Days better spent reflecting on morning shark dives, exploring coastlines and miles of empty beach with the one I love. Log out and try to get outside this weekend y'all. Nature has tons to show and tell us. We just have to show up and listen. ✨

Next dive of the championship was CWBF or diving with fins. This was the discipline I made biggest progress this year, and it's the easiest to preform for me, but because I did my goal at being among top 6 already with no fins, I decided to skip this dive and rest a bit for the last dive, the FIM discipline. The main reason for skipping was also another light squeeze in the no fins discipline. In all other dives you're not allowed to touch the rope, but in FIM(free immersion) you progress by pulling along the rope down and up. To close the deep season I announced -81 meters, something safe for my lungs and very easy to do, so I can enjoy my last deep dive in the competition. I did a great dive and was placed  7th with a new national record. On the photo you can see me recovering with oxygen in hyperbaric conditions 3 meters deep. After deep dives some freedivers like to recover with hyperoxia treatments like this. I took a moment to enjoy the blue silence a bit more before heading back. Although, you can never feel silence with a SCUBA tank with all the respirator sounds and bubbles around you:/ But, at least its blue:) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography @diveeasy #deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

The WC continues! It took a few days to set things up, to adjust the winch systems, to assemble and train in a refreshed safety team, to work out other issues... But in the end, CMAS tried hard to put things together and make the best out of a bad situation, and after having that done, I think we had a great wc in amazing conditions. My first dive was CNF - no fins, most demanding discipline in all aspects and most stressful for the lungs/throat but I enjoy it so much. I finally came early enough to dress up and prepare for my dive so I felt more relaxed then days before. I announced a PB at -70 m. Approaching the line @johnnydeep110 meets me as the new chief of safety, cracks a joke, asks me where I would prefer the first safety, hands me the line and wishes a good dive. This kind of atmosphere, confidence and information you need from a safety diver, and since he is a master at safety and diving, he understands this, and this makes dives much more enjoyable. I like to know when they meet me because sometimes its hard to know your depth, when to release air etc. The weather is perfect and I cant wait to hear my top time, and when its like this I know my dive is going to be amazing. I easily reach my tag, have fun with the safety team on the way up and glide all the way to the judges platform. I cant wait for my lungs to adapt a bit more so I can make deeper CNF dives... CNF and DNF are like meditation for me, even though its quite more demanding then diving with fins... This dive gets me to 5. place overall and my main goal at being in top 6 is checked after the first dive. Congrats to all athletes sharing the line with me on that day:) Now to see what happens with other dives in the championship. . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography @diveeasy #deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Many people ask me if I see any fish down there... Well this is how it looks in training or competition. I will mostly have my eyes closed if all is good. I'll open them on the ascending phase of the dive. With no googles or mask, I cant see clear anyway, so my only focus is what happens inside my body and the rope in front of me to make sure I'm on the right line and my speed is good. Specially when I start the freefall and my mouthfill is packed and locked, my vision and focus becomes so tunneled I usually don't even remember that part of the dive. I'm somewhere else, enjoying myself. There is a saying that SCUBA divers go down to look around, while freedivers go down to look inside, and this is very true. Well, anyway, after the first dive, you would think either the organizers or me would learn a lesson, but nothing happened in that direction. Next day dive I decided to choose a super easy depth and just completely enjoy the dive. I realized I'll be late for the dive again, my transfer boat was late again and I refuse to wake up before the last minute to take the earlier boat... Since now I expected this in a way, I was a bit more relaxed, and skipped warm up. The judges even offered me 2 minutes extra to prepare, I guess they felt bad for me rushing on my line right from the boat. I went for a very shallow dive of 65m with fins, just to make sure my lungs are ok, because on the earlier dive I had a squeeze problem again because of all the rush around and not being able to relax fully. So this was my test for lungs, relaxation and making sure my equalization is flawless. All went ok and I was mentally already in the World championship. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography @diveeasy #deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Wow, it's been a while. Sorry. Just crazy with transfers, competition, bad coverage, things to do... Ok, so after Ibiza I've had a short brake and didn't dive at all and then flew to Turkey for Kas Baska competition. Since this competition was just before the world cup, many of the elite athletes did it for training, and this was my intention as well. Freediving competitions have a charming organization habit - it's messed up. When combined together with my own easy going approach it results in me regularly being late at my start time. My transfer boat was late and after putting on my suit on the way I jumped into the water, skipped warm up, and did my dive. Even though the dive wasn't that nice, I was quite unrelaxed and it didn't feel good at all, I managed to get to my announced depth and get a white card. Worst dive of the season, but, a successful one as far as the judges concern. Not the opening I hoped for, but I had my taste of the perfect sea conditions in front of Kas. I was 4th over all on the first day, and it was time to turn to the next day. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography @diveeasy #deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

