To be able to survive in big waves you have to be as prepared as possible. You are never in control of the ocean, anything can happen. You want to be as ready as you can be, to survive if something doesn't goes as you expected.
For this reason I decided to take the Apnea and Surfing Survival Training with Hawaii Eco Divers. Two intense days of training and understanding to control your body and mind. Learning to maximize your oxygen, so you can survive in critic situations was so important.
Those two days were such an amazing experience training and learning alongside great watermen and waterwomen.
At the end you realize how much potential and how incredible the human body is, how much we are made to endure if we know how to use it.
I really recommend to anyone thats constantly in the ocean specially in big waves, to take the training.
