The competition will take place on Saturday, February 21 at noon at the Nautical Ventures Pool. Thirteen-time World Record Freediver Martin Stepanek and World Record Spearfisherman Cameron Kirkconnell will host the event.
Local certified free divers will go head-to-head in dual-elimination, breath-hold heats. Spectators will be able to participate in a raffle to win prizes like Yamamoto wetsuits, carbon fiber fins, and Bahamian pole spear packages.
“This promises to be an exciting afternoon of entertainment for a great cause,” according to Stepanek.
F.I.I. Freediving Facility FLORIDA FREEDIVERS, Nautilus Spearfishing, Lauderdale Diver, World of Freediving, Austin’s Diving Center, Drift Freediving, IN-SEA Apparel and Freediving Instructors & Consultants are the sponsors of the competition.
All the money raised will go to Dive Wise, to bring attention to the importance of freediving safety awareness.
