It’s not about how deep you can dive, it’s about how you feel when you dive deep!


I’m a freediver living in Sweden. My passion for freediving has changed me in many ways over the past few years and I hope I can inspire others to make the same journey as I did.

My dedication to freediving has become more of a lifestyle and I’m always looking forward to the next dive session. Most of my training is done in the pool and on dry land but I take every opportunity I can for a deep dive in the ocean.

I am fortunate to be a part of Active Divers, a local freediving club in Sweden with great spirit and with many training buddies always ready to challenge them self and others to break new grounds and progress as a freediver. We have a great time diving together and I recommend everybody to stop by and say hello if you are in the southern part of Sweden.

Happy freediving and remember, always dive with a trained buddy.

Nemo 33, here we come!

The wait is over and we finally reached our destination, Nemo 33. We are 12 freedivers from Active Divers that can’t wait to get wet and jump into the 33 degree cozy warm water and dive down the 33 meter deep hole.   Unfortunately I was too busy diving so I didn't...
