...haha, pun.

It looks scary at first, but now I wish I could hold my breath that long to achieve what he did.

Don't really know how to make this into a specific topic driven thread, but I did not know where else to put this.

Topic idea:

IF YOU COULD HOLD YOUR BREATH UNDERWATER FOR A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF TIME, WHAT CRAZY/FUN/COOL THINGS WOULD YOU DO?

(LIKE DIVE INTO A GIANT UNDERWATER HOLE AND PRETEND TO CLIMB BACK OUT)

Wow, that is scary, the only way it could get scarier is if there was Chuck Norris at the bottom.
Gear:
American Strat (Modded with Kinman Pickups and more )
PRS Paul Allender (Don't like Cradle of Filth though )
Line 6 Spider Valve 212 (Broken )
Blackstar HT-5 Combo Amp

That is a terrifying depth. It's incredible he could hold his breath that long.

That's amazing, the video wouldn't load for me so I assume you're watching this one?

Fcuking amazing... I could never hope to get anywhere close to even attempting such a thing.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

That is amazing. But how the hell do you avoid nitrogen narcosis/ the bends? It's not like SCUBA where you have stopping points before surfacing to allow nitrogen to return back to a gas state and get rid of it.

If you go on youtube it tells you they did it in separate takes, but still, amazing.

I was wondering the same thing. But is it different if you are holding your breath? I think it is, because if you have ever seen a diving competition, they dive down really far and really fast and then race back to the top to get air. I think the bends only occurs while using an air tank.

I think, but don't quote me on this, that their not diving far enough for nitrogen buildup to take place.

And also he releases all the air in his lungs before he breaks the surface.

I think thats why

Yes, as you have guessed, unless it was related to bacon, the above post was probably foolish and immature. I'm sorry.

Oh boy I feel dumb, you're absolutely correct. There are different air mixes for SCUBA tanks that help reduce bends but it's usually for technical dives. Free divers gotta race back and don't have to worry about it much at all. I'd imagine blood pooling is more of a concern than anything...especially to extremities. Probably have to have amazing cardio.

That's what I was thinking. Perhaps the video is a little deceiving and makes it look as if he's going a lot deeper than he actually is. Not that I'm at all taking away from what this guy did.

Edit: nvm, Mugg74 with the explanation

I feel like this could be a "Sigur Ros" music video of some kind

I was watching it with Fljótavík playing actually, fit in much better

Thank you for posting this. For a second there I had a sinking feeling that he was not going to make it, but just like people in life, he came back to the surface. That's deep man.

I guess that sounded pretty stupid. But, I meant how he acts as if he is rock climbing when he can simply just swim up.

Oh my!

It matched up absolutely perfectly. I started these two videos at almost exactly the same time (maybe a second off at the most) and they fit perfectly together!

I highly recommend trying this if you are a Sigur Ros fan or just love this video.

Play these at the exact same time. Mute the volume of the diving video. Sit back, and be amazed

The pick-ups in the song match perfectly with him jumping off o the cliff and then landing at the bottom.

Mugg74, you have to learn to edit your posts and put more than one though into a post. You're not supposed to post twice in a row, but you're doing 3's and 4's.
