Hello to all DB members,

I have gone diving to local pool couple of times just because I have time and calories to burn after all that eating, so diving it was.. but as some of you might have noticed I don't take the sport too seriously, and usually dont do much static or dynamic apnea... I decided to try something else at the bottom of the local pool..

I know that empty lung dives are dangerous, but I hada buddy to cover my butt.. and the usual disclaimers..

So I did an empty lung dive (no reverse packing) just breathing out.. and once at the bottom I started walking along the bottom of the pool... worked fine so I developed it and did a flip first backwards then forward one, still no problems.. cartwheel was a disaster, but moves from Matrix worked wonders.. meaning walking on the walls and flip backwards with handstand..

Acrobatics is quite easy at the bottom of the pool, slow but looks interesting, especially if you awoid swimming with your hands, that always brakes the illusion..

Try it, it is fun and change for blowing bubble rings.. and training if you do such a thing.. :t

Have you tried it already? is there such sport?

Happy New Year to you all kind and cool people who post on these forums.

My favourite is the Luke Skywalker one handed handstand--then move to a one finger handstand...

I thought I was the only one - nice to know that the sport of underwater acrobatics is being developed. ;)

Thanks for giving me some inspiration of new things to do!
