A historical mass plunge, branded as Neyvaa took place on 1st October 2019 as part of World Tourism Day celebrations in the Maldives where 521 divers demolished a previous record and secured a spot in the Guinness World Records book for the greatest number of people freediving simultaneously. The event was graced by the president of the Maldives and renowned freedivers such as world-record-holding free diver for Constant Weight No-Fins (CNF) William Trubridge, the former female Australian national record holder Alana Caskey and Singaporean national record holder Jonathan Chong.
To celebrate the Golden Jubilee of tourism in the Maldives with grandeur, Neyvaa will return to set a new world record in 2022 – this time to set a new world record as ‘most people performing static apnea simultaneously’. This record is to be set in one of the many forms of freediving; static apnea. Static apnea is a discipline in which a person holds their breath underwater for as long as possible while floating on the surface of the water.
This multi-location event is targeted at ocean enthusiasts in resorts including guests and resort staff. An adequate training program will be held in all participating resorts, including static apnea training, safety diver training, and trainer training to prepare participants for the event.
Neyvaa 2 will be live-streamed to a wider audience through social media platforms and television channels on the day of the event. A documentary chronicling this momentous event is to be released on Netflix/Amazon Prime and YouTube.
