"Back in the old days" most scuba divers had a fairly good background in freediving.
A person started off at an early age with mask, snorkel, & flippers in gradeschool & saved up their pennies to get their tank & reg.
Having the basic water skills needed to freedive effectively is a major asset in how a person scuba dives.
Freediver scuba divers are often easy to spot by the way they like to minimalize bulky gear configurations, and also by the way they sorta effortlessly slip through the water instead of trudging through it.
