26 year old Brazilian Ricardo de Bahia set the new world record of 20 minutes 21 second after taking pure oxygen for 20 minutes.
What can we do in 20 minutes? If you have some time to waste, check out this video below.
Please do not try this at home.
I recommend this MP3 player for all the freedivers practicing in a pool. It really helps me to zone out.
I wish that the design is little better than this. Finis, Please get yourself a better designer.
As some of you know, I love spending time in the ocean. If I can, I would spend all day playing with a little goby. Today, my new monofin arrived from Water Way Company. I bought my first monofin after watching a film by Luc Besson “Le Grand Blue” in 1988. Although, I did not know (still don’t) anything about Freediving, there was something poetic and sublime about holding breath and diving down over 400 feet. 20 years later, I just got another urge to freedive. So, I contacted Performance Freediving for some help. If you are interested in freediving/spearfishing, I highly recommend these guys. Just check out some of their new school freediving videos.
Erin MaGee helped me select my fin. How often do we get to correspond with the national record holder for an advise in anything? Very cool.
Another video with Erin. The other diver is Kirk Krack who was one of the freediver for OSCAR winning documentary film “The COVE“. Very Cool again.
