This year PFI is taking Deja Blue IV on the road! For the first time we will be running the famous competition in Curacao.
This is the perfect location for novice as well as World Class Freedivers from all over to show the world what their Freediving Potential is. Not only will Freedivers be able to test themselves in all self-powered depth disciplines but the pool disciplines (static, dynamic and dynamic no-fins) will be held in a 50m pool!
Game on! Sat October 5 is the first day of Deja Blue IV. For almost real time updates please Like us on FaceBook (www.facebook.com/PerformanceFreediving) and follow us on Twitter (PerformanceFI) with #dejablue. This website will be updated at the end of each day with official results, videos and pictures.
This is an AIDA sanctioned competition and National and World Records can be validated (doping tests costs are to be covered by the athlete). Deja Blue is unique in that it allows each athlete to choose what discipline they wish to do each day. You can stick to one the whole way through (maybe you want a record) or compete in each discipline (this is how you win the overall competition).
The competition will kick off on the evening of Oct 4 with the opening ceremonies. The event wrap-up will include the announcement of the winners. The top 3 men and top 3 women will be awarded with prizes and medals. This year we have over $5600 worth of prizes thanks to the following prize sponsors: GoPro, C4, Yamamoto/Oceaner, Suunto, Moana Waterman. The award ceremony will be followed by a party to celebrate all of the personal best, national and world records that fell!
This competition will have almost live updates on Twitter, Facebook and email with daily results being posted at the end of each day once performances are ratified by the AIDA judges. Press releases will be sent out before during and after the competition and once again Goh Iromoto and his video team will be creating competition videos daily! Videos will be posted on VIMEO and YouTube as well as Performance Freediving’s website.
