Underwave’s biggest purpose is to spread and share the power of breathing and breath holding with as many people as possible. We strongly believe everyone has unlimited physical & mental potential, but it’s something asleep. Our biggest mission is to help people awaken their true potential. Our Vision is to, through a comprehensive, powerful, step by step Training System, unleash the physical and mental potential of all surfers around the globe.
Conscious Breathing & Breath Holding are one of the greatest tools in life to develop self-awareness and self-control, since we start getting deeply in touch with ourselves: our thoughts, our ability to relax and our true physical capacity.
The practice of Conscious breathing and breath holding will allow you to take your physical and mental performance to the next level, and allow you to become a stronger, more resilient version of yourself.
Underwave was created by Freedivers, Surfers & Sport Performance Specialist. Although we are mostly focused on working with Surfer’ demands, we firmly believe anyone can benefit from the art of conscious breathing and all the physiological and mental benefits that come along with this practice.
It does not matter if it is your very first time practicing breath holding, if you have never surfed before or if you are not even interested in diving deep or taking this knowledge to the water, Breath training is the ultimate training to enhance life quality and human potential.
So in the end, Breath Holding is not about diving as long as possible or holding your breath for a certain amount of time, but rather about connecting and discovering your own path to a better life quality
through a deeper connection with yourself.
Underwave was founded by Augusto Carrara, who was constantly seeking and exploring new ways to connect his biggest passions: the ocean and sports.
As a Physical Education Teacher, an Apnea Total Molchanovs Instructor and Survival Apnea Coach,
Augusto founded Underwave in Santa Teresa in 2019, a place where he could finally mix all of his passions together.
One year later, in 2020 Underwave´s Surf Club was born, a Surf Performance Training Center founded by
Augusto Carrara, where he shares his lifetime experience in the ocean and with sports to anyone seeking to enhance their Surfing and Ocean confidence through the practice and coaching of several different disciplines.
