Ai Futaki 二木 あい
Ai Futaki
My life with the water began when I was three. 
After studying film and documentaries in California and Cuba, 
I discovered scuba diving. In 2007, 
finally introduced to apnea free-diving. 
At last final piece of the puzzle fell in place!



I am part of the water…, be ONE with the water. 
By using breath-hold diving as a tool to become the bridge 
between the underwater world and the human world.
 I share the harmony, beauty and symbiosis with the water.
