Free divers

Free diving is a sport where one dives with no equipment other than a bodysuit, monofin and determination. As a scuba diver, I have a fair amount of respect for these people and what they can achieve and have had a close friend involved for a number of years in the sport. I do have some serious concerns about the implications of the effects of competition will have on peoples judgment. To be fair to the sport organizers, they will disqualify people who show effects after a competitive dive, which helps to limit the long term damage that could be done.
I do think that any serious scuba diver can learn useful stuff from free divers and the sports can compliment each other. Here is a read on a local girl who is seriously into the sport.
