Using Dry Snorkel Freediving
The use of dry snorkel while freediving can cause flex tube snorkel become depressed / Penyet. This is normal, you do not need to panic. This is because the dry snorkel has a splash snorkel strong enough to resist the entry of water into the tube until the snorkel tube is still a little dry and filled the air (do not even think to use this air to breathe). The Fund closed its deep 4.5 to 6 meters and hit the outside pressure is greater than the volume of air in the tube resulted in the fund will be narrowed to flex tube will Penyet / depressed.
