Recent­ly, unfor­tu­nate­ly, there have been more and more sto­ries in the news about how many young peo­ple injure them­selves when jump­ing into the water from cliffs. How­ev­er, the caus­es of such inci­dents are not often dis­cussed. It often hap­pens that jumps are made by peo­ple in a state of intox­i­ca­tion, as well as in unknown places. In fact, rock jump­ing has a long tra­di­tion that dates back to the time of the ancient tribes that lived on the East­er Islands or Hawaii, who used such jumps as all sorts of rit­u­als. Instead of con­demn­ing, it is bet­ter to try at least once to make such a jump, but instruct­ed by a pro­fes­sion­al and in a care­ful­ly checked ter­ri­to­ry. If you decide, you will dis­cov­er new, unex­plored impres­sions of your capa­bil­i­ties.

Negril, Jamaica

The main occu­pa­tion of this island is con­sid­ered to be rock jump­ing from heights from 12 to 21 meters. This is one of the most pop­u­lar spots among cliff divers. How­ev­er, the beau­ty of the rocks is direct­ly pro­por­tion­al to their insid­i­ous­ness. these rocks are for expe­ri­enced cliff divers only.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

In this city, on the coast of the Adri­at­ic Sea, the world-class Cliff div­ing tour­na­ment has already tak­en place twice. The first time the tour­na­ment was in 2000, and the sec­ond — in 2009. The city of Dubrovnik is one of the favorite places for divers.

Lake Verbano, Italy

Lake Ver­bano was the site of the most spec­tac­u­lar rock dives in 1998. Found­ing mem­ber of the WHDF, Fred­er­ick Weil, made a deep jump from a height of 26 meters (from the heli­copter steps), while doing a dou­ble som­er­sault from a hand­stand. This jump was list­ed in the Guin­ness Book of Records.

Polignano Mare, Italy

Polig­nano Mare in Italy is not only a beau­ti­ful name, but also a rock div­ing are­na. In 2010, the Red Bull Cliff Div­ing World Series was held here, fol­lowed by 40,000 spec­ta­tors. divers start­ed from a height of 26 meters.

Big Island, Hawaii

Hawaii is the birth­place of rock div­ing. Of course, it is dif­fi­cult to trace when the very first jump was made. But writ­ten con­fir­ma­tion of the jumps of 1770 reached us. The div­er entered the water from a height of 19 meters and did not cause a splash.
