Interview with Adam Freediver Stern

Adam Freediver Stern is the Steve Irwin of freediving. His contagious enthusiasm has inspired thousands of people to discover the joy of freediving and freedive spearfishing. It was with much excitement that I got on this call with Adam and we had a great time exploring his freediving journey including his struggles overcoming the ‘hard charger’ mindset and dealing with the resulting issues. We also get into a heap of questions from the Noob Spearo Community and really get into equalizing issues. There is a tonne of info in the interview that smashed some of my ideas and I found this conversation sensational. Love to hear what you think about it in the comments!

Adam Stern lives on the Central Coast, NSW and is an Australian 8 x Australian freediving record holder.

We all started out watching his YouTube videos and that’s how I learned to Frenzle. Some of us are part of his Patreon. Please thank him on our behalf of us. The dive group was talking about breathe ups we learned while getting certified. We all had a slightly different breathe up. I started with a 4/1/8/1 but went to a 3/1/10/1 after my course. What breathe up does he personally think works best? We are spearing if that changes it.”

NSP:111 I DIVE ALONE

NSP:111 I DIVE ALONE

I Dive Alone | The Spearfishing Dilemma

A dilemma is when the two choices in front of you are difficult. If you want to go spearfishing but you don’t have a dive buddy then your choices are; to dive alone or stay home.

One choice involves a higher level of risk but also the possibility of fun, solitude and all the other wonders we experience when spearfishing.

The other; less risk but a missed opportunity to spend the day out in the water.

“Your spearfishing buddy is your only true piece of safety equipment when diving”. This is as close to Gospel truth in spearfishing as it gets, so why dive alone?

This episode is a frank chat about diving alone. Pro’s, Con’s, everything.

MORE on the Spearfishing Dilemma

A dilemma is sometimes described as being stuck between a rock and a hard place. In spearfishing this isn’t just a figurative illustration though, it’s a reality. Especially when chasing crayfish (lobster) or another hole dwelling tasty creature. And caves aren’t the only risk, not by a long shot. Let’s add shallow water blackout, boat/jetski traffic, cramp, current, sharks and all of the other less likely risks to the list. The fact is that having a buddy drastically reduces/mitigates every single one of these risks…

BUT….

Let’s be honest.

Some spearfishing buddies are so shit you might as well be diving by yourself anyway.

AND…

There are other appeals to diving alone despite the greatly increased risk of doing so.

This conversation with experienced spearfisherman Pat Swanson is an open and candid chat about the reality of diving alone.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about it in our spearfishing community on Facebook here.

The road to 40 meters

The road to 40 meters

The road to 40 meters 

By Sven Franklin

Since I started freediving and spearfishing I have always watched the videos of people diving deep in awe. Like a form of hypnotism, there was something about it that really drew me in.

At the time of writing this article I have been diving for exactly 2.5 years. When I started I hit the ground running and had lots of passion and enthusiasm, matched with very little skill and know how. If you were to ask the guys at Club Spearfish about me when I first started, they wouldn’t hesitate to tell you that I struggled to dive to 3 meters, and hold my breath for longer than 15 seconds. At the time I would leave comments on youtube videos and pm peoples instagrams, just to ask them how they learnt to dive so deep, and how long it took them to get there.

Like most of the newer generation I wanted all these skills yesterday and unfortunately I didn’t get any proper responses or knowledge passed down. So I felt it was only right to help and tell my story, for those who wish to learn to dive deeper.

This is how in the span of one year I went from being a 10 meter diver, to being able to effortlessly dive to 38 meters.

Before I continue, I highly urge people to do a freediving course. To help learn proper basic techniques such as the correct way to prepare for a dive, finning, equalisation, as well as what hyperventilation really is, and the science and reasons behind why people suffer from shallow water black outs and LMC’s.

I went to school

The real start to diving deeper than 10 meters (33 feet) was to go and learn from one of the best in the industry, Lucas Handley who owns and runs The Underwater Academy. Not only is Lucas a really approachable teacher, he’s also extremely knowledgeable in everything freediving and spearfishing and lets his skills do the talking.

