Our Story

Deep Sensations Freediving, founded by Curtis Tredway, offers premier freediving education and experiences in New South Wales, encompassing Cronulla, Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Sydney and Central Coast. At Deep Sensations, we specialise in providing comprehensive training in both SSI and Molchanovs freediving courses.

Curtis Tredway, the founder, is not just an instructor but a passionate ocean enthusiast who has delved deep into the world of freediving. His journey began with Adam Stern, a prominent figure in the freediving community. Curtis has further honed his skills through multiple Masters programs and coaching stints with esteemed personalities such as Apnea Bali's Julia Mouce, a national record holder, and Ocean Prana's, Yoram Zekri, a former second in the world.

Curtis's commitment to excellence led him to pursue his SSI Freediving Instructor certification under the tutelage of Dan Parsons, one of Australia's most experienced Freediving Instructor Trainers at Freediving Central. He then expanded his expertise by completing the Molchanovs Freediving Instructor course with the esteemed Apnea Bali, where he was guided by Valentina, Eli, and Julia, highly respected Freediving Coaches amongst Competitive and Professional Freedivers.

Having graduated from The University of Wollongong and initially worked as a Divemaster in Indonesia, Curtis recognized his true calling lay in the depths of the ocean. Rediscovering his childhood passion for freediving, he embarked on a mission to turn his passion into a profession, thus giving rise to Deep Sensations Freediving.

Curtis's connection to the ocean runs deep, as he has worked for surf schools like Australian Surf Tours and Happy Days, providing surf lessons and surf safety education for kids under Surf Education Australia. As a true waterman at heart, Curtis finds joy in various ocean activities, including surfing, underwater photography, freediving, spearfishing, and body surfing. Though he may have been a late bloomer in his family of ocean lovers, Curtis's journey into the depths of the sea has only deepened his appreciation for its wonders.

Join the Deep Sensations community today and embark on a transformative journey into the captivating realm of freediving.
