    Great post. Even though I am not a diver myself, I have many friends who are. There are some great points that you mention, which I am sure many divers treat as a second thought but which you point out are so important to a successful dive. I have forwarded this to my buddies to make sure that they are aware as well.

    I’d like to go scuba diving again. I did the Great Barrier Reef like 20 years ago. I’m kind of interested in freediving too – I guess a freediver might be able to make his air go a long way! I supose the key is keeping your heart rate low. Nice to read, keep it up!

      Hi Iain. There has been a lot of change over the last 20 years on the Great Barrier Reef and unfortunately, it has not been good. There are still really beautiful areas of the reef but some of it has died over the years. The idea of controlled breathing is NOT to hold your breath but get the most efficient transfer of air through your lungs with each breath. Keep your heart rate down is important to yes. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see u in the water.
