First ever freedive Everest, 148 x 100' dives in a day

Not technically spearfishing but closer to that world than competitive deep diving....

Made a video of the November 12, 2020 Freedive Everest performed here just of the coast of Los Angeles. It was 148 x 100' dives (counting each dive as 200' since freedivers work both on the way down and up) to travel the height of Mount Everest.

What a stunning accomplishment of endurance and conditioning and skill! I am amazed you did not get the bends. This is a record book accomplishment that will stand a long time. Endless respect to you for this feat!
