Your vision will be worce so look ahead becomes harder. Water is heavier than air so physically just turning your cube takes longer and is more effort (which will effect how long you can hold your breath).

Positioning of yourself and cubes is also something you will need to work on. I suggest a weight belt or vest to sink you and some sort of shelf/ ledge that your cubes can float underneath. An upsidedown bucket or container that you somehow tie down might work.

Good luck

i think he has a very good chance. underwater is not going to be much different. he held his breathe more than a minute more than kevin. the only thing that might hold him back is solving speed, but 50% more solve time is a lot.

I think David Blaine has a shot at the record, he held the WR for breath holding at 17:04, I think if he just became decently fast at cube solving he could do it, Bob Burton taught him how to solve a cube I believe.
probably, but that's with pure oxygen, without it he could probably still do 8-9 minutes, so yeah he has a good shot.
