During my freedive training between christmas and new years eve 2010 I decided to see how long I could stay under water during one hour. This non-official discipline is called successive apnea and records have been set of around 59:30 and even 59:45.
This movie is speed up 8 times during the breathhold to make it easier to digest. :-)
The rules are: two timekeepers (average time counts). Stopwatch starts with lifting my airways above the surface and stops with me submerging again.
I managed 59:09 (only ;-) ) even thought I did longer breathholds (therefor less times breathing) than the earlier fools. Next time I will need to work on surfacing and inhaling quicker.
Happy new year!
