Freediving El Hierro is the island’s first apnea diving centre. Founded by me, Karsten Mohr, a certified freediving-instructor-trainer from the apnea diving world federation AIDA. This is the highest instructor level. This instructor level enables the training of other freediving instructors.
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 discovering nature.
Apnea diving also possesses 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. This means that we can have fun together in courses down to a depth of 50m. For those who want to get into competitive sports after that, I develop tailor-made plans.
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 a competitive sport with true basics.
