Richard & the Downbelow team had a great day showing the awesome film crew from Sky 1 Japan, Go Hayakata,Yuka Yuka Matsubara, Masayuki Kuritani, Mari Hatano, Natsu Mori and Gold medalist Freediving champion Hanako Hirose around the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Borneo.

At the request of Sabah Tourism, Downbelow were excited to host the group for the day & do our best to show the highlights of the area for their upcoming film promoting Sabah’s underwater wonders.

Needless to say we look forward to seeing the footage on air :)

It was a beautiful day & TARP didn’t disappoint delivering stunning corals, Turtle, Matting Squid, schooling Barracuda & the list goes on.

Downbelow Managing Director and resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann, who is an underwater photographer himself even had the privilege to join in and captured a few nice images to pass to the crew.

We wish to thank our new friends from Japan for spending a fantastic day with us & we hope to welcome you back to “the land below the wind” soon.

Best of wishes Hanako with your next record attempt from all the team at Downbelow.
