Started reading “Deep.” A birthday present from Patrick Brown
It’s stories about freediving: No fins, scuba, nothing. Not 20’ deep either. Hundreds! Their bodies actually change from the pressure. Stay tuned for updates as I’m reading.
“They freedive because it’s the most direct and intimate way to connect with the ocean. During that three minutes beneath the surface (the average time it takes to dive a few hundred feet), the body bears only a passing resemblance to its terrestrial form and function. The ocean changes us physically, and psychically.”
