2016 Vanapneist Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest

Sun 30 October 2016

Today the Vancouver Apneist Freediving Club had what may be the ninth annual underwater pumpkin carving contest. Jaime and Luca were my fellow carvers and Olli took my camera to take a few photos.

The term 'contest' is probably a bit of a mis-nomer. We didn't declare a winner. However, Luca had the biggest pumpkin, used the biggest, scariest knife and carved his pumpkin at the deepest depth. (almost 9m) It was fun to watch when the rest of us had finished our carvings several minutes beforehand.

I have a YouTube of Luca making the final cuts on his pumpkin:
