Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean's Blue Hole



This video of world champion freediver Guillaume Nery's special dive at Dean's Blue Hole is stunning. It's filmed entirely on breath hold by the French champion Julie Gautier and I feel like I am out of breath every time I watch this.

"Guillaume Nery and myself decided to use our time during a freediving competition at Dean's Blue Hole (deepest blue hole in the world) to make a short movie. Since a long time Guillaume wanted to make the link beween freeding and base jumping. Our goal was to emphasise on esthetic images and innovative camera moves." Julie Gautier


I've always had a thing for freedivers after watching
Luc Besson's Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue) many years ago. In my book, free divers along with surfers are the coolest people. I love what they do and always jealous of their capability.
