Terry Maas is a veteran freediver. He started diving when he was 14 years old and has been freediving steadily for the last 47 years. In his early years Terry won the individual U.S. National Spearfishing championships 4 times and held 3 world records for yellowfin and bluefin tuna. In 1995, Terry published his first book, BlueWater Hunting and Freediving. Several years later he published his second book on the subject of freediving called Freedive. He is currently working with a broad coalition of national and international freedivers to develop a vest for the management of freediver blackout. This device is analogous to a biker’s helmet, a skydiver’s back-up safety chute, and the car driver’s airbag. Initial prototype testing is underway after an investment of over 3 years of product development and research. See http://www.oceanicss.com