K E E P G O I N G during times of challenge or change. It takes courage to chase dreams and stamina to reach goals. 🙌🏼 Repost @maverick2go: Well, It's been busy. The world championships were amazingly organised and out team made great results and many PB's. The elephant in the room was me:/ I managed to black out in my first dive, meaning I can't compete in any of the remaining disciplines. This was quite unfortunate for me, specially because I wanted a clean and safe dive, and the black out came so very sudden... I did again go over the WR, and maybe somewhere in my mind I wanted that WR and ignored getting out earlier... I don't think so, but its of course possible. For many reasons this was the worst possible scenario for me, specially in the first discipline and it got me down. But this is sport, and failure is a part of success as well. Getting up from a fall is what makes us stronger. My team made me proud to be there with them: @d_custic with a silver in DNF and gold in DYNBF and a new WR - at least I was successful as a coach if not as an athlete this time:); also @mirelakardasevic winning gold and silver, @gorancolak of course didn't disappoint with 2 golds and a silver, @lidija_lijic_ making 2 PB's which is amazing after all those years in the sport, @budimirbudasobat the most emotional medal, a bronze in STA. Enes Cerimagic and @ivanaaljinovic and @milosicboris  all made PB's and Vanja Peles PB's were just short of the podium... @mihaelaromic did a good warm up for the depth season... What better to do at a big tournament like this... Now, a short breath and focusing forward on the next game. One step at the time. . . . . #bestfreedivegear #apneaaddicts #underwater #tanksbutnotanks #angelsofthesea #freedive #molchanovs #freedivingphotography #deeperblue #uwphotography #uwshots #deepbluesea #underwaterphotography #oceanlife #oceanfun #oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives #oceanimagery #freedivingart #MadeOfOcean #freediverlife #xpncroatia #TurningTheTide #saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport

Well after training in Cavtat I had maybe a full day only to repack and get on a plane to Ibiza, where the first edition of Molchanova Grand Prix in freediving will take place. The competition is founded by @molchanovsfreediving and it hopes to become a tradition, and definitely will set some new standards in freediving. It's an honor for me to get invited to such an event, and join the worlds most elite divers like @alexeymolchanov @willtrubridge @alessia.zecchini @gorancolak @mirelakardasevic @aolin_wang @kostyshen (and many others) in training and competing and of course having fun in the waters of Ibiza. Stay tuned on molchanovagrandprix.com for news and live streams from the deep. Or just stay connected here, and Ill sum it all up for you;) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

The end of summer usually has amazing days for anything sea related. The sun is not burning as bad, the sea is still warm, the crowds are slowly melting away. Best time of the season. So make the most of it, don't start complaining how it flew by in a couple of weeks, get out and enjoy it at least for a bit. Hope that our #prirodnoja (naturallyyou) campaign inspired you to get the most of your natural self out there. We will see about how gets featured in the upcoming book. Meanwhile, apart from publishing promotional posts:), I'm enjoying the sea around Dubrovnik and making improvements in my dives every day. My new bi-fin PB is now -85 m, and it feels super easy... Can't wait for next days and new dives. Even though the dive felt easy and great, after the dive we found that the large lung edema that develops during this activity prevents the oxygen levels to resaturate and the body needs time to recover. Hopefully this study will bring a lot more detailed info on extreme freediving and help make diving better and safer. Feels cool to be a part of this story. Oh, well, look at the time, just enough left to make it to dinner table before sundown. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport

Train hard, compete easy. Or something like that. After training in the waters of Kvarner, and overcoming conditions that get there from time to time, coming over to Cavtat for research and training is like having a completely different sport on your hands. It's quite a schedule doing dives and being available for research all the time, but with the sea so calm, warm and blue... And logistic and safety team for every dive... Doing your best dives comes so easy and natural. I can't wait to see what the next days will bring, I'm just hoping the weather will be cooperative as it was so far... With good technique and gentle approach, the deeper I go, the easier it seems. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

