Interview with Adam Sellars
Today’s interview is with Adam Sellars from The Pressure Project! Freediving instructor, spearo and all round legend Adam Sellars joins us to chat about the instructor side of freediving courses and how he teaches and trains new and already experienced divers to be safer and more effective. He had a natural talent and excelled at freediving deep, far deeper and earlier than he should have! These ‘mistakes’ taught him valuable lessons that he can now share and teach to his students. Hear about freediving in the Kilsby Sinkhole, how to convince your friends or partner to go spearfishing with you and some banter from the 2 legends, Shrek and Adam!
