Default Free Diver William Trubridge


"This is why I free dive": A journey into the deep | William Trubridge | TEDxChristchurch


"Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hold your breath for
minutes on end, descending 300 feet and more under water?
In this extraordinary talk -- part meditation, part heart-stopping adventure
-- world champion freediver William Trubridge not only takes you there, but
offers a profound answer to the question: "Why do you do it?"

In 2005 William was the first freediver to dive at Dean's Blue Hole,
now recognised as the world's premier freediving venue and site of the
annual Vertical Blue event.
There he broke his first world record in the discipline of
CNF (Constant Weight No Fins) in April 2007, diving to 81m.
Since then he has broken this record multiple times. In 2010 he
became the first human to descend to 100m (330 feet) during
Project Hector, an event aimed at bringing awareness to the plight
of New Zealand's critically endangered Hector's and Maui's Dolphins
species. In July 2016 he furthered this record to 102m (334 feet) as
part of the Steinlager "Born to Defy" project, which was broadcast
live to New Zealand television. William also holds the world record in
Free Immersion, with 124m (406 feet), set at Vertical Blue in May 2016.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format
but independently organized by a local community...."