After doing my Aida level 2 course and getting to 20 meters (66 feet), I then took my new found knowledge and skills and applied them to train for two different trips to the remote Komodo Islands of Indonesia.

The first trip was for my Aida 3 and to learn to dive to 30 meters (98 feet), and then the second was to do my Aida 4 to hit 38 meters (124 feet).

The thing I found myself geeking out on the most, was the science behind everything. What triggers your Mammalian dive reflex/response, What is happening to your body as you start to dive deeper, and what risks you encounter such as Dalton’s law when surfacing.

Having all this knowledge helped set aside any fears or doubts that I had, as it turned things like the “magical reflex humans have” into a more detailed and defined reason.

Training for depth 

Unfortunately training for depth in Victoria isn’t easy. A mixture of cold waters (reaching as low as 9 degrees in winter) meaning you are sometimes diving in a 7mm suit, having really bad vis, or just needing a boat to get out to the places that have depth (which also hold a lot of current too).

Although it doesn’t completely replicate what your body goes through at depth, I find pool training is the next best thing. I would organise regular pool seasons with my mates, with about 2 a week.

Lots of different exercises to keep things interesting, from co2 tables, games of cat and mouse, or even swimming 25 meters and doing hangs at the other end.

This saw a huge improvement in all of us training and before you knew it I could do 100m dynamics effortlessly.

(Everyone who was doing the pool training had done a freediving course prior, and knew proper pre dive techniques, recovery breathing, and buddy rescuing and protocol).

If you don’t have access to a pool in your area, or are limited to dive buddies, you can also do dry training such as apnea walks, or dry static tables).

Outside of the pool I would set aside 15-20 minutes every other day to stretch out my body from head to toe, as well as in the lead up to diving past 30 meters doing some advanced diaphragm and lung stretches. (These advanced stretches should be shown to you by an instructor as even on dry land you can do serious damage to your lungs).

 

Listen to your body and don’t push it

Free diving is about self awareness and never about the numbers. When diving deep there are many serious risks involved, like sinus squeeze, perforated ear drums, or even lung barotrauma. All of this can be avoided by listening to your body, and not rushing to get the numbers.

The pressures and changes your body is experiencing at depth is very taxing and at the start will often leave you both mentally and physically exhausted after just a few deep dives.

When I first dove to 30 meters I eagerly thought to myself I could easily go deeper. Fast forward a few months with more advanced training, and after I dove to 38 meters I was wrecked. The atmospheric pressure on my body from diving 8 meters deeper was something I wouldn’t have thought of, and my body needed time to adjust. Safe to say if a few months prior I had eagerly gone deeper as part of me wanted to, I could have potentially done some damage.

You have to allow your body time to adjust to the depth, as well as improving new skills such as a new way to equalise past 30 meters. This doesn’t mean weeks and days, but months and sometimes years. Remember the depths of the ocean will always be there, so best to explore them when your body is ready for it.

The big secret to diving deeper and a longer breath hold

I remember always wondering what the big secret was to diving deep and a longer breath hold. And while some things play their part like proper technique, the big secret is simply relaxation.

Despite being taught this in my Aida 2, it really took a while before it sunk in and I understood it. Relaxation is many things, from relaxing your muscles from head to toe and making sure no muscle is using up energy when its not needed (the neck and back in particular). The other is relaxation of the mind and being able to control your thoughts, like giving your mind certain tasks to help keep it from wondering and thinking negative thoughts. The more you dive and train, the more you will find yourself (in a safe manner of course) becoming more comfortable with the symptoms of co2, which in turn will help you relax more as you have a deeper understanding that what you are feeling is normal and natural.

The biggest way I find myself to be more relaxed while out spearfishing, especially at depth is to have a dive buddy who not only do I communicate with clearly by letting him know what my plan is on my dive, how deep and how long I think I am going down for, But also someone who has put my safety first by doing a freediving course themselves. Knowing your buddy can spot the first signs anything goes wrong, and (touch wood I hope it never happens) rescue me if I were to have a shallow water black out when coming to the surface, or even an LMC whilst on the surface.

 

My final take on learning to dive deeper

The road to 40 meters is a lot of fun and I have made some great friends along the way. If I could go back and tell myself anything at all about diving deep, it would be that I would get there eventually, and the path I took was the right one for myself.

