'Life, Magic, and Love'

The fascination of cliff diving.

“Some people don’t understand why we go up 27m and jump off, go back up there and do it again,” says Gary Hunt (UK), four-time Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series champion, expanding he goes on, “it’s fun, it’s extreme, and it’s work – but doesn’t feel like work.” Jumping off great heights with no protection other than concentration, skill, and physical control; in less than three seconds reaching speeds in excess of 85kph, and punctuated by awe-inspiring tricks – that’s cliff diving and what makes up the main attraction.

Pure Cliff Diving Sees New Faces on the Podium

Pure Cliff Diving Sees New Faces on the Podium

With three new podium finishers the 2015 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series enters a decisive phase.

Mexico’s Jonathan Paredes and Andy Jones, from the United States, cause a stir in the World Series as they dived into the top-three in the season’s purest stop on a volcanic islet in the Azores archipelago, behind the ever-dominant Gary Hunt, from England. In what was the year’s closest result from almost three times the Olympic height, the athletes returned to the sport’s roots and leapt directly off the cliff to hit the water three seconds later with their bare feet at speeds of 85kph. On July 18, a passionate Portuguese crowd witnessed a wildcard winner in the second of three Women’s World Series competitions of 2015, as American Cesilie Carlton finished just ahead of Mexico's Adriana Jimenez and the USA's Ginger Huber.

Cliff Diving at its Most Pure

Cliff Diving at its Most Pure

The Azores archipelago serves as a pure and unspoilt venue for the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2015 on July 18.

The crater walls of an almost perfectly round islet in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is the natural playground for the cliff diving elite during the fifth stop of the World Series. From spots called ‘snakehead’ and ‘kitchen’ these brave athletes dive directly off the cliff to hit the water at speeds of more than 85kph only three seconds later. The volcanic archipelago almost 1,400km west of the Portuguese mainland has been an integral part of this prestigious series of competitions for the last three years, and hosts the eight athletes of the Women’s World Series for the first time ever this weekend. The season’s four-time winner and reigning champion, Gary Hunt, has unfinished business on the circular-shaped Islet of Vila Franca do Campo after he’s missed out on the final in the previous visit. Saturday at 10am is his chance to settle that score!

Divers Spread their Wings to Dive Straight from the Cliff

Divers Spread their Wings to Dive Straight from the Cliff

A pure and unspoilt venue for 22 athletes at the 2015 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series stop in the Azores, Portugal, on July 18.

Four stops, four victories – that’s Gary Hunt’s immaculate record at the midway point of the 2015 World Series season. The ‘Brilliant Brit’ has constantly increased the level of cliff diving complexity and difficulty, reaching new heights. With the next stop in the Azores archipelago, however, the sport not only returns to its purest form with 27m dives directly of the cliff face, but also to the location where the 31-year-old missed out on the final in the previous visit. Could difficult circumstances for the success-spoiled Hunt open the door for his competitors? Colombia’s Orlando Duque, his closest rival, or fellow Brit Blake Aldridge, the owner of the world’s hardest dive, are more than ready to hit the podium’s top spot. America’s Steven LoBue secured the trophy in 2014 – will 2015 see a new winner’s face? Definitely new will be the winner of the women’s competition, as the unique volcanic archipelago is the venue for the ladies for the first time. Can reigning champion Rachelle Simpson prolong her winning streak?
