“We, four French 30-ish years old underwater passionates, spent 3 days with Emil in early May 2018. We all came with different levels of free diving experience, and different expectations: two of us had already been training for a year, one was a complete beginner, and I had some kind of empiric experience practicing spearfishing. Despite the very short time frame and heterogeneous audience, Emil managed to go beyond what we would have imagined. His natural confidence, extensive knowledge and strong professionalism enabled him to get the best from each of us.

After three open water sessions, we all managed to satisfy all the requirements for the SSI Level 1. Some of us even pushed their limits to amazing static chronos (4min40sec) and constant weight depths (25m), that they definitely wouldn’t have reached without Emil’s precious help and advices.

Moreover, the setting is as meaningful as perfect. A simple house on the coast line, integrated in its environment, at the end of the world, only one hundred meters away from the freedive spots. We almost felt like young Jedis undertaking an initiatory trip to meet Master Yoda.

We definitely recommend this amazing experience and wish all the best to Emil.”
