Video of William Trubridge's world record freedive attempt on December 3, 2014.

Fresh footage has been released showing New Zealand freediver William Trubridge during his dramatic failed attempt to set a new record for the deepest unassisted free-dive.

Trubridge made it to his target of 102 metres in the Bahamas on Wednesday morning (NZ time), but had to pull out just 20m from the surface on the return journey.

Speaking after his failed attempt, a disappointed Trubridge admitted he'd blacked out within metres of reaching the surface.

The Kiwi already boasts the world record for the deepest unassisted free-dive after reaching 101m at the same spot in the Caribbean back in 2010.
