Meet the ‘BASE-jumping’ freediver Guillaume Néry

Free-diving has long captured the public imagination and with good reason.

There is something uniquely entrancing about the sport of diving to impossible depths on a single breath of air. Descending to the darkness of the ocean floor is not just a physical thing – it has almost a mystical quality.

This is especially true for French freediver Guillaume Néry. The video of him freediving into the world’s largest bluewater sinkhole mimicking a BASE jumper has so far garnered over 21 million views.
