Cliff diving is an extreme sport that involves diving from great heights into bodies of water. It requires strength, courage, skill and technique, as well as a good knowledge of the risks involved. The challenge of cliff diving lies in the height of the cliff and the currents and waves present in the landing area. Cliff diving is a thrill-seeking activity where athletes take the plunge from places ranging from 40 to 90 feet or even higher in some cases. Cliff dives provide spectacular visuals for onlookers and are increasingly popular in both competitive and recreational forms.
