No limit and variable is by far some of the best dives I have had. Last time I followed a stone down to 50 meters and had a nice slow swim back up. Actually beeing able to spend some energy "experiencing" a deep dive is nice (I usually dive with closed eyes).

BUT - I am the guy who recently voiced my opinion that AIDA should stop verifying No limits and variable weights. My arguments are:
1) It is not as much an athletic discipline as the others.
2) It is more likely to claim deaths than the other disciplines.
What I am saying is that I think NLT VWT should go on, but be ratified by another organization (As far as I have seen the FREE rules are more focused on safety than the AIDA, but FREE has stopped with ratifying these records).
I think AIDA should follow and be the "competition organization" and promote the sportive side, not the records (we will se less and less of them).
If AIDA is linked to another death during a comp or record it will take longer getting the sport accepted as anything else as a daredevil lifestyle thing.
There will be two kinds of media attention. Most of it will fall on the spectacular NLT/VWT records done by specatacular women ;-)
Another kind of media attention will be focused on the SPORT and be dealt by by SPORTJOURNALISTS not the lifestyle angle or scientific angle.
I am sure Tanya trains hard and has a talent to explore. But it is alot of technical and organizational challenges (economical) in NLT. As someone said - flood your sinuses and hold you breath.
About flooding your sinuses - you can never totally flood all your cavities. And not with a mask, you need to hold you (nose Clip). Check this Yoga cleansing process;
It should be the same salinity as the body (2%). Ocean water has 4% but it can do but is not that healthy. Cold water can also cause other problems (nasuea, balance problems?)
