... I took a day to go freediving with Carlos, who's a ex world champion diver. It's rare to meet an athlete at the pinnacle of his sport, let alone train under one, so I leapt at the chance. The man is a ripped freediving machine, i suspect the guy is part fish. He's gone down to 100+m and makes the sport look easy. Unfortunately I was still recovering from my cold when I trained with him and couldn't dive for the first half of the session. Later my ears ...

Anyway, before he left, we went scouting down ...
... of actual survival that I not freak out and remain calm. That is what Scuba diving has taught me - not to panic, slow down and take the time to look at each area very closely and breathe slowly (to maximize diving time). You can miss a lot if you don't pay close attention. Brian has much better eyes for spotting things and there was a pretty big rockfish camouflaged in a sandy area that I would have missed.
