No;in no way. Being dragged into the deepness using weights is a special discipline within the apnea sport for a few extreme divers. There are only a few that dive this way and the most extreme among them are sponsored by the “bullish soda industry”… which again attracts the media.
At Freediving El Hierro we always dive in such a way that we float on the surface by ourselves – without having to do anything – even with a weight-belt. The only reason for the weight-belt is to balance the uplift of the wetsuit. If we would only wear the diving suit, without a little weight, it would be impossible to dive underwater.
