Why Every Freediver Needs a Lamzac

First of all, what is a Lamzac?
It is an air lounge that is so special because you don’t need to inflate it using your lungs; if you ever had to blow up one of these big air mattresses you will know that this is not something you want to do before freediving or any other physical activity!
The Lamzac needs very little air to get filled and you do that using your arms instead of your lungs, which makes it a very clever invention for outdoor lifestyle!

Rollei Actioncam Sponsors Freedive Dahab

At Freedive Dahab we have been using Rollei actioncams for our freediving activities. These are small cameras with great design, high performance and resolution; however the price is much lower when compared to other actioncams with the same specs, and the accessories are extremely affordable.
