When you surf it is very usefull to have a certain fitness level and a high lung capacity. If you geht pushed under water by a wave you might hold your breath for a while. Guillaume Nery from France is one of the best in this discipline. He can hold his breath for up to 8 minutes! He is one of the most successfull apnoe divers worldwide. Apnoe is the term for the period of time the diver holds his or her breath. Some people admire Guillaume for his courage, others criticise him for having such a dangerous obsession. We at FreshSurf in El Cotillo just find it fascinating and literally breathtaking!
