FREE­D­IV­ING/MER­MAID ZONE

Scuba Diver Australasia - - Adek 2018 -

Vis­i­tors thronged the Free­d­iv­ing/Mer­maid Zone to sit in on pre­sen­ta­tions by ex­pert free­d­ivers, even strik­ing up chats with in­di­vid­ual speak­ers around the stage.

The speak­ers spoke of their love for the sport, their achieve­ments in the field, and many em­pha­sised the ac­ces­si­bil­ity of free­d­iv­ing for ca­sual divers – all that is needed to start free­d­iv­ing is sim­ply ba­sic train­ing. Speak­ers also show­cased the lat­est div­ing and un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy gear, and dis­cussed new trends such as un­der­wa­ter hocky and rugby. Many speak­ers also ex­pounded the im­por­tance of en­vi­ron­men­tal re­search and con­ser­va­tion.
