Diving and divers

It is safe to say that diving has become one of the most popular types of sports entertainment in recent years. And in terms of development dynamics it can only be compared with paintball. It would seem that a couple of years ago, units were swimming under water, and today we can already talk about the phenomenon of diving – with such a powerful wave it burst into our lives. More and more people are joining the romantic army of divers, and there is nothing surprising in this, because the world of diving is so rich and diverse!

Beautifully built, tanned young people against the background of blue waves and the ocean breeze turned this sport into something inaccessible, beyond the control of a simple person.

The search for himself in sports affected both martial arts and skateboarding, but everything was changed by one simple trip to his grandmother. Continue reading

Biography
