Its been a few years since I wrote my last adventure blog. After breaking my arm back in 2007, I had to take few years off rehabing my elbow. Some times you have to travel a few side roads to find your next life adventure.
And here it is!! Free Diving in the Cayman Islands, Deja Blue II event.
Back in Dec of 2009 I took a beginner/intermediate freediving course in Kona Hawaii with International instructors Kirk Kracken and Mandy-Rae Cruickshank. Learning all the safety and performance techniques in the art and human performance of the sport Freediving. The sport competes in many disciplines the 3 main being Static Breath hold (Time), Dynamic (Lateral distance), and Constant Ballast (Depth with Finns).. To learn more about freediving and The Deja Blue competition go to www.performancefreediving.com
Personal best so far

Dynamic - 68 m (Feb 2011, Vancouver competition)
Free Immersion(depth pulling down a line) - 40m (131ft), (Deja Blue II 2011, Grand Cayman)
