SSI Perfect Buoyancy Specialty course is a specialty that can be fully conducted in a pool. The training aims to optimize the buoyancy control of a diver. You will learn how to breathe, when to kick and when not to kick to reach a trance-like condition underwater. 

With good buoyancy control, you will consume less air, and is less likely to get fatigue underwater. You will also utilize different fin kick methods to make maneuvering underwater easier. In this course, you will learn skills like backward finning (Reverse Frogkick), 360° finning (Helicopter fin kicks) and many more.
