Already a RAID Scuba Instructor, Tony is now qualified to take RAID Freediving courses based out of our Dive Center in Silverdale.

This is what Tony had to say about the experience:

“I am so pleased to become a part of the WSF RAID Freediver family. My partner Kim and I had the most amazing time with Mike Wells and Alana Caskey at Freedive HQ Philippines. The teaching and experience we gained was absolutely top class. Not to mention such an idyllic setting that is Cebu for completing this life changing course.Kim has really taken the Bull by the horns after completing her WSF Advanced Freediver rating and is talking about competing in competitions, she is always keen to get down to the local pool and train together! Before starting the course, she had some reservations and never dreamed she would be able to hold her breath for so long or dive to 25m! It has been truly fascinating to see her become so empowered and unlock these super human abilities! As for me completing the WSF Level 1 Freediving Instructor program, I am very much looking forward to being the first in NZ to offer such an amazing product with all its up to date, and safe practices. And developed by such a legend that is Mike Wells! I will surely be back in Freedive HQ Philippines soon to upgrade my certification to WSF Advanced Freediving Instructor. WSF RAID Freediver Level 1 Courses are now available at Kiwi Divers Hibiscus Coast
