We dare you:  try to hold your breath as long as he does in this video. You’re sitting in a chair at your computer doing nothing and you won’t be able to.  William Trubridge dives 190 feet down, 100 feet thru a tunnel, and then swims 190 back to the surface and still can hold his breath longer than you can sitting in a chair.

freediving the arch

No fins, no wetsuit, no air, no nothing. William essentially does this naked.  The guy if f#$king nuts, no doubt.  If he wasn’t French, people would think he was weird.  Ha, I’m already writing about him in the past tense.  The French are the creme dela creme of all extreme sports and freediving is by far the most dangerous, so of course they’re dominating that, too.

This act of madness was performed at The Arch in Dahab’s Blue Hole in Egypt’s Red Sea in the Sinai.

William is the Unassisted Freediving World Record holder.

    hi!

    this is aimar from Barcelona, but living in Las Lenas now. I’ll be a freediving instructor probably next december, now i did the AIDA and SSI freediving masters in Tailand this last summer. There is something u guys should know, freediving is a really passionate way to know more about your phisiollogy, body and mind and is not a extreme sport at all, i’be seen 60 year old woman doing 6 minutes statics after 2 weeks training only. I have friends doing 70 mts with fins the first 2 months of freediving. This is a sport that is close more to yoga that any other danger, when u study it, you have al the signals and alerts for a better protectios and is almost impossible that something happens if you do thinks well, even in really hi depths and long breath holds. Freeriding is a dangerous sport, but one thing is true…never try to search for the satisfaction of freeriding in any other sport, we have the unique, best, most dangerous, lovely, more nature contact anf feeeling sport in the world..and that is rippin big mountanis!
