Meet Johanna Nordblad. She is a Finnish freediver, but not your typical freediver — she’s an ice freediver. And Norblad holds the world record for a 164-foot (50-meter) under ice dive.
In this short biopic about Norblad by British director and photographer Ian Derry for Nowness, Norblad talks about how she came across the sport after a horrific bike accident and tried cold water treatment to make sure she didn’t lose her fractured leg.
Norblad has clearly found her calling, as we watch her go fully into her element once she descends under the ice. It appears to be a different world under there where Norblad is queen. As a cold water surfer myself, this is a whole different level I cannot even begin to fathom.
