Translated from Swedish: “Freediving; An experience out of the ordinary and an instructor; Emil as having the greatest degree of commitment, professionalism, humility and knowledge gave us experiences and insights that we did not know existed. One of our eight great days in Romblon, we spent at Dumagat Freedive with Emil. He gave us the first insights and experiences in freediving’s precious art. He did it with panache. His peace, harmony and pedagogy impressed, and he got us, but we really do not understand how it happened, that the mental training and relaxation exercises to hold our breath for as long as we before thought would be totally impossible. After our exercises on land and on yoga mats, we spent several hours in the water. There, about 100 meters from the shore and at a buoy as a starting point, we made the descent one after the other. The feeling to dive down along the vertical rope is hard to describe. Even more indescribable feeling was that, after a number of attempts to reach ten meters deep and remain there for a while and then give yourself up to the surface again. Magical experience! Thanks Emil for your patience! See you again next year!”
