Training & Safety – Liv Philip

I first figured out it was fun to hold my breath whilst guiding with Whalesharks in Australia . We helped researchers by diving beneath the sharks to feedback information. I’d worked as a Scuba Instructor for a number of years, in freediving i found yet another excuse to throw myself in the big blue sea. Back home I thought i’d better learn something about what i was doing & completed an AIDA 2* course at SaltFree Divers and was hooked. I’m an Instructor, freediver and occasional competition organiser. Freediving gives me an excuse to play in the water, it keeps you fit, can promote teamwork and self esteem, and I think most of all for me, it introduced me to an incredible community of people. I am happy to represent all Freedivers in the UK in my Capacity in Training & Safety, so please feel free to contact me with your queries, however big or small.
