Austrian FreeDiver Herbet Nitch has become the first human to reach 600 feet (183m) in the FreeDiving No-Limits Discipline on 28th August.
Completing his dive in 3min 14sec off the waters of South Croatia, Herbert managed to completely explode his existing record of 172m.
No-Limits FreeDiving is the discipline where the freediver descends with the help of a ballast weight and ascends via a method of his choice. No limit is the absolute depth discipline. Going down with a sled, and going back up with a balloon, a diving suit or a vest with inflatable compartments, this discipline is probably the most spectacular FreeDiving discipline made popular by athletes such as Pipin Ferrarras.
