All about the Human Sub

Séb is no ordinary diver. He has been practising freediving as a sport for many years and has developed his own style in that time.

Séb is ready to break the world record.  

Sébastien Murat has in the past few years acquired an outstanding reputation as a deep diving desperado. Today he is taking his skills one step further in an attempt to bring his sport and the fantastic experiences associated with it to an even wider public.

The Swiss from Neuchatel has never understood the concept of ‘limits’. Séb revolutionised the world of freediving when he copied the technique of diving with empty lungs from marine mammals. Even international TV stations ran reports about this revolutionary approach.

Séb studied physiology at the University of Adelaide and now passes on his knowledge as a professional SCUBA diving instructor to his students.
