    Native Wooden Goggles


    Today these wooden goggles are still being used by indigenous ethnic groups in and around the pacific. These divers hunt and gather sea creatures in up to 20m depth for their livelihood like seen in these videos. They are hereby also part of the roots for the new sport of freediving.
