    Coolest video on YouTube!!

    Ingenious!
    Would be easier just to learn to Freedive tho. :D

    I wonder what the max depth is, before it implodes and leaks!?

    No idea, but what I can tell you the spot where he launched is one of my favourite spearfishing spots - Buffels Bay in Cape Point, SA.

    The average depth of the area in the video where he is operating, the edge of the kelp beds, is round 7 to 10m.

    A very nice spot indeed. I stayed in a lovely chalet beside the river there a few years back. The fishing was great and we got plenty good size Geelbeck.
    All that yak needs is some externally mounted spear guns :)

    From the looks of it, this is a normal pressure sub, so there is no crush depth. However, the standard limits for scuba diving will apply.

    I love the fish-tail drive. Is that powered by his legs?

    That looks really awesome though there is so much that could go wrong with it. Would hate to have any failures will stuck in a cage!
