An Indonesian hunter swims to a depth of 65 feet, and stays there for just under five minutes. Armed with nothing more than a pair of goggles and a spear gun, staying underwater as long as it takes to catch what he needs. Watch the video…
Sulbin is a Bajau fisher, a sea gypsies live in Malaysia and Indonesia, spending their entire life out at sea. Bajau are born at sea, will live at sea, and will die at sea.
So much of their time is spent in the water, they often feel landsick when they are on dry land.
They live on houseboats or in stilt houses off the shores.
These divers because of the pressure from diving, will intentionally rupture their eardrums at an early age – which essentially makes them partially deaf, a high price to pay for ensuring a good catch. The deep dives even change their eye muscles increasing their underwater eyesight.
