Deepspot is running again with the beginning of February.!
Now officially it’s not a pool but…The Multi-zone Simulator Of Diving Conditions. Well…In strange times we’re living and it’s new norm slowly. At least we can dive again.
Our Freediving Team is trying to enforce as much privileges, rules and everything that can be helpful for our freediving clients.
Good news is that we gonna have more slots (entry hours) only for freedivers. Sometimes there’s a traffic in the tube. When scubas go for deeper dives it’s getting difficult for freedivers to maintain focus and relaxation (awarness of collision in the tube). All the bubbles that are coming out make not necessary pleasant current on the surface, not forgetting also about lack of visibility. Scuba divers have entry at full hours and freedivers on half’s. Bubble-makers have first 30 minutes to enter the tube. For rest of the time they should avoid the are and respect freedivers training. Sometimes it’s really difficult because people get really excited and forget about the rules. It’s hard to blame them because diving in Deepspot made you forget about everything and just immerse in pure happiness of diving. It’s made for it.
The slots only for freedivers:
In addition there’s discount for groups of certified diver dependent on number of people.
Also we are after first SSI Level I courses and still improving the way how to conduct them. Lately we had brain-storm and exchange of methods for ultimate approach to deal with equalization issues of first-timers. Looks very promising and I’m looking forward to check some new ‘tricks’.
One thing that I would like to lob is wetsuits for freedivers. According to actual rules wetsuits are forbidden due to risk of polluting the water with the stuff from outside. It’s reasonable but for freediving courses (buoyancy) and for some individual cases of people getting chill in 32 degrees water I think it should be allowed. In my opinion making a rule of having a ‘pool wetsuit’ that is max 2mm thick should be possible. I hope we can enforce it!