They say when you start learning about something you get to a certain level of knowledge. Then, after actually doing it, you upgrade your level a bit more. But after teaching the skill, you get to the very peak of your learning process, and you learn the most. This is a cycle that needs to be repeated of course, but it definitely makes sense, and I'm very grateful to all freediving students that I met this year, because I had the chance to expand and learn through every single education. Hopefully, they learned a lot as well. And maybe, they got hooked so we will meet again in advanced courses and training... Who knows, maybe even competitions! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

"Hang my head, drown my fear , Till you all just disappear" Sondgarden - Black hole sun I may sound like a cranky old man, but I do think the music scene was better before. True, I don't pay enough attention to stand behind that statement, but still... A matter of subjective opinion. But, as I'm always open to now stuff, do you guys have a great new band to recommend so I listen to it? Like in the last 6-7 years new...

Is this image cool or what? Such nice tones, small fish minding their own business, rays of light dropping down, disturbing the tranquility of the sea in its majestic being... And what else is cool, the new diver watch - also on the photo, in it's own true element. Why is it cool, its actually the first Croatian diving watch, and his Kickstarter campaign is just published. --- kck.st/2OPCq7S --- Check it out, a Croatian dude had a dream of making top quality watches and he is pushing it to happen. The name of the brand is @marnautwatches and even though its just starting he has put together a cool device with sapphire crystal, 300m rated, automatic movement, different straps... Well, I'm always up for helping out projects like this one, so here is my shout!

Woooow it's been so busy with the courses I just haven't had time to post some new shots... Happy to be sharing some knowledge and passion for the deep with new enthusiasts, spear fisherman, swimmers and quite a lot of kids:) Here is a snap of @petarklovar91 getting back from -30 on his first day diving in the sea, there were a few quite impressive beginners, hopefully they will stay interested and keep improving at least through summer months... Whats always interesting to me is how many people respond so well to breath holding on dry while we learn how to breathe and relax... Perhaps the modern day life is so packed  with stress and work oriented we just don't get a chance to inhale fully and we forget the concept of truly relaxing. Well, I guess it's a bit sad, but this is why they invented freediving and breathing courses:) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Posting @alexeymolchanov super cool photo to congratulate him on his amazing new record of -130 m in constant weight. I know he will go even deeper in the future, but this round numbers are kind of ice breakers and motivators for others... At these depths every meter is so far away. Good job Alexey as always! For me, this and Alexey winning bronze in CMAS 16x50 is one of the highlights of the season definitely. But, not to forget, it is Vertical Blue time, and limits are being pushed every day... And with this said, we can't forget the amazing @alessia.zecchini who is making history in the pool and the sea at the same time!!! GRANDE. And, of course, always with a smile. Right behind her super powerful @alenkaartnik - these two girls will be a part of some new Big Blue movie one day....

A shot from the deep to our new freedivers... I'm not sure what makes you more tired, having to dive with all the guys in the course or do your own training. There is def something nice about sharing things and learning people new skills, so it gives you some energy back, sometimes even more you put out... Just to remind all potential candidates for workshops and courses, there are open spots for July and August so if you're interested, DM me with details and I'll put you in the list and let you know about what dates are available... Have a great summer;) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #marnaut #angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

After being surrounded by pool walls, being back in the sea gives me such feeling of freedom. Endless blue all around... Not quite back in training, having a rest is also important, but full on with freediving courses sharing passion for the sport and the sea. First stop is @b24_divingcenter in Komiža, amazing center founded by Veljano Zanki, a world class freediver.

One story is behind us, another one begins. Heading to AIDA world championship with @petarklovar91 doing his first 200m DNF in big pool in training for this WC. His safety here @d_custic and me behind the camera in one of our last sessions in the pool this year. Hopefully we bring home more nice experience this time with AIDA Croatia national team. Stay tuned for news from the blue;) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #xpncroatia#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

