the french guy is Christian Charras, he is attempting 60m unassisted constant in a couple of weeks. Saw him training this weekend.

we at saltFree have taken up the challenge and are all going to have a go at unassisted this weekend! keep posted for the results! however I'm sure its much harder in 5ml suits..

what sort of depths was Christian reaching?
Sam Still has been getting into unassisted recently. he's done 41 twice now- in a 5/3mm with no weight.

Confused...

Have a look at this:

(http://www.omegawatches.com/omega/userEvent?ID=23688)

"After beating Italian Nicola Brischigiaro’s existing world record for freediving under ice by five metres, he moved straight to his second record attempt – with the aid of a scooter – and reached a depth of 150 metres (the previous world record was 100 metres)! "

After reading the Omega article, it would appear that Christian Redl told Omega that he dived 90m and 150m DEEP, as opposed to horizontally. It no doubt reinforced his sponsorship as Austria's up and coming champion (or so it says in the article).

IF you look at the pictures you can see that he also did the record on a Farallon scooter. The last guy who tired it , that I saw, was using a Dacor Seasprint. This is more of a difference in scooters than breath hold.

When is someone going to try it on a Gavin?;)

To be honest, I am not a distinct fan of Christian Redl's "athletic" performances. But I must clarify that the "150m depth thing" is clearly a mistake made by Omega. I was present at the ice records as was the PR consultant of Omega Austria. It was obvious to everybody incl. this marketing lady that the dives were executed horizontally - so the statement on Omega's website is not a product of Christian's marketing strategy. Lake Weissensee is a crystal clear lake with visibilities of around 20 meters and a perfect setting for ice diving as it is always covered by ice from November to March (20 - 40cm). The lake is 86m deep by the way - so no way of doing 90-150 in depth.

Depth of Lakes

Maximum Depth of Weissensee: 99mt
Maximum Depth of Wörthersee: 86mt

has nothing to do with the argument about the "records", it's just information.

I tried to put together all the info about record attempts.

The results are on this page :duh :duh

Honestly, when a great freediver like Herbert announces 30 meters... I really don't know what to think. Ten days ago, a member of our Forum tried CB without fins for his first time and did 38m.

Ok, AIDA, FREE and IAFD ignore each other..... but I guess freedivers should show more respect for each other and go for *real* records. Otherwise, someone might think that some so-called records are attempted just for a fistful of dollars.

PS Next month Alessandro Rignani Lolli should go for a.....DIVE in CB below 93 meters.

All the best ...

To direct this thread towards a brighter direction: I would like to wish all the best to David Lee and the entire F.R.E.E. - safety crew for the upcoming record attempt in unassisted constant ballast. I would also like to wish a full recovery and plenty of great dives to Yasemin.

regards
Gerald

You're right, I see now (53 are less than 60 anyway)

------------
the numbers on your page are outdated and the numbers have no real meaning until the last prerequisite dive was done or one week before the attempt.
------------

I got them from the page you are linking 10 days ago!
I was just trying to undestand and make other people understand what's going on. Noway.

-----------
So please don't discredit freedivers

I don't discredit anyone! I don't take their decisions.

Herbert did his CWWF Prerequisite Dive to 50m (16.08.2003) - his first and only dive in this discipline up to now ...

Ok, here we go, I don't tell bullshit and I don't like to appear as an unreliable fellow.

Google cache is really useful.

I'd like to post the link, but there seems to be a problem. I put it here anyway

http://www.google.it/search?q=cache...url:www.aida-international.org&hl=it&ie=UTF-8[/url]

Maybe Herbert changed his mind after the 50 m dive, but he had announced 30 meters.

And good luck to Herbert and anyone else that's doing real world-class attempts at actual disciplines.
Cheers,

one of our divers at saltfree did just over 30m unassisted this weekend in a murky green cold lake with a 5ml suit on.

Go Mark!

Topi Lintukangas 60 meters

hi,
am i right that topi did 60 meters unassited? thats would be easily a world record, maybe it will be broken in a few days, but it is still 27 meters more then current one.
didnt he announce a wr? is it "only" a national record?
i am not sure what he did, because i havent seen the whole video, my internet is too slowly!! but they write it was constant weight without fins and this dephts seems to be possible for the real big guys, doesnt it?
please tell me i understand something wrong.
greets mat
