PURPOSE OF THE COURSE
In the RAID Surf Survival course you acquire the proper skills and knowledge to prepare you to handle wipe-outs when surfing in the most relaxed and safest manner possible. You will develop skills necessary to train your body to be more efficient with oxygen, gain better respiration and muscle flexibility and learn new skills to remain calm during hold down situations.
This programme is broken into two sections:
FIRST SECTION - THEORY
This is the theory or academic section, which any person may take and complete, followed, without obligation, the Practical Section which is the session where you can learn, with your Instructor, the underwater skills necessary for this level of training and complete your certification.
When you purchase this programme on-line you are effectively purchasing the access for 6 months to the theoretical content, knowledge reviews and exam for this level of diver training, which consists of downloadable PDF manuals with detailed information.
There is such a wealth of information in these comprehensive manuals and is well worth the cost alone!
RAID provides you with more information and knowledge development than any Instructor led lectures only or short video can provide in a limited time period generally offered.
Purchase this course and you will receive the comprehensive academic training package, without the need to complete the practical session (no obligation).
The on-line academic training package includes:
Quick Quiz and Exam (open book)
6 month access to manuals (can download)
SECOND SECTION - PRACTICAL TRAINING
With your RAID Surf Survival Instructor
Confined water - minimum 3 sessions
This is where the theory goes into practice, the core freediving techniques that you will use for a lifetime while surfing are developed during the first sessions, proper breathing and relaxation and safety are covered, the confined water sessions are like an open water simulator, this gives you the chance to become comfortable with the Freediving skills before taking them into the Surf.
Upon successfully passing the practical training you receive:
World Recognized Freediver Certification
Surf Survival certification E or C-card
Unrestricted access to manuals
Remember you can purchase the manuals now without any obligation to complete the practical training!
We must point out that the practical training cost is not included in the online fee. This cost must be discussed between yourself and the appointed RAID Dive Centre / Instructor who will complete the practical training.
