Yesterday, Loic Leferme, who last year broke the No-Limits record with -162 meters, dove to -171 meters in the No-Limit catergory at Villefranche-sur-mer...
Congrats to Loic!

That's awesome, congrats to Loic!

....the race to 200m is on!

Was this with AIDA?

Hope he gets 200m, that should get the news media buzzing.

edit: Apparently the above comment was worthy of neg karma? Pity the giver didnt have the balls to give a reason, or sign it...:naughty

Hey DeapestBear,
Did you dive with Loïc?
Sam told me you were going to Nice with Dave for the record. But I have not heard about you since.
Do you need a lift back to UK?
Let me know if so. I will go to Nice for Christmas
First Congratulations for Loic

Second thanks to Majo for the video link.

Third, does anyone know how was the security system in that dive. I didn´t see many SCUBA guys. Neither a Counterballast system, but I notice a lanyard on loic wrist. Any info?
HI Frank,

I'll be interview Loic for an DB interview and asking about his safety system among other things...

I believe there was a line attached to his wrist and in case of any problems it would pull him back up to the surface... it was kind of explained in the video... ish
Hi Pete I´ll be waiting for the interview.

Hi Matt, my french is very bad, I just enjoy the images
Hehehe so is mine... it didnt really go into detail, it was VERY vague... they just said something was attached to his wrist and that it would pull him up to the surface in case of any problems... weird

You are a big inspiration to all of us.

All my best wishes to you about many succeses to come.
