Freedivers - Sambas and Blackouts

Hey Guys,

Great video on Sambas and Blackouts, what causes them, what to do, what are the tell tale signs.  Video is about 35 minutes, but if you are serious about it, then it pays to know this stuff.

Cheers,

Adam

Very educational video that one.  Watched it a while ago and agree, it willl save lives.  I like solo diving, but only with that big heavy tank on my back.

Hope you have a buddy up there Ads!

Cheers Pete

 Good on you for posting adz! 

alot of freedivers dnt understand the blackout/samba side of things. We learnt alot during our Apnea course down here that Lucky Tim & I attended. Anyone who dives alone is asking for trouble and it dosnt matter what depth of water your in trouble can happen. Anyone on here wanting to get into the sport should really sit down and watch this link

macca yes there are apnea course's run by some dive places. The local dive shop here organised one here last yr with Mike Wells for the first course. Managed to sneak into that one and it was a blast. Not sure on your location mate but abit of searching on google or something and you may find what your looking for

ssi do a freediving course, seen it advertised recently, PDA are ssi endorsed.

IMO very well worth doing, more dangerous than scuba diving if you don't know signs and symptoms and what not to do :)
