Manual of Freediving: Underwater on a Single Breath

Product Description

Imported from USA


September 2012 Legendary filmmaker James Cameron (Titanic, Terminator, Avatar) gave a video message to
legendary freediver Umberto Pelizzari and talking about his amazing pioneering work as a competitive freediver as well
as his Manual of Freediving . .... Ciao Umberto, It is Jim Cameron here and I m sorry I missed getting this video ready
in time for your party, but I m sure you had a great time anyway. I just wanted to add my voice to all those who are
celebrating you and your accomplishments. You are one of the great pioneers opening the frontier of human adaptation to
the depths. Not only as a champion athlete but as a teacher and a guide. Your book Manual of Freediving is my new Bible
and I take it with me whenever I spend time in the sea. May be I can film you underwater sometime and show the world a
man truly at one with the Ocean. Thanks for all you are doing. Bravo, Ciao. Ci vediamo dopo. --Umberto Pelizzari

The most comprehensive text ever written on the sport of apnea also known as breath-hold or freediving. --Pierce Hoover,
