About Freedive International

ring-white

Freedive International was founded by two record holder freedivers who made of freediving a lifestyle and started a freediving school in 2004, Freedive Dahab, which became one of the most well-known schools in the world, for the quality of their courses, the professional and experienced staff of instructor. In 2013 we expanded and became partners of a busy school in Koh Tao, Thailand, and in 2014 we co-founded the first freediving school in Zanzibar. In the summer  2015 we will start 2 new schools in the beautiful Greek islands of Lemnos and Lesvos.

We teach courses of all levels up to instructor trainer courses, arrange several freediving events, training camps, safaris, competitions, record attempts and more.

Freedive International was founded by two record holding freedivers who have made freediving a lifestyle.

Linda

Linda

Co-Founder

Linda started freediving in late 2002, when she moved to Dahab, but only started competing in 2005. During her first competition she broke 3 Italian depth records. She kept breaking her own records until 2007, when she gave up competing and focused more on growing her freediving school which she owns together with Lotta Ericson, swedish freediver and former world record holder.
Linda became Aida instructor trainer in 2006 and SSI instructor trainer in 2010 and certified about 100 instructors. She is also a high level judge for freediving competitions and have judged 3 world championships and few world record attempts. In 2012 she started training and competing again, passing the 80 meters mark in constant weight, and setting 3 new italian records in Variable Weight (100m), Constant Weight (82m) and Free Immersion (70m).
Linda is now spending several months a year travelling in between her freediving schools.

Lotta

Lotta

Co-Founder

Lotta left Sweden and moved to Dahab in late 2003 and started Freedive Dahab in 2004. Back then seeing a freediver in Dahab was a rarity. That is how she became friends with Linda, and the two of them had no other choice than start training together. Back then freediving was a very small and unknown sport and the request for courses was very low, so she had the time to train intensely. She broke the Static World Record in 2004 and she also held most of the Swedish Records for a long time, until Freedive Dahab became a busy freediving centre and she focused mainly on forming new instructors. Lotta became SSI instructor training director in 2014, which is the highest qualification a freediving professional can achieve, and she is spending most of her time teaching instructor and trainers between her school in Dahab and the one in Thailand.
