Extraordinary secret spot. Some days of the year at a certain hour we can dive in a perfect blue beam of light.
A beautiful encounter with a cuttlefish (Sepia). It is amazing how they can change their color and how deep they can look into your eyes. That´s why i like them better free than fried.
Maybe a once in a lifetime experience. Lately we had a fascinating encounter with a biiiiig smalltooth sandtiger shark (odontaspis ferox). A very rare species to be seen. Normally these sharks live in depths around 1000m. Only in a few summers single females get closer to accessible depths at 2 or 3 spots of El Hierro´s Coastline. Check […]
JIPIEEE! The new Logo! The word “Freediving” and the plunger are symbolizing the dive into the “Big Blue” . The green mono-fin is in shape of the green island El Hierro. White, green and blue are also the colors of El Hierro´s flag. Come and you´ll see why. VIVAAA! La nueva Marca! La palabra “Freediving” y el buceador simbolizan […]
Surprising Dynamic Session. Lion´s successful aqua-dynamic trial for his AIDA 2** certification was accompanied by hundreds of curious Barracudas. The dart shaped Barracudas are amongst the fastest swimmers in the ocean. Despite their aggressive look, they are harmless … at least for us humans … not so for sardines.
One of the numerous beautiful dive sites of El Hierro lately offered a glimpse on two rarely seen “natives”. A Sepia and a Leopard Eel. The Sepia are difficult to discover because they are somehow the “chameleons of the sea”. Within a second they can switch their camouflage. The Leopard Eel doesn´t leave his hideaways too many times. […]
At one of these dives with Kolja and Tobias we did find the rare Locust Lobster (scyllarus arctus). He lives in crevices at a depth between 4m and 100m. In our case we took the foto of this bizarre and crusty fellow with his bright violet outline at 4m . It can get as big as your forearm […]
Together with Tobias and Kolja we had some amazing Dives alongside the coast. Arches, tunnels and caves. Morays, burrfish, island groupers, triggerfishes and many more.
Tobias back on El Hierro after a couple of months to do his 3*** formation. Pushed it to the limits and passed “summa cum laude”. Father then required, longer and deeper than necessary. And very close to the maximum depth which ist permitted for 3***. Respect.
Spectacle of nature and colors. Heavy rainclouds meet bluebird skies. Espectáculo de naturaleza y colores en la costa norte. Nubes de la lluvia encuentran un cielo despejado. Naturschauspiel an der Nordküste. Strahlend blauer Himmel trifft auf dicke Regenwolken.
