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.
Feedback: This was a great course taught by Matthew. You will learn a lot and GREATLY increase your comfort in the water!

Feedback: Matt was very professional, while still being friendly and approachable by the students. I went from 45sec/1min breath holds before the course, to a 3min breath hold during the static apnea portion of the course. Having never been in blue waters before, it was an amazing experience to be able to not only see it, but also dive to 50ft depths. I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in the sport, and I also highly recommend Matthew Pasa as an instructor. He taught the fundamentals very well, while always keeping safety as a goal. Very happy with my experience!
