Venezuela, October 23, 2004 -At approximately 12:15 pm Oct 23, Carlos Coste achieved 135 meters in Variable Ballast, riding a weighted sled into the depths of the Carribean sea and returning to the surface under his own power in 4:08 seconds.

The performance was clean and beat the current record of 120 meters handily however unfortunately both of the offical surface cameras did not document the dive sufficiently for   ratification. As a result the dive will not count as a world record.

Carlos will reattempt the world record Wednesday.
