On July 31-Aug 1, FreediveSafe hosted a hugely successful spearfishing safety event for 21 local youth in Kona, Hawai’i. The students assembled from all over the Big Island from Mountain View to Hamakua, and completed the FII Basic Freediving Safety course with FII freediving instructors, Heidi Hoover, Sandra Hammel and Martin Stepanek.

The event was generously supported by local dive shops, Kona Freedivers and Ali’i Adventures and the event was covered by West Hawaii Today.