I need to relax a bit, and when I do, I think of surf. The sweet salty feeling of the surf. You know, when waves pierce under your eye lids, and you get sand between you teeth because you've hit the bottom with your face. And salty water keeps dripping down your nose for hours. Like with all great things, you need to try it to understand it. And then, its too late... I'm not much of a God person, but God bless surfing. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #NZMustDo#RealMiddleEarth #kiwi_photos#newzealandguide #visitauckland#discover_newzealand #destinationnz#newzealandvacations #kiwipics#kiwiexperience#gonz #surfing#surf#ocean#salty#beach#muriwai#piha#westcoastauckland#auckland#oceanlife #oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives#surfphotografhy#surfporn @purenewzealand @newzealandguide@newzealandvacations @destinationnz#bestvacations#traveldeeper#prirodnoja

Happy birthday to this special fish that's all the way in Madagascar, passing on surveying skills to other volunteer survey divers and helping them memorize more individual fish species than you'd ever thought you'd be capable of. Thank you for sharing your love of life and the ocean! ✨ #kickasswomeninscience

One week before the tournament still trying to find a ray of sunshine to get me off the ground. But then again, Monday was never a good day for anything. So I'm skipping today and looking forward to tomorrow. Today I'm just gonna walk around and maybe look into myself for some clues occasionally. You guys have a great Monday and the rest of the week! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Well well well... If it isn't 40k just around the corner:) Here's another throwback to make the anniversary. I noticed these quicksilver shots really get your attention. They get mine too, I could stay all day looking at it change shape... Only I can't. I need to get some air eventually. And if you were wondering how to stay there longer and admire the color play of the ocean, join my online group and learn some new skills in relaxing, stress control, breathing, focusing and with that - holding your breath. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

It's present in every sport, the high mental demand at top level performance. And the tricks your mind plays on you in freediving are amazing. I guess this makes it more challenging and intriguing, and in the end, gives you back more satisfaction. I'm all up for thorny roads to satisfaction, but right now, I could use a day with a few tricks less... Every day is a new chance I guess. Better luck next time. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

It's blasphemy to spend a sunny weekend like this one indoor, and even more - underwater. I guess there are easier and harder days:/ Don't be sinners like me:( There is still time to get out there and get some sun on you! In fact... Maybe I'll catch my breath a bit and get out as well. Better than being in a well. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

A shot of @alexeymolchanov diving down to the endless blue. During this phase of FIM discipline, its all about relaxing and letting go. Something for the end of the week right? But anyways, I really like UW freediving photos, and I can never decide if I like the spacey pool environment or the open ocean more. What do you like more? The Ocean is magic on its own, but the pool shots are like from a different world sometimes... I just don't know. I like them both. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

There is time for work and time to relax. This is something in between. Forceful relaxing for the sake of the photo:) I have this trouble a lot, finding the balance between the two.

Woohoo! Checking out my numbers I realized I'm close to 40k, and I thought to myself I can't wait to to hit 40 and publish something like woohoo I've hit 40, check this and that... And then I thought, why should 40 be any more special then 39:) So I decided to take this 39 count and feel special about it. Of course, this is all because of you guys following, liking and commenting, and this all brings attention and new people and hopefully something good will rise from it all. Thank you for this. Your being here and feedback through comments means a lot. Ok, for this important number I've decided to repost a photo you liked, commented and then I hope enjoyed the most during the last year I'm active. It's a simple photo I took on the surface of the ocean while @lidija_lijic_ posing, but it is kind of nice and represents some peace and connection freedivers feel while being in the sea... Well, the weekend is around the corner, make it a good one and I hope I contributed a small bit to that with this pic. I'm eager to see if your response will be as good as the last time I've put it up, was it because the photo is good or some other circumstances made this the photo with most likes so far. What do you think is crucial for a photo to be noticed? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Just got a photo from the Maribor competition, Matej Bergoc managed to capture a few shots of me passing by. I like the ones where you can see the safety divers and kind of get the atmosphere of the competition. Although a photo is so much different than what I experience at this moment:) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

