Cliff Jumping..

September 18th, 2014

This really is something for the fearless.. Cliff jumping or also known as jumping platform has taken the world by storm, from young kids jumping from wardrobes onto beds to grown men launching themselves 85 foot into quarries and expecting the unknown.

The platform is usually a simple clearing into bushes and other vegetation along the cliff or above a river, ocean, lake or quarry. the distances tend to be approximately 30 meters, (100 foot) above the water.. the main technique to cliff jumping involves not only having the guts to launch yourself into the air but the landing in a defined pencil shape, typically with hands at the side or above the head.

However bad angle of entry can cause injury e.g broken bones or re-arrangement of internal limbs,  but don’t panic we will still insure you!!

As an officially recognised competitive sport, dating back to the early 1700’s when the then-king of Maui, King Kahekili jumped from a 63-foot cliff into the water below without causing even the slightest splash. Centuries later, in 1968, the International Cliff Diving Championship was featured on the ABC network’s “Wide World of Sports” broadcast. In 1996, the World High Diving Federation took ownership of the sport and created organised cliff diving competitions that burgeoned into worldwide recognition and appeal of the activity.

Acapulco, mexico is a hot spot and is home to the La Quebreda cliff divers, a team who performs for audiences throughout the year and have been since 1934.. now this is something i would want to see!
