Surfers (especially big wave surfer) need to have the skills to hold their breath for an extended period of time during a wipeout. This is where freediving training comes into play.
Surfing survival training involves exercises that target your ability to cope with higher levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) or lower levels of oxygen (O2). During a wipeout, your body (and mind) will be trained to relax, not panic and find your way out while holding your breath.
If you wish to learn exercises that will maintain your freediving endurance and adaptations while out of the water, this training is for you.
This style of training as long been promoted by big wave surfers like Laird Hamilton and Kelly Slater. Surfing Survival training can safe your life in the worst of situations.
