Welcome to the Lebanon Water Festival 2019 International Free Diving Depth Championship.  For this 8th edition, the following disciplines will be available:

1/ Constant Weight Mono (CWT Mono)

2/ Constant Weight (CWT)

3/ Constant Weight without Fins (CNF)

4/ Free Immersion Apnea (FIM).

  • CWT is a freediving discipline in which the freediver descends and ascends using his fins or monofin and/or with the use of his arms without pulling on the rope or changing his ballast; only a single hold of the rope to stop the descent and start the ascent is allowed. Constant weight is the common sportive depth discipline of freediving, because of the specific fins or monofins used in it. Constant weight is a discipline considered for international competitions.
  • CFN is a freediving discipline in which the freediver descends and ascends by swimming without the use of fins or without pulling on the rope or changing his ballast; only a single hold of the rope to stop the descent and to start the ascent is allowed. Constant weight without fins is the depth discipline of freediving that is most challenging, because of the physical effort needed to swim without assistance.
  • FIM is an AIDA International freediving discipline in which the freediver dives under water without the use of propulsion equipment, but only by pulling on the rope during descent and ascent.
