No matter how you slice it. Maybe in Hawaii or Florida where there's some vis, would having someone in the general vicinity while freediving be considered a "buddy"

But I don't consider freediving to be solo-ing. It may be stupid, but the only thing a buddy is going to do on a freedive hunting trip is narrow the search for the recovery team.

I have freedive hunted alone. I do freedive hunt alone. And I will continue to freedive hunt alone. Especially when the person who's supposed to go with me shows up with "sinus issues."

Hmmm, there's an interesting question. Does solo freediving preclude one from being DIR? I don't think so, but I have somewhat of a bias.
