You may think you invented cliff diving back in the day when you and your friends used to jump off the cliffs into the lake water below back home, but cliff diving has been around since the 1700’s. Hawaii’s King Kajekili started this trend when he used to command his men to jump off cliffs feet first without splashing in order to prove they were not only loyal to him but courageous as well.
Many people think that cliff diving is no big deal but they don’t call cliff diving an extreme sport for no reason and it’s important for you to know the cliff you are diving off of before you take the leap. After all you want to make sure you leap out far enough to miss the cliff wall entirely. I have compiled a list of the best places to try out cliff jumping.
La Quebrada Cliffs have heights of up to 136 feet over the Pacific Ocean. You have a safe depth of about 11 feet to jump in. It takes you about 3 seconds to reach the water after you have leap off the cliff, so make sure you did it properly. There are people who train to jump this cliff and will do shows every day.
