    Yes - she was amazing but I just don't understand the riskiness of it. Good on her for trying it though, seems she was hooked by the end.

    As someone who can't even paddle/swim in the sea or river because of not knowing what is beneath me....

    Yes I'm the same - can't swim in water if I can't see the bottom

    I'd be so worried about not making it back up to the surface in time. 35m when you're scuba-ing is scary to me as you are so far from air.
    Not sure of the risks of pressure with free diving? I guess you have to ascend slowly to stop you bursting your ear-drums.
    So many what ifs for me.
