On December 4, 2017, I learned about freediving. I thought it was a mistake! How can someone descend to 20 meters on a single breath of air, when I still haven’t gone that deep with a full set of scuba gear?
But, I did some research and I asked some questions, and it’s apparently true. Level 3 freediving descends to 40 meters on a single breath of air, and I find that remarkable.
And the world records? I heard one personal story and I’ve watched a few YouTube videos. It is absolutely amazing what freedivers can do.
So, I started taking some online classes and I’ve started doing breath holding exercises. I can currently hold my breath past 90 seconds if I sit absolutely motionless. I think that’s probably a good start, but I still have a long way to go.
I am definitely adding freediving to my bucket list!
