October 17th, 2013

OK, so the weather here in the UK is positively drizzly and typically Autumnal, but head East over the Atlantic, where the skies are blue and the heat is on to celebrate the Orlando Extreme Water Sports Fest. Lake Ivanhoe is the venue for this year’s day-long series of extreme water sport competitions which include wakeboarding and water skiing.

Mostly of American and Canadian origin, the contestants almost defy gravity with their agility, determination and fearless control of the boards and skiis. With a cash prize for the winners, competition to take the winning trophies is ferocious. Here, at Ansells, we watch the weather with envy and the contestants with interest!

New Bunjee Jump Record goes to Aussie

October 8th, 2013

Australian, Jay Phoenix has leaped into the record books by doing more bungee jumps than anyone else in the space of 24 hours. He only needed to jump more than 106 times to claim the record, but in the end he managed an impressive 150 jumps in 21 hours.

A thick elastic cord was tied to his ankles as he jumped from a 40m-high (130ft) platform on a crane near Brisbane, in Queensland. The previous record holder was South African Kevin Scott Huntly, who jumped 105 times in 2011.

It is believed bungee jumping was invented by thrill-seeking students in the UK in the late 1970s. As well as buildings, cranes and bridges, enthusiasts have also jumped from hot air balloons and helicopters.

Fancy jumping to such depths? If the answer’s a “yes”, then make sure you have the right insurance and call 0800 1313 417 or view the full list of activities we cover.
