Throwback To Fatima Korok's -81m FIM Dive
Free Immersion, a favorite discipline among many freedivers. For the newbies who are not aware what FIM is, "in Free Immersion, the freediver is allowed to use the rope for both the descent and ascent, but must keep the same weight throughout the dive and cannot use fins to assist them. Despite the emphasis on the small muscle groups of the upper body, the advantage of using the rope mean that FIM dives are usually almost as deep as CWT. Divers will usually pull down to between 20 and 25m on the descent and then freefall the rest of the way to the bottom using their negative buoyancy".
Watch Alchemy freediver Fatima Korok bag a National Record for Hungary, diving down to a staggering -81m during the last Aida World Depth Championships in France.

One of our favorite underwater content creators, Daan Verhoeven, just released a remixed video, based on one of his classics. Filming freediver Stig Pryds at the El Bells in Dahab, Daan captures some sublime shots of him freefalling through the majestic landscape. In his very own words "2 years ago Stig Pryds and i filmed a sort of underwater wingsuit proximity flight thing. It was the first time i had more than a few hours to shoot a video; we filmed every day after his training for more than a week, so i had lots of coverage. As you can imagine, a lot of footage ended up on the editing room floor, so to speak. I went over that footage the other day, and fell the thrill of filming it again, that wonderful feeling of seeing an idea come to life, and the awe for the insane skill Stig displays. I'd just heard a great song on a site where i find the music for the videos i make, and i felt like spending another week with this idea, coming at it from another angle - all other angles! So here it is, my first remix - hope you enjoy".
