A video of my turns at the bottom plate.. still need to work on many things especially streamlining and effective tag taking and keeping.. I think I need to wear the lanyard on my right leg instead for #FIM and #CNF for more comfortable turn.. @boguszowa mentioned that it looks like I was diving to 25-35 meters - I move so slow.. hahaha.. rushing is not helpful I guess? But I need to be more effective, definitely. 😁 thanks to @0gueng for making such wonderful video! Song that I used is by Houses - Soak It Up #freedive #indonesia #competition #asianfreedivingcup2017 #apneaculture @freedivepanglao @molchanovs.russia #wetsuit #freedive #freedivingindonesia #CWT

I've been wanting to share this moment - minutes before my dive, and @0gueng hyung 😝 finally made it happen! Pressure in a freediving competition is real. Swimming down and up as far as an 8-10 stories building itself is challenging and requires your well-trained body and mind, so having that additional pressure is not helping especially because in this unique sport, adrenaline rush will only be a hindrance (adrenaline rush = stress and increased heart rate = not good for freediving) unlike in other sports where adrenaline rush could give you the extra boost that you need. Instead of letting myself got stressed and pressured, I just smile~! 😊 Smile because I know my coach and friends are there to cheer for me, smile because the judges and safety team are there for me (and me only during my performance), smile for all the amazing and joyful training sessions that I've done, smile that the 'Higher Being' allows me to be there and taste the beauty of the blue element once more. It is a humbling experience that I'd suggest others to try. 😊| Video: @0gueng | Music: Nicolai Heidlas - Take The Chance #nicolaiheidlas #nicolaiheidlasmusic #freediving #freedive #asianfreedivingcup2017 #apnea #apneaculture #breatheup #competition #indonesia #indonesianfreediver @freedivepanglao @apneaculture @molchanovs.russia

She dove to -61m when I took this photo I think.. When I checked the results (I took a burst shot) and saw the flow of her movement, man.. it is beautiful! :) It takes time to develop a skill, years maybe, which means that it took a lot more to develop multiple skills.. in freediving we have to be relax, efficient, strong mentally and physically, adapted to pressure, lots of things.. it takes repetitions, slow progression, and resilience to overcome the barrier, obstacles, and stresses that we may encounter along the way. Hope to see you again in Japan next year, Yuki @nonsugarsnow ! Pan Pac 2018, okay! 😊 taken during #asianfreedivingcup2017 #panglao @freedivepanglao #freedive #freediving #freedivingart #competition #CWT #apnea #apneaculturenfriends #apneaculture @sonyphotogallery @sonyalpha #sonyphotogallery #sonya7rii @subal_underwater_housing #subal #subal_underwater_housing #underwaterphotography #underwater

When you first learn freediving, do not expect your skills and technique would be comparable to those you saw in the videos or photos somewhere around the internet (all the amazing shots and clips I mean).. it is a learning process from doing something wrong until it is correct. From a short 30 seconds breath hold, into a comfortable 2 minutes or even more. 😊 From kicking like a cycler into an impeccable finning flow. It takes time and effort; and observant eyes which know how to improve and give you small tips. It is our duty as instructors to make you feel secure and comfortable - give the right atmosphere to help you relax and enjoy each and every dive you do. So, make a good use of us! 😁in frame: @asrialdilaputri doing her feet first free immersion with @yuujifujito supervision during #deepweek with @adamfreediver in #amed #bali taken with @sonyalpha #sonya7rii with @subal_underwater_housing #subal #subal_underwater_housing #freedive #freediving #apnea #apneaculturenfriends #indonesia #indonesianfreediver #underwater #underwaterphotography #ig_mirrorless #sonyphotogallery

In the past, I told people that SCUBA diving is preferable if they are interested in underwater photography. But it was before I discovery that you can do lots of cool things and added benefit if you do underwater photography while freediving! Communication between team, model, etc is easier, you can manoeuvre and find the best angle swiftly, you don't have a problem with bubbles getting inside your frame, and many other things. I don't say it's better.. I'd say it's different. :) and I think there weren't many underwater photographers who are freedivers or took their shots while freediving.. I know a few now, but she was one of the first that I met in person and saw in action! She's super talented in photography and now she's also doing some competitive freediving (I guess?). Check out her instagram account @iamjuliawheeler ! You'll be amazed!!!

The ocean provides shelters, it provides food, it provides life. It is full of wonders, happiness, and excitements! It is a mystery but a beautiful one that makes us (human) curious. We should take a good care of it! Love our ocean, love our life! In frame is @windybello ! The first time she came here, she mainly stayed at the surface, watching bubbles and people going down and play in the wreck. I can tell that she wanted to do it as well. When she came back a few weeks ago, there's no hesitation, no fear, or worry in her eyes. What I saw was excitement and smiles. Freediving takes time to develop but the more you do it, the better your body adept and be more comfortable with it. Have fun and enjoy the process. It will taste sweeter in the end. :) #sonya7rii #subal #sonyphotogallery #subal_underwater_housing #ig_mirrorless #freedive #freediving #freedivingart #apnea #apneaculturefamily #tulamben #usatlibertywreck #fundive #underwaterphotography #underwater #happyoceanday @subal_underwater_housing @sonyalpha

Azam finning down with his cool @molchanovsfreediving @molchanovs.russia @molchanovs.freediving.us monofin. I try to keep up with the growth and variety of freediving equipment, but man.. they are just too much! However, if most athletes using the same brand in a comp, and all of them agree that it is comfortable, nicely fit, and efficient, the possibility that it is not true would be very little, don't you think? πŸ€”πŸ˜Š in this picture alone, I am pretty sure that there is at least another molchanovs monofin and molchanovs carbon bifins! #molchanovsmonofin #molchanovs #freedive #freediving #apnea #equipment #monofin #asianfreedivingcup2017 #panglao taken with Sony A7Rii #sonya7rii #sonyphotogallery #subal #subal_underwater_housing @subal_underwater_housing #ig_mirrorless

He was the deepest man ever recorded in Indonesia. He's been trying to match his dive record to match Indonesian independence day anniversary.. it's been 3 years that he tried: 69, 70, and 71m and he hadn't managed to reach it within the time frame. But finally this year he managed to go down as deep as -72 meters with just 1 breath and the power of his will and arms in Free Immersion discipline. He broke the Indonesian National Record in Free Immersion, got himself a nice weightbelt, joyful and satisfaction of accomplishment, and respects from all other athletes, friends, including me of course! He has his own way of approaching and seeing things that might be hard to discern but never he has a bad intention for whatever he was doing. Much respect to you, @stanley_sradaputta ! A true Indonesian spirit! πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š #apneaculturenfriends #apnea #freedivingindonesia #freedive #freediving #freedivingart #asianfreedivingcup #2017 #panglao #sonya7rii #sonyphotogallery #subal #subal_underwater_housing @subal_underwater_housing @sonyphotogallery @sonyalpha @sonyalpha_id #ig_mirrorless
