Wes Lapp finds peace in freediving

Hood River man, former record holder, continues pursuit of exotic sport

Wes Lapp got hooked on freediving about 10 years ago, when he and his wife, Nancy Napp, took a six-week trip to Micronesia with the objective of conceiving their first child. The trip was a success; somewhere between Guam and Pohnpei their daughter, Zan, was in utero, and the two returned home to Hood River to start their new family.
