The World’s Deepest Merman


This week’s video is from freediving videographer Daan Verhoeven.

In the realm of freediving, some push the boundaries of human capability, venturing into depths that seem almost otherworldly. One such individual is Afa Zhang, a freediver, dancer, underwater performer, and mermaid/merman who has made a name for himself in the freediving community. 

This video, filmed during the Infinity Depth Games in Cyprus, showcases Afa’s attempt at a 30-meter (approximately 100 feet) dive by AIDA standards. This dive is believed to be the deepest ever attempted by a member of the merfolk community, a testament to Afa’s skill and dedication to his craft.

Set to the inspiring tune of ‘See me fly’ by Roza, the video is a captivating blend of artistry and athleticism, highlighting the beauty and challenges of freediving. Join us as we dive deeper into Afa’s story, exploring his passion for freediving, his training regimen, and the unique world of underwater performance.
