anyone that does this kind of dive deserves a little more respect than they seem to be receiving from readers of this board.
Anyone can do a dive to 100´, but start diving below 100 meters (300´) and you start to have to know what you are doing. It is certainly not a dificult thing to go deep, but it is difficult to plan to come back safely.
I do not condone ameteurs and wannabees to copy this, but neither should this be called a stunt. This is no stunt, this is an extraordinary achievement that requires a huge amount of dicipline, planning and nerve. stupidity has nothing to do with it. if there was an ounce of stupidity, he would have killed himself years ago.
anyone that thinks this is a stunt really hae no idea what is involved and are showing your ignorance of technical deep diving.
Give credit where credit is due.
