    Nicely filmed and edited but Julie did certainly not film this in one breath hold like Guillaume has done his dives. The heading however suggests that she did.
    For me a question is how Guillaume can sink so quickly (no swimming/no fins !) with only 1 block of weight on his back.
    I estimate that block on max 2 kg.
    His 'neoprene' wet suit probably contains lead i.s.o. air bubbles :smile: (otherwise he has lead bones :D)

    It is 100% not one take, but a great video to attract sponsors...

    Rhoody 3mm shorty --> 1.5 kg weight... secret ... Balls of Steal :smile: and no beans or Red Horse the day before diving :D

    Most of that skinny guys don't need any weight and sink like a rock with a 3mm long.
    BTW, the new modern wetsuits are not neoprene and don't contain air bubbles. you can get 0.5mm thick ones isolating like a 3mm.

    Great video, I had to send it to many friends I used to do a lot of free diving with. 1 take or 12 it's fantastic~ Thanks

    How does he do it without needing to equalize his air cavities, unless that is edited out. Also no mask must be more comfortable but still the pressure.

    Really enjoyed the video. After watching it, I had to look up Dean's Blue Hole then rewatch to really appreciate what was happening. Very cool, thanks
