Free Diving

Free diving refers to any aquatic activity that requires the practice of breath-hold diving. Some free diving activities include spear fishing, free dive photography, snorkeling, and apnea competitions. Competitive apnea is considered to be an extreme sport. During these competitions, divers attempt to reach great depths on a single breath without using breathing devices. This activity garners more attention than other competitive free diving or apnea activities. Apnea falls into three categories: static, dynamic, and depth. Static apnea refers to timed breath holding, which normally takes place in pools; dynamic apnea is simply underwater swimming for distance and is also held in pools; depth apnea is further sub-categorized but mainly focuses on attempting to reach the farthest dept in a single breath.
