DISTANCE MOUTHFILL COURSE
MEET THE COACH
Freediving and Coaching is my PASSION. My talent as a Diver and Coach is my ability to break down a complex skill or set of skills and master each one in a controlled manner. Over the years I have moved away from teaching traditional freediving courses and preferred to use my knowledge and experience to help divers with a more individual approach, focusing on mastering each stage of diving before moving onto the next.
I have seen from experience personally and from observation coaching others that so many divers are being held back by a lack of basic skills, If these skills are mastered the only thing that will stop their progression is the amount of time they have to dedicate to depth training.
Whatever your drive, however high your hopes are, I will be there to match them, I will be there to support you in your journey.

Dahab has long been a mecca for freedivers. Freedive training in Dahab is ideal because of the blue hole, a hole in the coral which drops down to 92m just a stones throw from the shore and only 30 minutes from Dahab town. Current is rare, visibility is great, the water temp varies from warm to mild and you will be surrounded by some of the worlds best freedivers.
Recent political troubles has reduced the amount of tourists visiting the Senai region, but the flow of freedivers has never stopped. The freediving community in Dahab is as strong and warm as it has ever been.
I was coached by Harry during two stays in Dahab and booked the third time already. Harry helped me to increase my personal best in depth from 56m to 75m in a very relaxed way, with a strong focus on safety. He re-engineered my monofin technique completely as well as he helped me to improve my mouthfill technique. Thanks to his coaching I could set up new national records (Austria) in free immersion as well as constant weight. Even when you think you cant improve anymore he will identify small gaps, and will provide easily to understand instructions, which if you follow, bring you to new depths.
He coaches his enormous knowledge about diverse freediving topics starting from yoga over increasing endurance, overall fitness, relaxation and stretching in a very kind, funny and patient way. I am already looking forwards to the next relaxing dives in the red sea with observant Harry at my side and maybe celebrate new achievements with a pb cake.
