Is This The Toughest Spearfishing Diver In The World?
When we interviewed 13-time World Record Spearfishing holder Cameron Kirkconnell (you can watch that interview here), he told us something pretty funny that we won’t forget…
“You won’t see any overweight people as professional spearfishing divers…”
And that fact couldn’t ring more true in regards the spearfishing diver in this video! The guy doesn’t have an ounce of fat on him!
This video is an excerpt from the BBC documentary on the nomadic, seafaring tribe known as Bajau (otherwise known as the real “Waterworld” people). They live their entire lives in and around the ocean, and they have trained their bodies to adapt to living almost solely on the ocean.
What is so incredible about this video isn’t the fact that this man named Sulbin can hold his breath for many minutes, but the fact that he does all of his hunting (aka spearfishing) with no fins, no nice equipment, no wetsuits, no weight belts, no nothing…
Just himself and an old speargun.
Note: Do NOT try this at home, and Do NOT walk on the ocean floor or touch coral like he does.
P.S. – Please share with a friend that likes diving.
