Freediving for Abalone

Ever try diving for abalone?  Looks like a lot of work and it seems to be pretty dangerous. There are far too many newspaper reports of the deaths of people diving for abalone off the Sonoma Coast.

I always wondered what it was like to go diving for abalone and now I have a better idea thanks to this 1 minute YouTube video that runs about 7 1/2 minutes.  Ever notice that there are lots of good 1 minute YouTube videos than run about 7 minutes long?
