The Highs and Lows of Pure Cliff Diving

Kris Kolanus and Gary Hunt
Divers discuss the challenging yet cherished art of leaping from bare rocks

Cliff diving doesn't come any more pure than leaping from bare rocks into the ocean, and the second stop of the 2017 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in the Azores provided the athletes with a chance to experience a return to the roots of the sport. Leaping directly from the cliffs is not something they get to experience too often, at least not in a competitive setting, and it's a challenge that they love to take on. 

Watch the clip above as the divers explain the thrills and challenges of pure cliff diving.
