Diving is attracting young people due to the many benefits and challenges of this underwater sport.
Diving helps people practice skills, improve physical health and sense of protection of the marine environment, because participants are witnessed by the changing underwater environment due to the impact from human being.
This sport has two forms of experience: scuba diving and free diving. These two types require players to have an international certificate.
The most fundamental difference between scuba diving and free diving is breathing. While divers with oxygen tanks never hold their breath when going into the water because of the risk of lung expansion, free divers are doing the opposite: keeping it breathed through the dive. Diving with oxygen tanks is mainly done for the purpose of exploring, studying the ocean and performing underwater tasks.
Freestyle divers is almost not dependent on any diving device other than a pair of swimming goggles and propellers, a true freedom. Thus, they will feel more comfortable and relaxed when contacting the underwater world which is colorful and diverse. In other words, free diving opens more experiences – not only allows divers to approach many marine animals and connect to the ocean but also to improve health, cultivate well swimming and practicing body control.
Although there are differences, scuba diving and free diving still have a lot in common and some skills and techniques that require divers to master when taking the above two forms of diving.
The first and most important thing for diving participants is to be comfortable and confident underwater. The ability to maintain relaxation and calm movement in the water is also important because of the freedom of the diver to extend the time to hold the breath, and the scuba diver will avoid stress. Different respiration techniques in free-diving can be used well for scuba diving because it helps divers reduce the consumption of limited oxygen in the bottle.
