The most famous apnea sport is deep free diving, which was theme of the movie "Le Grand Blue". The great French diver Jaques Mayol reached to -102m in 1978 by the discipline of No Limits Variable Weight, now the record is grown to -150m which was set by Italian, Umberto Pellizari in October 24th, 1999.

No knowledge, no friend, dive alone - what a terrible situation it is! Our objective is to make the safe and good environments for free-divers and increase the people who really loves sea and nature.
