Mandy Sumner

A New England girl born and raised in Coastal Maine, Mandy moved to the Island of O’ahu, Hawaii five years ago and is living out her diving dream in the warm Pacific waters. In her first year of freediving, she hit a personal goal of diving over 200 feet, won the 2014 Kona Paradise Freediving Competition and qualified for the 2014 US Freediving Team for the World Championships. Not a shabby start. Mandy says she finds  “a unique balance of inner peace and personal challenge with freediving and I look forward to continuing to learn, grow, and excel in this amazing sport.” When she’s not in the water training, Mandy is busy creating maps as a Geologist in O’ahu.
