BESTDIVE Present at the Depth World Championship

BESTDIVE, a diving wetsuit manufacturing company based in China, joins the AIDA Depth World Championship Limassol 2021 as a sponsor.

DIVE CONDITIONS

Water temperature is expected to be between 25°C and 28°C with thermocline below 20m and visibility around 30m-35m, thanks to the absence of plankton. The air temperature in Cyprus at the end of September is usually between 28°C-32°C.


The competition site is located one mile from the beach, opposite the venue hotel and with 150m of depth. There will be two competition lines with counter ballast systems able to lift a freediver at a speed of 1.5m/sec. High-resolution sonar and a connected video camera will be providing real-time information on the freediver’s progress.


Each competition line will be covered with four safety freedivers selected and trained to the highest standard. Six warm-up lines will be set to 30m. Dry warm-up will be possible on the vessel and on a smaller platform near the performance zone. A decompression station whit O2 will be available on the dive location.


AIDA Medical Committee members and emergency medical personnel selected by the committee will be oresent at the competition zone to handle potencial accidents.

In case of emergency, the evacuation boat can transfer freedivers to the beach in 7 min. An ambulance will be on standby at the beach and can transfer freedivers to the Limassol General Hospital in 10 min. Three taxi boats will be available to carry athletes, judges, and crew from the beach to the competition zone.

    Travel to Cyprus

    Cyprus’ main airport is Larnaca International Airport (LCA) and is on the outskirts of Larnaca, approximately 77km from Limassol.


    Paphos International Airport (PFO) is located approximately 67km from Limassol.


    Both airports are connected to Limassol by a 45 minute drive on a modern highway. The Limassol Urban Buse Company has a daily roundtrip schedule from Larnaca or Paphos Airport to Limassol, including weekends and public holidays to provide transportation needs for all athletes at a cost of € 9 per person including VAT and luggage.

    Cyprus has the euro (€) as its sole currency. Cyprus is a member of the Schengen Agreement, but has not yet fully implemented it. For EU and EFTA (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway) citizens, together with those of Switzerland, an officially approved ID card (or a passport) is sufficient for entry. In no case will they need a visa for a stay of any length. Other international will need a passport for entry.

    Travel to/from any other country (Schengen or not) from/to Cyprus will (as of now) result in the normal immigration passport control, but if travelling to/from another EU country you will not have to pass customs. However, if Cyprus requires a visa for your nationality, this may be waived if you already have a valid Schengen visa.
