Happy Sunday and welcome back!  

This week I want to highlight one of the coolest activities I've been fortunate enough to practice. Freediving.

So, without further delay, please enjoy this week's curation.


📝Article to Read

The Secrets of the World's Greatest Freediver

by GQ Magazine

A deeper (pub intended) perspective of the multifaceted world of competitive freediving, where the goal is to dive as deep as possible on a single breath-hold. GQ previews the life of the world's best, both in and out of the water.

The Secrets of The World’s Greatest Freediver
With only a single breath, Alexey Molchanov, history’s most daring freediver, is reaching improbable depths—and discovering a new kind of enlightenment as he conquers one of the world’s wildest sports.


📺 Videos to Watch

One Breath Around the World

Freediver Guillaume Néry takes you on an underwater journey that will take your breath away. One of the most remarkable short films I've ever witnessed.

World Record Freedive (130+ meters on one breath)

Truly amazing.


💭 Final Thought

Before I took my first freediving class, I was terrified of the ocean - specifically the unknowns in the depths. Freediving gave me a new appreciation through the perspective of how beautiful those unknowns can be.

I only dove to around 66 feet - but  I cannot wait to dive deeper.
