... air and dive as deep as you can with it, armed with just a pair of fins and a mask. Dorothy has mocked the sport, but I can assure you it's harder than you think. Good freedivers hold their breath for 8min and can dive to 80m regularly. Sometimes freedivers descend by pulling themselves down a line.
