You may not know all the similarities and the differences between freediving and surfing. To begin the adrenaline in surfing and the suppression of heart rate in freediving. In surfing there are the presences of a board, waves and the authentic coif but in freediving, it’s totally the contrary, with well, swim caps and calm waters. Yes there are a lot of differences, but what about the similarities?

Moreover motivation, ambition, and personal goals are present in both parties. Practice both activities must be very efficient.
