SwimSwam Film Fest: Freediving the Abyss

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short swimming and free diving video, Freediving the Abyss, captured by SSI Freediving.

I am always on the lookout for great swim videos. If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video, please submit to Gold Medal Mel Stewart at swimswam to be featured. We appreciate all points of view on pools, lakes, rivers and oceans. Please include a little background on why you captured the video and the equipment you used (cameras, lens, editing software, etc.). Feel free to add your own story as well.

From the producers:

Watch 4 Freediving professionals swim in unison beneath the Blue Hole’s infamous Arch at a depth of 60m! Through dedication and perseverance 25 divers from around the world collaborated to achieve this breathtaking feat. The possibilities of the sea are truly limitless!
