The exclusive '145' Club




Exclusive 145 freediving club



The method of getting into the club is simple.



  • Three disciplines, three performances of sufficient standard (see below).
  • All dives must be wet (not dry statics or apnea walks)
  • All dives must be 'clean' so clear of samba / BO and without injury
  • All dives must be witnessed by a fellow club member (or trusted Freediver) or entered into the AIDA rankings page
  • If depth has been done abroad only it will be listed as Hot Water




The idea of the club is a motivational, achievable and aspirational level of quality to achieve in a safe manner, so big jumps of more than 5% at a time will not be accepted for dynamic and static, and no more than 1 metre increment increases in depth past 30 metres deep.




The requirements are:



Rebecca Coales DNF swim Dymanic with or without fins. 100 metres distance.



Constant weight with or without fins, 40 metres depth freediving scuba club lecture


static dive Static breathold, 5'00 minutes hold


Hence 1 (00) 4 (0) 5 ('00) club

Freediving, when practised properly, is a very safe sport. However there are risks so always dive with the supervision of a QUALIFIED and competent buddy. Never hold your breath alone, even in water as shallow as your bath. Someone needs to be there who knows exactly what they are looking for and what to do in case of a blackout. A casual observer or even a lifeguard who hasn't been specifically trained in apnea would not be suitable.
