    But how is there a diver with scuba equipment at 100+ meters below surface? It would take him hours to come up with decompression stops, no?

    Forgive my ignorance, but how did he ascend so fast without getting the bends? I assume it's because he was holding his breath the entire time instead of breathing?

    I thought he would swim down there and then go back up, just as many female divers...🤔🤦‍♂️

    Is it really a free dive if he didn't swim down himself...
    Still a very impressive feat, but I wouldn't call it a free dive, he was assisted by machines, = not free.

    Now, it would be interesting to have such a competition... in reverse !
    Internal pressure wanting to work its way OUT and egalize with ...vacuum.
    With space tourism on the verge of booming, why not initiate "free EVA (extra-vehicular activity") WITHOUT space suit !
    I've heard that a human body can withstand a few seconds in total vacuum before irremediable damage.
    There is this scene at the end of "2001, a Space Odyssee" (Stanley Kubrick), when Dave, denied re-entrance to the ship by the mad computer HAL, tries his luck and bolts back into the airlock chamber of the ship, without a suit...

    I was stationed in the Philippines during Vietnam and our base was half way between Manilla and the fishing grounds further south. We showed outdoor movies, and these fishermen (Murami's) would visit us occasionally. These were EXTREMELY rough and often violent people. The stars on the boats were the deep divers whose job it was to keep the nets off the bottom. They were unique and had the biggest chests I'd ever seen due to increased lung capacity. They would go overboard with a large rock and surface several minutes later. I spoke with a pair of them in the local tavern during one of their visits. They told us they "often" went below 200 meters, so I'm a little suspect of who's keeping the records here. These fellows were daredevils of the first order, which is why they were paid so much more than the rest of the crews. Interesting, eh?

    I don't know if it's different if youre not using an air tank, but as a scuba diver, we have to ascend really slowly and do safety stops before surfacing to avoid getting bends or severely damaging our bodies. how is this avoided?
