Flying Under The Sea

Have you ever had that feeling of wanting to fly and soar up in the skies? Well, I’ve always wanted to do that. But because of the lack of budget, I have no idea when I’ll be able to realize that dream. I’ve seen some of my friends doing paragliding or riding parachutes and I could only stare in envy as I’m stuck.

It was a  good thing though that I discovered freediving. Freediving is somewhat fulfilling my dream of flying, but this time, it’s even more complicated as I had to fly underwater.

Huh??? Say what??? Yep! You heard me right. I get to fly under the sea! 😀

Yep, you can actually fly underwater. Here’s one photo showing my friend soaring like Superman. The only difference is that he’s not headed for outer space but just stopping his breath for a while as he resurfaces back to breath air before getting lost under again.

For those who are rather more adventurous, the thrill of knowing what’s at the bottom of the ocean gives me you that longing to go deeper and be on a high as you try to push limits and free dive to unknown depths.

Please don’t be misleaded. The next picture isn’t me, but of another friend donning her first long fins as she tries to check the bottom of the seabed. I took the picture though. 😀

Freediving gives me another meaning to photography. Although some prefer to take photos of underwater marine life, I don’t. I prefer capturing photos of people enjoying their time swimming under. Though I still take photos of different sea creatures, I only choose those that fancy my eyes. hehe.

But you know what’s best about flying freely under the sea? It’s that feeling of being young again and playing like you used to back when you were still a child. That innocence. Knowing that you can do whatever you want, not up in the air, but underneath the sea with only a single breath to last you a minute’s worth of pure ecstasy. That my friend is one of the perks you get to experience when you know how to freedive (or skin dive as some call it) 😀

P.S. Never Freedive ALONE!
