Freediving El Hierro is the island’s first apnea diving center. Founded by me, Karsten Mohr, a certified freediving instructor from the apnea diving world federation AIDA.
I worked in the snow-, surf- and skate-industry for more than 20 years. Long before I started with board sliding, I was captivated by freediving. Over the years, I’ve perfected my diving. Today, I just love passing on my knowledge and skills. I wrote my thesis for the AIDA freedive instructor formation on another topic that I find equally fascinating: meditation and freediving – obviously fitting together very well. Go deeper inside and outside.
Freediving is really meditative thing for me, together with fun and joy. Meditation is nothing serious. The more relaxed you are and the more offline your brain is, the finer the dive in weightlessness. Pure joy and every time fascinating.
At Freediving El Hierro, you can learn a lot about ‘’free’’ freediving as a relaxing sport and a relaxed underwater experience by discvering nature.
Apnea diving also posseses a competitive element. It’s exciting to train in order to test your limits. But, at Freediving El Hierro, we like to stay on the sport’s more wondrous elements. That means having fun together up to a powerful depth of, after all, 40 meters. I can recommend the best places where I’ve learned my trade, for those interested in competitive sport.
I was fortunate to be trained by top international divers and excellent people. I take great pleasure in sharing my experience so you can create an excellent foundation to determine your own path afterwards: a relaxing indulgence in a challenging and fascinating water sport or diving deeper into the competitive sport with true basics.
