That guy should video under the ash… Ps chive crew come to Waikiki!!
Im down for a Hawaii Meet Up
First thing i would have done was gotten rid of that snorkel! Can you imagine?
That is one brave mother fkr. That's some scary shit!
Is hard to take much info on it because the noise of the wind, but for the way they spoke on the video, this was shot in Argentina. In fact, at a moment, the camera guy said: don´t get in if it is quicksand
Nope, he said " It looks like quick sand "
Actually, he said "That IS quicksand".
By the looks of it, this was shot in Nahuel Huapi lake, In the Border between Río Negro and Neuquén, in Argentina. This is how it looked after the Puyehue volcano in Chile blew a shitton of ash into the air, and it came pouring down onto everything
ACTUALLY he said "It looks like Bisquick"
i think maybe they were just trying to get some delicious baking ingredients for the home. Everyone knows Argentina loves cookies. C'mon now guys.
How the hell did this happen?
Gonna go out on a limb and say this is what the ocean surface looks like after a volcano erupts.
yep, thats exactly what happened. This is in Argentina! A Voclano erupted in Chile and the wind carry all the ashes kilometers away. A lot of Patagonia surface was covered in ashes
It's a cool looking phenomenon, but I don't see what makes the contents of the lake under the surface any more frightening. Just because it's a regular lake with ash on top doesn't mean there's a dinosaur underneath. Or does it….?
There's nothing frightening in the Nahuel Huapi lake. That is, of course, if you don't listen to the legends that claim there's a goddamn dinosaur called "Nahuelito" living in the depths of the lake, which, by the way, is over 500 meters deep.
It's crazy to see how thick the ashes are… he's throwing it around and still not hitting water.
If memory serves right, there was around 1 meter of ash on the lake's surface, all over the lake, which is a big one. So, yeah, über-crazy
This seems similar to when Chuck Norris swims in land.
This is where chinchillas bathe.
this is frome argentina and the Ashes come Frome chile volcano
Surely he wouldn't be seeing much under the surface would he? It looks as though there are at least a couple feet of ash built up. I'd like to see a video transitioning between out of water to beneath that muck.
It would be cool to see, I would expect it to be pitch black though.
That's what I was thinking. Bring lots of dive lights.
you kinda makes it sound like it would be clear blue water underneath
I doubt it would be clear at all… Just curious since that much sediment seems to be floating on top and some volcanic material is buoyant, it may not be as murky.
Actually it was pretty much clear water underneath. the ash cumulated on the surface, turning into a floating paste, so not much of it really sank in the lake. But, as "myself" said, it'd be pitch black
yall niggaz be gettin in the lake after i be ashin my blunt. dayum.
What about us honkeys? Can we be gettin in the dayum lake after you be ashin your blunt, too? It looks like it may be fun for everyone.
I prefer the term "cracka."
Can the Azn's come too? Then it will be a good party with a theme song that goes "black and yellow, black and yellow"
why the hell would take a snorkel diving in that shit?
Why even go in there at all?
This is what happens when James Franco smokes unattended.
I've been diving for 24 years and this guy looks like a complete amateur. First, you ALWAYS have a dive buddy. He should not have gone under by himself. Second, that layer of ash looks pretty thick so it's going to block out all the sunlight and it's going to be dark below the surface. I didn't see a dive light attached to his BC. Third, his regulator should have been in his mouth as soon as he started to wade into the water. He can't see the bottom and therefor is uncertain of his footing so if he slips/trips and goes down at least he would have an air supply. Plus he's dragging it in the ash so it's getting clogged before he even puts it in his mouth. You can see him trying to shake it out at 0:55. This is a perfect example of why diving accidents happen.
at least hes filming it for our entertainment! lol
this is from at least a year ago (although I thought older than that….)
I agree. I've been diving for a long time as well and I couldn't help shaking my head the entire video. This has disaster written all over it.
I've never gone snorkeling, but if i was going to snorkel in that stuff i would have had the regulator and goggles ready to go and on before i got in. Its just a little common sense, but i dont know wtf this guy was thinking.
when i travelled down there for many months, it was easy to see the way they think down there, from either education quality and/or length, that this guy could have easily been chilean/agentinian. lack of forethought will keep that country in the dark ages for sometime yet, nice place, nice ppl mind u, i felt safer here than in usa
I am from Argentina, and, just like you guys over there, we got our fair share of morons that drown for not taking precautions. Nothing to do with education, or upbringing, just plain ol' stupid. And we're not in the dark ages, thank you very much
Could have been worse. He could have been carrying a piano.
I've never dived before except at the local swimming pool to get a badge in boy scouts 20+ years ago. But my common sense had me thinking the same thing.. no light, regulator not in his mouth and he's stumbling around almost falling over.. I kept thinking this would end like the cinnamon challenge.
Thats Nahuel Huapi lake, in Bariloche, south of Argentina.The volcano erupted ash for 6 month.
that WAS a good regulator, now its crap
love the S.O.S. signal in the background…
I think i just watched a snuff film
"Artax! Fight against the sadness! You're letting the sadness swamp get to you!"… no? anyone? no one here went straight to the Never Ending Story?
Thought it was atreyu
Umm isn't it atreyu?
Atreyu was the kid. Artax was his horse, which was sinking in the mud because he despaired
Oooh…I didn't put you brought me there. I loooved that movie when I was little.
did he die?
where is this lake. I'm totally going
No you're not.
You can go whenever you want. Ash free by now, though. So no ashes for you
I bet that regulator tasted fantastic when he put it in his mouth….
did he died?
Lake Nahuel Huapi, in Bariloche, Argentina next year, when Puyehue volcan cover everything with ashes. I saw this on tv, he was searching the water pipes or something. I live 1500 kms or more far from there, and my car, house and other stuff got little ashes during a month or more.
Thank you! I was wondering what he was serching for.
