DIVING WITH GUILLAUME NERY IN FRENCH POLYNESIA
Thanks to his passion, strength and confidence in his own abilities, Néry dives to depths that few people would be able to reach without using professional equipment. The natural landscapes that he sees seem more like surreal worlds. In 2014, prompted by a passion for deep diving, the Polynesians saw the depths of Rangiroa in a new way - it is where Néry shot the film Ocean Gravity, in which he seems to be running in zero gravity.
The Frenchman's days are punctuated by rigorous and intense training, with constant practice in breath-holding and swimming as well as crossfit, paddling and running. If he should decide to return to competing professionally, his physical preparation needs to remain at the highest levels. Néry's lifestyle is a continuous challenge for his body, with the natural elements that surround him. For him, practising free-diving goes beyond a normal sporting discipline.
“The freefall is amazing because you’re just free – you’re flying in the water.” - Guillaume Néry
GUILLAUME NÉRY AND PANERAI

Néry, proud to be an ambassador for the Italian brand, says: “It represents my world. It has a strong relationship with the sea and my quest is discovering the sea, so I’m very proud to be part of this team.”
