She is 15 and freediving has just become one of her favourite sports! Leyla Mumcuoğlu is one the latest young mermaids who joined our family.
We first met Leyla at the beginning of Summer and it was a blast to make her start freediving. She had good breath hold, flexibility and a solid body awareness which helped her so much to master the basic techniques. However at our last day, just at the time we were planning to go deep, she had to go back to her school and our program was incomplete.
Leyla came back few weeks ago to complete her course and we decided to recap all open water skills from scratch. We reminded her the basics and then focused on the equalisation. Slowly she mastered how to handle the pressure and started to get deeper. Needless to say we enjoyed to watch and instruct our little mermaid in all her progress. We are looking forward to dive with you again Leyla, until then dive safe!
