WELCOME TO GO NATIVE FREEDIVING

.....Freedive Instructor / Competitive American Freediver / Freedive Advocate..... 

Forrest Simon has combined decades of ocean experiences, multiple Freedive certifications, competitive freedive training / experiences, innovation and his professional skills in curriculum developement to bring the Freedive Community a "One of a Kind" approach to Freedive Instruction.

Freediving is more then just swimming up and down a line while holding your breath.  It's more then the meters in depth nor the seconds in apnea.   It's about the experience.... the underwater journey we embark on when we explore, spearfish, pratice uw photography, or simply just the joy of being underwater, breathless, disconnected from the air filled world above. 

Through the use of Go Native's Freediving's unique Courses, Forrest combines his mindfull underwater passion, with top notch freedive safety / rescue / and performance techniques to leave each student with a positive and confident experience confident to grow as freeivers..... And as a 250+ ft freediver and 7:30+ min breath holder, Forrest brings abilities and experience to teach the Skills / Techniques that will ensure you take your Recreational
 Freediving to the next level!  

  



I had the opportunity to train with Forrest while visiting down in Florida and I must say it was truly game changing. I have been freediving and Spearfishing for around ten years now but have never focused on only freediving. I have always dove with talented freedive spearos and hunted up to 100ft, but have never in my life seen someone freedive as good as Forrest. He personally spotted 4 of us diving 100-140ft and was with us every step of the way, providing excellent feedback and encouragement. He is so comfortable in the water and is such a great instructor I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to freedive or even to sharpen your skills if you are already a great freediver. I set two personal records in a short time diving with ease after listening to Forrest. Hands down one of the nicest and down to earth guys you will meet. Sign up with Go Native Freediving if you want the best instruction anyone can give."

" We signed up, pre hurricane Michael, for a @go_native_freediving certification. Then our plans changed so we couldn't attend the course. The owner Forrest actually set up an amazing private certification so we could get our freediving certification! After the first day of amazing instruction and a new breath hold record for me, I woke up day two with congestion. We still went through day two of instruction without pushing my inability to equalize. Little did we know my problem equalizing was due to an ear infection that would continue for days after the certification. Everyone was completely understanding of the randomness of my ear infection and offered to retest my dives after it went away. Go Native's services are above par! Their pricing is amazing! But the people... Are what makes this company truly special. "
