Meet the Evolve Swim Instructors

Ashley Chapman

Ashley after breaking U.S. National Records in FIM and CWT to 84 meters

Ashley has made a name for herself as one of the best freedivers in the world with 3 world records and 17 US national records in the sport. She currently holds all the US national records for depth while at the same time mothering an eight year old and a four year old, both of which have lots of hours in the water already.

“I love freediving but my current focus is on my children. Ren and I live on a boat so it is very important to make sure the children can swim.  Much like competitive freediving, the goal has always been to create a sense of water comfort. Teaching our children to swim and in their own turn, freedive, has been even more rewarding than any record I ever set at depth.”

Gabe Louviere

Hello! My name is Gabriel Louviere, I am 19 years old, and I am from Murrieta California. I am currently a second year at UNCW studying Coastal Engineering. Outside of swimming I enjoy surfing, skateboarding, and spending time outside.

I learned all the basics of swimming and developed early stroke technique in a similar program such as Evolve’s Private lessons. It was the small private lessons that taught me how to be comfortable, confident and safe in the water. I began competitive swimming at the young age of 9 and continued my career till the age of 18. I was lucky enough to develop a deep passion for the sport of swimming, and it brings me joy to spread that passion to others.

I began teaching swim lessons in large class settings, and I have slowly moved on to private lessons because I found many people benefit from the private lesson environment. I am so excited to be working with you all, and I can’t wait to see how far we can progress your swimming capabilities!
