Underwater, you will have only seconds to react, readjust, and regain your composure before the extreme risks of freediving compound around you. A diver’s ability to descend and ascend without problems is the most important part of freediving and spearfishing.
How do you counteract your body’s mass underwater without compromising your safety? A diving belt weighted for your needs, body, and gear will be necessary. Purchasing a belt isn’t enough to erase underwater dangers. Too little or too much weight on your belt can compromise your safety, but the belt itself must be strong enough to hold your weights in place without slipping, shifting, or falling off your body.
