He is really seriouse about and passionate about his work, something that everything about Freediving Panglao reflects. We both were able to go to both 20 and 18meters, and added about a good minute to... More

Stefan was a very motivating, knowledgable and patient mentor. He was able to explain in any level of detail all things freediving. He quietly helped me to achieve... More

Not only a rockstar on youtube, Stefan is also by far the most chilled Freediving instructor around! The water was the clearest we've seen in the Philippines, and there was plenty of fish swimming around us while diving off the main beach. Plus, Panglao/Bohol is really a must see, lush tropical island, just a couple of hours away from Cebu...... More

Why do you want to learn free diving? - at the very beginning of the class, Stefan asked me with that question. I told him I saw a video featuring some guys free diving in Dahab, which makes me think this is the most most beautiful movements that human can do in the world. But the funny part is……at that...

In fact it was a movie featuring Stefan and some other divers diving a giant rock in Dahab that made me want to learn freediving in the first place (watch the movie here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nojwX5ZL0qE ). When i heard that Stefan Randig opened a freediving school in Alona Beach i was very exited to test it out and finally meet him... More
