Freedivers are often minimalists in spirit. Instead of entering the water with a slew of scuba gear, they prefer to explore the sea with a set of fins and a mask. If you’re looking for a gift for a special freediver in your life, here are a few items to consider.
If you can’t find anything freediving related — opt for something mermaid themed. After all, freedivers are as close as you can get to being a real-life mermaid.
Practical and useful, every diver needs a gear bag to safely transport their gear from one dive site to the next. This bag is also waterpoof, making it a perfect all-around bag for clothes and other necessities a freediver needs on a dive trip. At 135 liters capacity, this dive bag can comfortably fit two sets of dive gear with extra room for clothes.
2. Course or training
There’s no item or piece of gear that can top excellent training when it comes to freediving. Enroll your freediving friend into the next level of their course, or splurge on some one-on-one lessons from a qualified freediving coach. Many coaches offer video analysis where the freediver can look closely at what they could improve on.
If you know a freediver who is just starting out, this freediving set is complete with a mask, snorkel, fins, and fin bag. These Gara Professional LD fins by Cressi are what many of the world’s top freedivers once learned to dive with — as they’re very flexible and durable. This set is perfect as an upgrade to mis-matched or tired gear, or makes for a great starter set. Make sure you get the foot size of your freediver before ordering.
This dive buoy was made with freedivers in mind. A pocket in the middle of the float is ideal for storing snacks, spare masks, and water, while the flag alerts boats of your presence. The handles and SS ring clips around the buoy are perfect for relaxing, safety diving, and clipping extra gear as needed. The nylon cover keeps the float durable and is quick-drying.
