Uk Freediving courses

Hello, I'm Matt, i established Spearfishing and Freediving Southwest in 2021. I grew up in Torquay Devon and spent my youth spearfishing and foraging around the Devon coastline. I have over 17 years of experience in Devon and Cornwall and love passing on the skills i have learnt over these years. I have strong emphasis that spearfishing should only be practiced to have the ability to catch your own food and to connect to the oceans that we are so lucky to be surrounded here in the UK


 I currently spend my time teaching spearfishing and freediving around the world. I am currently in Bali but return to the UK in the summers to teach. I'm a competitive freediver and hold the UK National record in Free immersion at 104 Meters deep.

My focus is on delivering the highest quality sustainable spearfishing and freediving courses available with me and my team.

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned diver, my goal is to assist you in reaching your aspirations and unlocking your potential. With personalized training programs and exceptional inshore freediving facilities, I'm dedicated to offering the highest quality training to all my students.
