Kirk took my camera out on one of our training days and got some nice shots of our training dives.
Ashley Futral is training in all the disciplines and reaching some serious depths in all of them. She has a great spirit and always has a smile for us.

Ben Weiss is also training in all the disciplines. He's been making impressive depths with style!

Performance Freediving employee Erin Magee is training to beat the national record in Constant Weight with Fins.
Erin's CWT technique is amazing! She makes it look easy, and graceful.

Erin's boyfriend and fellow PFI employee Ted Harty is working on improving his depths in all three disciplines and making some very impressive progress. He and Erin are quite the team!

I'm also working on all the disciplines, making progress in my Constant Weight depths while also enjoying the opportunity to rack up some points in No Fins and Free Immersion.

Joe Sheridan is a super nice and friendly guy who's here to have a good time and experience his first competition. He's working on all the disciplines.

My roommate Junko Kitahama is from Japan, she's working on beating not only the women's, but also the men's record in Constant No Fins! This girl has some serious talent.

My friend Greg Fee from Vancouver is here to improve his depth and pool skills, and to teach the rest of us how to juggle!

A relative newcomer to freediving, Rosibel Molina is blowing everyone away with her amazing progress, hitting some serious depths and showing us how it's done in the pool.

I first met Hawkeye Parker while freediving with dolphins near Kona, Hawai'i last winter. His positive attitude helps all of us have great dives.

Of course we couldn't do any of this without our fantastic support team of safety divers!
