Herbert Nitsch’s “Breitling Extreme 800” Event Announced


Hebert Nitsch announced earlier in the year that he was travelling to Santorini, Greece to prepare for a new record attempt and test out his new high tech Freediving No-Limits Sled.

Today a trailer was released on YouTube that shows how the preparations are going as well as to announce the “Breitling Extreme 800” event, where Herbert will attempt an 800 ft / 244 m No Limits dive in 2012.  This event is the next stop in his journey to break the 1000 ft / 305 m No Limits Freediving barrier.

Herbert is sponsored by Breitling and appears in various print adverts for the manufacturer of premium watches.