I’ve always thought that if I could freedive to “x” depth, then I could comfortably spear 10m shallower and I personally find this to be spot on, as I am now extremely comfortable being able to hunt at 30m.

My next trip to do some depth is coming up in November, and at the start of the year I was planning on reaching 50 meters, but after everything I have learned, especially from my last trip. I know I will be happy even if I only add on an extra 2 meters depth, as I know my body will need time to adapt, plus the depths of the ocean will always be there.

If I have missed over anything you would like to know about, feel free to contact me on my social media @svenjamin_franklin on instagram and I will be more than happy to answer any of your questions the best that I can.

47:00 Veterans Vault | How Spearfishing Can Help You Overcome Anxiety


Spearfishing can be a huge trigger for fear and anxiety.

However, Tim believes that the situations he has encountered while spearfishing have been the key to learning and understanding anxiety triggers and then developing and employing strategies and techniques to overcome it. His idea is not to avoid discomfort but to embrace it and try to use the situations as opportunities to heal, grow and overcome anxiety. Here are a few of the key ideas and points;

GET COMFORTABLE WITH THE UNCOMFORTABLE

  • Accept anxiety, learn from it and if needed get help to take its power away
  • Don’t fight it, sit with it and learn to move forward anyway
  • Learn breathing techniques to relax on the surface and reduce fear and anxiety
  • Being in stressful situations can help you overcome long standing beliefs
  • Relaxing in situations that most people (even those who don’t have anxiety) would panic in
  • Turn fear into curiosity – sharks/current/rough seas. Ground yourself in the moment by paying attention to the details.
  • Fight or flight – there is no flight out at sea.
  • Prepare to not be prepared
  • Relax and enjoy – surface intervals-  find what works for you.
  • Speak up about that things that deeply affect you – but it falls on you to make change
  • Get help when you need it from a professional

Studies show that Turmeric or Curcumin has an antidepressant like effect and can improve mental health.

If it helps control depression and anxiety even a small amount, it’s worth sharing! This article has information about research on the relationship between Turmeric and Depression.

70:50 Dive Watch Conversation

74:25 Spearo Q&A

Could you describe what the spearfishing experience means to you in one sentence?

  • It has given me deep confidence within myself and shown me what I am truly capable of mentally and physically.

What is the single best piece of advice you have ever been given for spearfishing?

  • Slow down and take your time, dive within your limits

Who has been the most influential person or people in your spearfishing?

  • My friends, these are guys who’ve been diving a very long time, and took the time to share their passion with me.

If you could go back in time to when you were just starting spearfishing and give yourself some advice, what would you say?

  • Stop overthinking it  – stop trying to control everything and every situation, roll with it.

During your 1 years spearfishing what is the biggest lesson you’ve learned?

  • To be comfortable in situations that are well outside my comfort zone

What current challenges do you face in your spearfishing and how are you approaching them?

  • The biggest one is still the anxious tendancy to overthink, overplan, get panicked. Rather than let it take hold of the day I now learned tools to deal with it.
    – Breathing techniques
  • Mindfulness
  • Take a break and reset
  • Move spots
  • Meds for seasickness
  • Don’t spend a week planning
  • SLOW DOWN

Who is the best person to go spearfishing with and why?

  • My good mates! I feel calmer with them, I know they have my back, the take the time to teach me new things, then know the good places to get in the water 😉 most of all we all share the same passion and a common goal – could possible touch here on the business we are setting up.

What would be your fish of a lifetime?

6 monts ago I jsut wanted a huge snapper of kingi, I had set my comfort zone at what I was doing here in NZ – After cuvier and being in the big open sea in a more exposed environtment I really want to go further a field – ultimate fish for me would be a big doggy, they just look like they would put up one hell of a fight (i say this now but in the moment I would be peaking out!) haha id also really like a mahi mahi I think they look awesome and I ate one in raro once, it was amazing.

What is the spearfishing destination that you would most like to go to?

Next I would like to go to Raro I think this would be a good step into some difference species and diving. Id also really like to go to Bali to do the deep week free diving course. Id also like to go to the Three Kings.
