Here Here Eric, I couldn't agree more. There isn't much point in having rules if they don't apply to everyone equally.

Karl, congratulations on an astounding performance. There is probably small solace in this but, whether it was recognized in the competition or not the freediving community is aware of what you accomplished. Best of luck in the future.

Frank,

Give these words to Karl.

The reason to compete in a freediving competition is not to beat other people, but to compete against yourself, to prove to yourself that you can perform at a high standard, against other people, in the stress of a competition. Karl proved to himself that he can do that. He received the most points in the static competition. That should satisfy him. He knows he is the winner. It makes no difference if the result is not officially recognized. The trip was not in vain. He did what he trained to do. He succeeded.

Eric's translation in ispanish

HI Eric -I translated the message you posted before about karl's performance in ispanish.

La razon para competir en una competencia de free diving no es mucho ganarle a otras personas ,sino competir en contra de ti mismo,para probarte tu mismo que puedes competir con un alto nivel en contra de otros,en la rigidez de la competencia Karl se probo el mismo que el puede hacer eso.El recibio la mayor cantidad de puntos en la estatica.cosa que lo satisface-El sabe que el es un ganador.no hace la diferencia si el resultado no fue oficialmente reconocido.El viaje no fue en vano.El hizo todo para lo que fue entrenado ,y tuvo exitos.

that's that im planing

Hi Ivan ..That's what im planing -to go back to cuba to do spearfishing-using all the technique I learned from all my freedivers friends-good ones.

People ask me if i belong to a team but im not...there is no team where i live-nj-and the people doesn't know to much about free diving..just scuba diving.

Im working now on my unassited-using the breastroke the kick they use for that -trying to put the best pocition of my bodyi can for swiming-and combining this with the dolphin kick ....
Try that out --you -is very fony --you going to see that with only a few strokes you reach the other side of the pool......It takes me 4 or 5 strokes to get the 25 meters....

Daniel- where in NJ are you? We have a group that dives at Dutch Springs in Bethlehem, PA. At most it would be a two hour drive for you. A few of the guys live in NJ also. We dive every weekend and the place we dive in is lots of fun.

What he said

Daniel,

I just want to echo what Jim said. We dive together all the time. Two of the guys in the group (Volodya and I) like doing unassisted dynamics too. I agree with your observation that it only takes a few strokes to get across the pool if you have a good glide.

It just so happens that the Philadelphia area is kind of a little-known "hot-spot" for freediving in the U.S.

At any rate, the water is just getting decently warm. It was about 10-11 C yesterday. Not Cuba, but tolerable in a 3mm wetsuit if you stay above 10M. The lake goes down to about 31M at the deepest spots, but when you get below 10m you need to be using a 5mm open-cell suit.
