Competitions and Records


Many people enjoy competitive freediving. In general competitions involve “Constant Weight” and “Static Apnea” events. Points awarded for each event are added up to produce an overall winner. “Dynamic Apnea” is often included as a seperate event.


Records are set in all 8 competive categories. Generally record attempts are made during competitions or at special events. Attempts at events like “No-limits” where the depth is very great can be expensive to organise and are made infrequently. The 8 disciplines are:

  • Constant Weight
  • constant weight no fins
  • constant weight bi- fins
  • Static Apnea
  • Dynamic Apnea
  • dynamic bi fins
  • dynamic no fins
  • Free Immersion
  • Variable Weight
  • No-limits
