Red Bull Cliff Diving

Alessandro De Rose


Free-falling from up to 27m combined with awe-inducing acrobatics – that’s the essence of cliff diving. Since 2009 the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has provided a platform for aesthetic action and dives of incredible complexity. It’s pure. It’s breath-taking and it’s packed full of exciting drama.
