Our Zero to Hero Wim, about how he found freediving and his experience at @Freedivegili
”When I was considering scubadiving 4 years ago, a friend told me: "Wim, I think you should try freediving, you'll like it". I didn't really pay attention back then because I could not yet understand what it was all about. Few years later, I tried spearfishing on holiday and it kind of rang a bell. I went online, ran to the library and found a bunch of inspirational material. Quickly, freediving became an obsession even though I had not really freedived yet. I started to do mainly dry and pool training (since I was not living close to the sea), but I knew I wanted to immerse myself in this intriguing sport so I decided to go for the Zero-to-Hero program of Freedive Gili. Now, after 3 months of hard and intense training, it's proven that it was the right choice to make. I enjoyed every single day of training, being surrounded by like minded people, and the obsession grew even bigger. Viktor has guided us with an exceptional level of care and professionalism and has put a lot of fun into our instructor course. One that I will remember for a very long time!
A big thank you to my freedive buddies and the whole FreediveGili team for making my time here an unforgettable experience !
Now, it's time to head back home and start unravelling the cold mysteries of the belgian quarries...”
Thanks Wim! You will be an excellent Freedive Instructor!
