"I want to be a safety freediver!"

We'd love you to join our team as a freedive safety volunteer! All safety freedivers, regardless of previous experience, must hold a freediving certification to a minimum level of PFI Safe Buddy/FII Basic Freediving Safety or equivalent. If you are not certified and would like to participate as a safety freediver for Kikaha Apnea Competition 2017, contact Shell Eisenberg at shell@KonaFreedivers.com to organize your safety certification course prior to the competition. 

We'll see you at the pool!
