Is Pipin Ferreras Going for a new No Limits Freedive Record?

Following on from rumours that actor Jason Statham is going to play Pipin Ferreras in the movie version of “The Dive”, a picture has surfaced online that seems to indicate Pipin is going to go for a new World Record in No Limits (NLT) Freediving.

No Limits is the discipline of Freediving where a diver rides a weighted sled down to depth and is assisted up to the surface, like the recent record attempt where Herbert Nitsch was injured whilst attempting a 800ft/244m dive.

Unconfirmed sources have indicated that Pipin may well be trying for 250m which would significantly exceed his previous No Limits Freediving record of 170m in 2003.

    •  It’s been known for awhile now – Atleast among those who know Pipin.  Pipin has met and spearfished with Jason Statham on more than one occasion -There are pics out there. He’s also met with Salma Hayek – I don’t know if she’ll be playing Audrey – But that was the purpose of the visit before she became pregnant awhile back, James Cameron was along then too. I don’t know if Pipin will make the 250m mark – But I can almost guarantee he’s gonna take the record for No Limits – He’s hungry, he’s been training hard, he wants this like no one ever has wanted it. I wish him well!
