Apart from the mask, depending on the discipline and weather conditions, dedicated wetsuits, weight and specialised fins are used. Sports freediving disciplines are divided into pool and depth disciplines, which are held in open water. The deepest dive without division into competitions is 207 m by Herbert Nitsch in 2007.
