Free diving and my 15+1 rules...
Free diving is great and once I combine it with underwater photography, it's a double pleasure for me. But there are some security rules and everyone has to set their own rules.
I prefer to dive alone so that my day is not destroyed.
Let's get it from the beginning. Diving with another person (couple) is definitely the safest method for you or the other person (who is with you) to not happen anything.
But personally i don't like to destroy my own dives, because that's why I'm going to the sea. And not to sit on the surface to see the other person, nor do I have to follow him wherever he goes.
I want to be free to dive when I want and not to expect him/her to come up, but to go where i like and i want. Whether it's open to the sea or on rocks.
It may sound arrogant, selfish, and other things, but diving a couple with another person the only thing you can do is to destroy your own dives or even your own day.
