New Yorker and Real Estate Finance professional Bobby Kim discovered freediving in 2010 and took to it so much that he went on to get his instructor certification. He now lives in Costa Rica where he teaches freediving fulltime. In fact, freediving kept Bobby busy enough that he traded in a successful expert level amateur motorcycle racing career for his new passion.
This spring he plans to spend more time in Costa Rica teaching freediving, enhancing his surfing skills and pursuing business interests related to his background in commercial real estate finance and asset management.
Though he travels to many exotic places, his favorite dive site is in the US: “I enjoy teaching in the cold and dark waters of the northeast, but my favorite site is Honaunau Bay in Kona, Hawaii. Diving on a line surrounded by spinner dolphins while hearing the sounds of whales singing in the distance is what keeps me going back whenever my schedule allows.”
