The World’s Highest Jump Into Water
At the National Diving & Activity Center in Chepstow, United Kingdom, on June 8, 2015, Raymond Woodcock (UK) leapt from a crane to set the record for the highest bungee jump dive into water at 141.73 m (464 ft 11.91 in). Raymond about 26 metres bettered his own previous mark (85 ft 3.62 in).
When you think about the highest jump into the water, you probably think of Laso Schaller. The Brazilian-Swiss extreme athlete achieved a 191-foot jump in 2015, which became the new world record. But whose records are the highest? Laso Schaller, Di Huanran, Rick Winters, and Rob Dyrdek are all excellent jumpers, but who are they? Who can perform the most significant jump into the water?
On March 8, 2017, a Swiss cliff jumper called Laso Schaller broke the world record for the highest jump into the water by leaping 58.8 meters (192.9 feet) off a specially constructed platform into a water-filled pool. The water was two-hundred and twenty-six feet deep. Schaller reached a top speed of 123 km/h (76.4 mph) during his jump and landed in just 3.58 seconds. Schaller’s descent was recorded on his helmet camera.
The aerated 26-foot-deep pool was created for the jump. Six tanks were used to aerate the water before Schaller made his leap. Unfortunately, he was estimated to be traveling at 76 mph when he landed and suffered a dislocated hip. Nevertheless, the stunt prompted Red Bull to appoint a unique team of doctors to oversee Schaller’s progress.
The Cascada del Salto is a waterfall near the Swiss-Italian border, and when the water falls, it plunges 193 feet into a pool. With dozens of spectators and Red Bull videographers gathered around, Schaller used his right leg to propel himself into the air. In addition to being able to jump from an eight-foot-high platform, Schaller has become a household name thanks to his record-breaking stunts.
To accomplish this feat, Laso Schaller had to build a platform to enter the water safely. The platform allowed him to clear the debris that was in his way of leaping. Schaller’s team spent many days studying the cliff face and then set up the high-diving platform. After a series of tests, Schaller achieved the world record by jumping 58.8 meters into the water. The incredible feat is also the first of its kind and has been documented by numerous television and radio broadcasts.
One of the most extreme sports is cliff diving, and Di Huanran set the Guinness World Record for the highest jump into the water in 2008 by jumping from a waterfall. He was 51 years old but did not let his age hinder him. He climbed to the top of the waterfall and jumped three times over the water, then repeated the process three more times in front of a large crowd. Finally, Di Huanran climbed back up to the top of the waterfall to complete the feat.
The 25-meter Diaoshuilou Waterfall plunges into Jingpo Lake, causing the largest waterfall in China to erupt in an arc. Di Huanran climbed the half-cliff face to admire the waterfall, then lifted his palms to pray as he jumped headfirst. The whirlpool was so strong that he trained his fingertips on the center of the vortex to ensure a safe landing.
Rob Dyrdek has set 21 Guinness World Records known for his skateboarding achievements. During his skateboarding career, he has broken several records, including the longest 50-50 rail grind, the longest board slide, and the highest jump into the water from a skateboard ramp. He has also designed his line of skateboard shoes, started his hip-hop label, and opened a skate shop.
Aside from his athletic ability, Rob Dyrdek is a father and husband. In 2015, he married his long-time girlfriend, Briyana Noelle Flores, a model, and entrepreneur. He and Briyana have two children, Kodah Dash and Nala Ryan Dyrdek. They live in Los Angeles, California, near all his business endeavors. For more on Rob Dyrdek, read on.
After dropping out of high school at 12, Dyrdek moved to California and began skateboarding professionally. In 1993, he received sponsorship from the same company as his idol, Neil Blender. The two eventually teamed up to form Alien Workshop, which became one of the most popular skateboard deck sponsors. By 16, Dyrdek was already earning money through professional skateboarding. By the time he was 16, Dyrdek was already a millionaire.
Since then, Dyrdek has branched out into entertainment. In 2006, he starred in the reality show Rob & Big, alongside Christopher “Big Black” Boykin. The two men became fast friends and bodyguards for each other. They filmed several episodes of the show and eventually split up. Dyrdek has also hosted a talent show, Amazingness, on MTV.
Rob Dyrdek’s ramp jump
The skateboarding world has taken notice of Dyrdek’s impressive tricks. The X-Games athlete and reality show star has broken 21 skateboarding world records, including the highest skateboard ramp jump into the water at 10 feet 8 inches. He also holds the record for the longest skateboard slide (100 feet 5.75 inches) and the highest skateboard ramp jump into the water. Dyrdek’s ramp jump into water is not the first time he has jumped into the water, but his newest record is the highest skateboard ramp jump into the water.
After the launch of the video game “Skate 2,” Dyrdek jumped into the water on a ramp to win the game. In addition, Dyrdek appeared in the video game “Ridiculousness,” which was co-hosted by Johnny Knoxville and Chanel West Coast. His infamous ramp jump into water is a favorite among fans, with over five million people watching it online.
Despite Dyrdek’s impressive tricks, his stunts still pose several challenges for fans. His second attempt to break the world record was not without risk. His car spun around on landing, but he managed to avoid crashing into the barrier and walked away unharmed. Even though the stunt was a disaster, it still counts as a record-breaking trick.
John Bream’s plan to jump 200ft from a helicopter
A daredevil from the UK has failed in his attempt to break the world record for jumping from a helicopter to the sea. Instead, he was pulled from the sea and rescued by divers. Even though he was unconscious, he later started walking and talking to the paramedics. According to the daredevil’s father, John, the stunt was not to die. Instead, he had hoped to raise awareness of the suicide of veterans and to raise funds for a veteran charity.
Mr. Bream plans to do the same stunt again, but this time from a height of 200ft, which would break the current world record of 192ft. The stunt is risky, as it could result in severe injury or even death. However, Mr. Bream has spent the last year and a half training and is the proud father of three. His kids call him the modern Evel Knievel. The father-of-three is a keen skydiver with two records: a 122ft dive into British waters and a 40ft freefall into water.
‘John the Flying Fish, a former paratrooper, is trying to break two world records by attempting a 200ft freefall from a helicopter into the water without a parachute. Although Guinness World Records may not verify his attempt, the stunt has made headlines worldwide. However, the world record for the highest freefall into the water from an aircraft is held by Laso Schaller, who jumped from a cliff in Switzerland in 2015.
