New Video Freediving FL Springs

A few months ago, myself and a couple friends spent a weekend freediving every spring we could get to. We ended up with about 4 hours of useable footage, here is about 3 minutes of it. Disclaimer: Freediving in caves is dangerous. If you are wondering if you should try it or not, you probably shouldn't try it. One member of our group had a blackout on our second day. It was a pretty shallow dive for him (40ft or so) but he spent alot of time down there. He exited the cave in a hurry and was about 6ft from the surface when he samba'ed and the went completely still. We were on him within a couple seconds and everything was fine so he just snorkeled at the surface for the rest of that day.

Glad the B/O went well. Freediving in caves can be pretty sketchy... I love the scenery and cool caves/caverns/holes, but I do enjoy the open water better thats for sure!
