Freediving

Freediving

Freediving is any of various aquatic activities that share the practice of breath-hold underwater diving. The first nation which was famous for it was the Haenyeo in Korea. They collected shells and sponges to sell to others. The Ama Divers from Japan began to collect pearls 2000 years ago. But also the spearfishers around the Mediterranean Sea were important for the historical background for the movement of the apnea diving.
