My name is Calros Zhu, I’m an AIDA Freediving Instructor fluent in both Chinese and English. I was born in Hangzhou China, and immigrated to Vancouver Canada at young age. Inspired by the beauty of both cities with their landscape, I started working as an environment artist for video games, then developed a career in Real Estate and Finance. Even though my career changed, but the artist in me never left. Years later as I travelled around the world I started explore the underwater beauty with scuba diving.
During one of my trips in 2019 I was introduced to freediving in Panglao, Philippines. I saw how people can dive into the ocean with one single breath and explore the beautiful reef, swim with colorful tropical fish, or the biggest fish like a whale shark. I was then instantly hooked to the sport, I continued educate myself about freediving in Vancouver local waters, as well in the beautiful cenotes of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
