The Man Dolphin

Some of you might know him from school as the guy who fanatically listened to bands such as Korn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, etc and the dive crowd might know his as that free diving guy with the weird conjoined fins who came to the clean ups we had.

Several years ago Monde’ (Mohamed Hamza) came up with the thought that he wanted to take up free diving as a sport. We didn’t take him much seriously back then but today it’s a reality. He is off to Egypt to undergo training with some of the best free divers out there and in a few months time to take part in an international free dive competition. As far as I’ve heard of he is the first Maldivian to take part in such a competition.

Free diving with its disciplines is one of the most extreme sports out there. And it takes dedication and years of practice to be able to enter into such a competition.

Good luck to you Monde’ and may you kick some ass!
