  1. The opera looks spectacular, I’m sure It’ll be a great event.

    • Diving is great fun, Hanne. But from the height of 37 meter it is a science 🙂
      It is similar shooting long distance with a rifle. How strong is the wind etc….

      Cliff diving from any height can’t be called safe — it’s one of the most dangerous extreme sports. In fact, official tourism sites of popular cliff diving destinations don’t promote the activity.
      Cliff diving puts tremendous stresses on your body. If you jump from 20 feet (6 meters) above the water, you’ll hit the water at 25 mph (40 kph) — the impact is strong enough to compress your spine, break bones or give you a concussion [source: Glen Canyon Natural History Association]. But that’s only if you enter feet-first in a straight, vertical line — a horizontal, or “pancake,” landing is like hitting concrete. Halving the height of the jump to 10 feet (3 meters), as mentioned earlier, reduces your speed of impact to 17 mph (27 kph), and even cars sustain damage when hit at that speed.

  2. Ja, jeg har nogle billeder, men jeg need to edit them before showing them, og nu, jeg har ikke mange tid til det :/

  3. I’ll give that a miss. Not only is it a long way down, the water looks very cold.

    • Hi Alen. It may well be that there is a long way down, but there are many things to look at along the way.
      The main thing is landing in the correct way. It may give one a sweat, then it is good the water is cold 🙂
      Good to hear from you,
      Hanna
