Nothing brings you back to the present more so than some ice cold water and a little frostbite.
If the cameras freeze, they will stop working.
It’s been a while since I released a film or at least one I created purely for the sake of creating. Life can be often too distracting. Nothing brings you back to the present more so than some ice cold water and a little frostbite.
The goal of this short piece was to explain the simplicity of a breath-hold and the deeper thoughts in the mind when pushing your body to such limits.
I just wanted to first off thank Geoff Combs and Andrew Ryzebol our fearless Canadian Ice guides. Thank you for dealing with us and keeping everyone safe under the ice.
