For the Weird Fish 2016 photo shoot we loved Norway so much last year we ventured back there to explore more of the islands in the area of Alesund.
Each month we are picking someone we feel deserves some recognition, be they an established celebrity, or more of a local celeb – We want to thank these everyday heroes for the things they have achieved.
This month we turned our attention to a stockist and friend who has been with us from the very start, Jim Fountain.
Freediving or skin diving is a form of underwater diving where divers hold their breath for long periods of time, and rely on their own abilities rather than using breathing apparatus.
It is an ancient art that goes back to traditional fishing techniques such as spear fishing and oyster diving. The divers would practice meditative breathing techniques to improve their lung capacity, and ability to stay calm.
There are now a range of competitive competitions testing disciplines from deepest depths and longest time under.
We spoke to one freediver from our home town of Cheltenham – Adam Mustoe.
