I thought that big fin was going to get stuck in the cockpit doorway!
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
Excellent video, very well put together.
Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
I think William Trubridge diving the Blue Hole is properly freediving. Nowt but a pair of budgie smugglers.
I'm married to a freediver / spearo - he has lungs like suitcases and stays down for minutes at a time - all relaxed and fully trained up. I can duck dive - that makes me a snorkeler. At a guess, I'd say freedivers are competition standard and snorkelers are folk pootling round with a snorkel and duckdiving for less than a minute? Who knows?
We can all big ourselves up with fancy titles!
After watching that, I'm just a snorkler :-)
I'd say to be honest both are the same thing in many respects, but a Freediver is trained to a higher level in safety and has been taught to overcome the initial urges to breathe and continue on down / across. Snorkelling is more of a splash and a dash and much about the enjoyment from the surface with the occasional shallow dive
Having said that, there are some exceptional snorkellers out there who to be honest could call themselves freedivers through self education.
i thought also)))
I don't want to get technical or anything, but alcohol IS a solution
If I'm not mistaken, scuba diving and freediving are slightly different. Their very process of implementation consists of different things. During freediving, a person dives under the water in one breath. But in any case, I like ordinary diving better. At least once a month with friends we try to get out into the sea or ocean. This is a great pleasure. We have been looking for someone who can help us with this for a very long time. On one of the forums, we were prompted to turn to https://www.sirolodive.com/service/fun-dive/ and this turned out to be a very correct choice. These guys provide very cool services, they can also teach you everything related to the sea, swimming and diving.

Correct me if I'm wrong but freediving is when a diver performs a dive with one breath without surfacing rather than snorkeling.
