you plan to take an FII course.