This photo seems kind of free to me. All that space, all that blue, all that possibilities around her gazing the horizon and all the Ocean between. And I aimed for the focus of the viewer to be directed at the person, quite intentionally that person being the freediver @lidija_lijic_ and presenting freediving itself. There is a saying that scuba divers dive to look around them, while freedivers dive to look inside them. In all that space of blue water, while freediving, you get a chance to focus on yourself. That's why its so inviting and addictive. And after this intro, its time to advertise a bit:) Those interested in freediving courses and workshops, do DM me and ask around. This is something natural and easy to learn for anybody, and it's an experience that will influence other spheres of your life and work. It's actually exploring yourself. Custom lessons are available, and soon I'll publish a few fixed dates as well. Need to keep busy during the Summer, and its quite nice working in the sea:) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Maribor competition is over, another win for me:) Great hospitality from the Slovenians and a nice event to be a part of. This was the last one before the world champs, hopefully the 4 competitions this season will be enough experience to make a good performance at the world champs this year in Italy. Now a bit of time to relax, and when I think of relaxing I remember surfing, so this is a share from my surf collection (if you like it, there is a gallery on my FB page Vitomir Maricic). Hope you will find your relaxing trigger for today and spend a nice, sunny, easy and relaxed Sunday! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #exploretocreate#bnwmood#bnw_life #lightandshadow #NZMustDo#RealMiddleEarth #kiwi_photos#newzealandguide #visitauckland#discover_newzealand #destinationnz#newzealandvacations #kiwipics#kiwiexperience#gonz #surfing#surf#ocean#salty#muriwai#piha#westcoastauckland#auckland#oceanlife #oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives#surfphotografhy#surfporn @purenewzealand @newzealandguide @newzealandvacations @destinationnz

Sunny weekend ahead and instead of sleeping and being outdoor I'm rushing to the Slovenian nationals. This will be a fun competition and first try of my new suit, at the same time the last game before the WC in Italy... Hope you have your weekend planned out, and what ever it is, I wish you a good one! If you don't know what to do - go practice those bubble rings:) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Ok guys. As promised to some of you through inbox or comments, I'll try to give you a tutorial on the air rings I enjoy doing... So I found an old video where its kind of visible how I place my tongue between my lips before letting some air go. Sometimes I do this without the tongue, sometimes with lips turned inward, but I think the best way is the one in the video. While doing it, focus on a few important details:  1. your lips should be level with the surface, you blow the rings directly at surface. tilting your head a bit will drastically impact your ring form.  2. make your tongue as round as possible  3. make your lips as round and relaxed as possible around your tongue  4. release only the air in your mouth or cheeks, do not blow from the lungs  5.  use small amounts of air, specially if you're deep 6. when you release the bubble, pull the tongue inside, imagine the tongue rolls the air to form a better ring 7. try to rotate the lips inward when you pop the bubble out, this actually helps 8. remember to keep the lips round before, during and after the ring, it helps . Ok, I think this is all I can think of. It's just practice after this. I you have any questions - shoot. Hope you will make nice rings and have a lot of fun:) Send a video or tag me when you make it! Make it your new summer skill...! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater #tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #ring#freedivingphotography #deeperblue#uwphotography #uwshots#deepbluesea#underwaterphotography #oceanlife#oceanfun#oceanfacts #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #gopro#TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport #prirodnoja

Lucky to spot around 100 short finned pilot whales (with calves) out on this morning's cetacean survey around Atauro. Alongside these, 5 other species of cetaceans were also spotted, and all in great numbers!

So! Check this out. A brief second and a half from my training (ok, just a show of jump for the sake of the video) spread out thanks to the #960fps #Superslowmotion on the new Sony #XperiaXZ2 - Oh yes baby, the "in your face" hash promotion means I've got another client. But, to be honest, this really is a cool shot don't you think? And you can film this only with a simple cell phone. The phone is pretty awesome with all the cool features you would expect inside a flagship phone, like #4KHDR and #hirezaudio, but if you happen to be in Croatia, and are interesting in getting this thingy, it's your lucky day - @vipme.hr webshop is giving away a 400 EUR worth headset  free with the phone! BTW, I tested the headset, amazing. Hope you like the clip, I'm really happy with how this super slow motion makes things feels strange and magic, specially the part with water dripping down from me like rain while I jump inside. I actually also like my @molchanovsfreediving gold suit when reflecting on the sunlight like this, looks much better than in the shade. Well, that's that for now, enjoy the weekend, grab some sun if you can! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfreedivegear#apneaaddicts#underwater#tanksbutnotanks#angelsofthesea#freedive #molchanovs#freedivingphotography #deeperblue #oceanfun #oceanperspectives #differentperspectives#oceanimagery #freedivingart#MadeOfOcean#freediverlife #prirodnoja #TurningTheTide#saltnomads #discoverocean #RoamTheOceans #bluuespace #divingpassport
