Freediving under ice – Extremall 2018 – preview

Also in 2018, once again in the waters of Lake Hancza, freedivers will enjoy frosty depth and time diving in a particularly frosty event called – “Extremall”.

On the last weekend of January, 26-27, freedivers will dive freely under the ice for the eighth time. The goal of the main competition is to dive in any thick suit to a depth of 15 metres and stay under the surface as long as possible – on one breath of course.

The winner will be the one who overcomes the cold and the urge to breathe longer than the other competitors. And for the daredevils, a second competition will be held – in this one, the rules will be very similar, but with one small difference… the competitors will have to dive in their swimsuit only!

How many truly ‘extreme’ divers will get the courage this year? How long will the best freedivers be able to stay breathless under the ice? Will they beat the best results from the edition 2 years ago, which were over 3 minutes? And the most important question… will we be lucky with ice in 2018!

We will find out at the end of January, and all those interested are encouraged to participate and cheer.
