Ocean Gravity

Feb 5, 2015

Freediving, the act of underwater diving in which the diver holds his breath for an ungodly amount of time, is already hard enough. But now imagine doing it as undersea currents push your body however they see fit. Don’t imagine it, watch Guillaume Néry do it.

It was the swift currents through Tiputa pass, part of the Rangiroa atoll about 220 miles northeast of Tahiti, where Néry did his thing, with director and videographer Julie Gautier following along. The speed with which Néry gets moved along the ocean floor is more than impressive, as his still body moves at a clip normally reserved for some kind of motorized assistance. Crave more Ocean Gravity? Néry and Gautier have behind-the-scenes footage on their website.
