I just talked with a friend of mine here in Kona. He is a newbie to the sport of freediving and is doing quite well. He has been practicing statics. He told me that yesterday he achieved his personal best static of 3:06. This is only his third attempt at a long static. This story doesn't sound all that special now does it. The problem is that he did his 3:06 while riding his motorcycle. :naughty

Needless to say, I gave him a good verbal scolding and to any newbies out there don't drive or ride a motorcycle and try doing statics. IT'S VERY DANGEROUS!!
