Brand New Freediving Center in Cyprus

Hot climate, crystal clear sea and hence services on European level. This is what makes Cyprus prior to e.g. Egypt. No dirty streets without any plants, no various shops barkers which can easily make you angry. There is a new freediving centre in Protaras resort on Cyprus opened from June. Partnership of Silent Touch – apnea4all, a freediving school and a hotel Cavo Maris was built up ensuring a high standard of all the services. The hotel has a quality rear and a deep interest in keeping up its own high standards. Silent Touch – formerly Czech Freediving School which recently became international - feels that just the partnership itself confirms quality of its performance.

Freediving is really an ancient sport. Every child spends the first 9 months of his or her life in the liquid which is similar to sea water. Holding breath for several seconds when submerged to water is a common ability of any newborn child. It seems that we lose this skill when we start to walk. Awakening of long ago forgotten reflex is the most important part of freediving lectures. It makes free-diving either to depths or in the swimming pool possible. The word apnoe has its origin in the Greek word “apnoa” and literally it means “breathless”. Connection of this word with water doesn’t come from original but became the synonym for freediving in a modern sport terminology. It means single in-breath diving without using the scuba or any other equipment allowing the breathing in the water.

Services and rear

Silent Touch – apnea4all offers two systems of teaching – Apnea Academy and Russian Freediving Federation. There are three instructors capable of giving lectures in four languages – Czech, English, Greek and Russian. Personal trainings in freediving and own educational programs of freediving are obvious. Base involves a rental of equipment, weight, buoyes and ropes. There is several training localities depending of the freediver’s skills and experiences.

There is school locality of 12 meters of depth prepared for beginners and Level 1 students just in front of the hotel. 40 meters locality is 10 minutes by car. School does the transfer and it is already included in the price of course or training. 40 and more metres locality is accessible by zodiac (5 minutes) from the hotel beach. All the courses and training programs contain the services of an instructor, preparation of the locality (buoyes, ropes, weight and transport) and videocoaching etc.
