  1. WOWW! I never thought that was possible! I thought 6/7mins was max. I wonder how he felt after a certain period of time? Was it like shifting into a different world? Would love to hear about what it felt like! My husband did 4:30 a few days ago, longest he’s ever done on the surface of the water and he said after awhile he felt like he was breathing he kept checkin to see if the snorkel was in his mouth. I was so amazed watching him hold his breath for that long. it was surreal!
