Hi, I'm Alexander Nilsson

I am a Swedish record holder freediver and instructor.

I started freediving in January 2016, and I was instantly hooked. I was particularly drawn to the freedom, silence and weightlessness one experiences underwater.

I yearned to prolong the incredible sensations! Determined to dive deeper, I have been consistently competing since 2017.

My desire to pass on my knowledge and passion for freediving led me to become a PADI and Molchanovs Freediving Instructor.

Most of the knowledge I'm passing on to my students is from my own experiences, which I get from figuring out the best and most efficient way to train myself. This helps me in coaching students to overcome their barriers and see them reach new depths!

If you have any questions or are curious to try out or improve your freediving, please do not hesitate to contact me!
