[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Apnea instructor and diver Ricardo Taveira, from Hawaii Eco Divers, trained apnea with two of the best Brazilian surfers in the world circuit: Filipe Toledo and Adriano de Souza.

The training was done separately with the two athletes during the first week of December. Toledo’s family also participated. Most of the training was theoretical information about the physiology of apnea and breathing exercises to help with the mental control during the practice of the techniques. In addition to the exercises to expand and strengthen the respiratory muscles, they also trained static and dynamic apnea and apnea in stress, raising the level of anxiety of athletes through simulations of wipe outs.

Both athletes showed total focus during the training and are fully prepared mentally and physically for the Pipe Master Finalie, which is happening right now at Pipeline, on the North Shore of Oahu. We truly hope one of them wins!

Check out the video of their training:[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”3670,3669,3668,3667,3666,3672″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self”][vc_single_image image=”” border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_single_image image=”” border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
