My interview with world free diving champion William Trubridge – Nov 06, 2012


Recently I had the honor of visiting the world’s best free diver. His name is William Trubridge. Trubridge is 31, he was born in the UK but raised in New Zealand, where he spent most of his early years on a sailboat. Today he spends most of his time in the Bahamas where he trains and teaches at the Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest sea water blue hole in the world situated in Long Island, a remote island two hours from Nassau by plane. He currently holds the world record in the ‘free immersion’ and the ‘constant weight without fins’ disciplines, and is the first human ever to break the 100-meter barrier unassisted. Trubridge won the ‘World’s Absolute Freediver Award’ (WAFA) in 2010 and 2011 making him the best all around diver. I recently spent a weekend with him to interview him and film him dive. I had been intrigued about this discipline for quite some time and wanted to understand what motivates human beings to push the boundaries of the humanly possible. This interview is part of a collection of short documentaries on extreme sport athletes.
