I am free diver, Pipin Ferreras. I am about to attempt the impossible. And I want to take you with me by filming the event and sharing with you the amazing science gleaned from this event in a documentary entitled, The Challenge of Science: 15 Years Later.

For thirty years I have explored life under the ocean, first as a boy spear fishing near my home and later exploring the limits of human capabilities to survive underwater for extended periods of time, as a free diver. My journey has given me the unique opportunity to learn how similar we are to the creatures of the ocean.

In 2014 I will attempt to break the No Limits Diving world record by diving nearly 700 feet beneath the ocean in honor of my late wife, Audrey Mestre. In preparation for my record breaking dive, scientists and medical experts will travel with me to Cabo San Lucas later this year to study my attempt to make five consecutive breath-hold dives below 100 meters in 30 minutes or less—another world record. And I will use their analysis of the data gathered during this 3 week scientific and training expedition to design the training program for my final No Limits record breaking dive next year.

I am excited to share with you the profound beauty and groundbreaking science I have discovered below the surface. Please join me and help to make this film possible by making a contribution to my campaign.

Gratefully yours,
Pipin Ferreras
