Students wishing to rent or purchase equipment can do so on the first day of class from Dive 'N Surf.
What to do to prepare for the class? At least a week before the class, check out the 'EQ 101' article on my blog (https://www.socalspearit.com/single-post/2018/05/07/Equalizing-Your-Ears-101). Equalizing ability of the ears (not breathhold!) is the most common limiting factor for students when it comes to ocean work, and success in the class will depend on this skill. Even if you are an experienced scuba diver, please take a look--equalizing while freediving can be very different, and most students find it hugely beneficial to start early (a week or two before class) with a little bit of homework in this department.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS: AS A CONDITION OF PARTICIPATION IN THE CLASS, ALL STUDENTS MUST UNDERGO A CORONAVIRUS TEST WITHIN 4 DAYS OF CLASS START, AND SUBMIT PROOF OF NEGATIVE RESULT TO INSTRUCTOR, WHO WILL ALSO BE TAKING A CORONAVIRUS TEST. NO EXCEPTIONS. IN ADDITION, INDIVIDUALS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND FIRST RESPONDERS USING PPE) HAVING CONTACT WITH ANYONE TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS WITHIN 14 DAYS OF CLASS START WILL BE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS. As always, participation in any class activity is voluntary. By registering and participating in this class you hereby acknowledge that strict social distancing procedures may be impossible to follow during a normal freediving certification class such as this, and despite best efforts of instructors and vendors you assume any and all risk of contracting a communicable disease such as Covid - 19. Free tests are available from the County of Los Angeles, please plan ahead and make time for this as you may need to schedule it a day or two before taking it, and results can take a day or two, although often are available the next day. Instant result tests are available from various vendors and most clinics throughout the city, for a fee. Class size is limited to 6 students plus instructor, Lance Lee Davis.
