Welcome to USA Cliff Diving
Awesome behind the scenes footage of the guys jumping from a rooftop on the Adriatic coast of Italy. To get permission the guys just went up and asked… Ok maybe they wrote their own release of liability too, which may or may not hold up in court, but oh well! Everyone lived!!
All of us here at “USA Cliff Diving” have one goal: Help Cliff Diving reach it’s greatest potential.
How do we plan on doing that? Well, we use our own unique blend of personality and experience to provide an unadulterated view into our lifestyles as Cliff Divers. We hope the awareness we raise through our candid approach to documenting our experience creates more opportunities for the individuals that make this one-of-a-kind sport possible.
We also believe that raising awareness alone won’t accomplish our goal, on a more concrete level we hope to act as an educational resource for everyone in the Cliff Diving community. Whether you’re a fan, a diver, or a supporter don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. We’re always eager to connect you with answers!
“These guys are smart. They pretty much have computer brains, they could be doing anything but they were like, nah, we'll be divers. ”
“The guys from "USA Cliff Diving" are not only an inspiration but, in my opinion, the true embodiment of the American dream. I wish them the best of luck, I believe it's only a matter of time before they become minor internet celebrities. ”
“I'm the Hamburglar”

The average height of the competition platform is 27.5 meters, or around 90 feet. This is approximately the height of the 10th story of most buildings.
Typical training schedule involves double sessions 6 days a week in the pool or gym.
The number of competitions that are hosted every year varies. Between the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series and other sponsored events there tend to be around 10-15 events a year.
While the number of events vary, the invite lists for these competitions can be limited. This means we’re lucky to get 10+ competitions in any given year.
Yes. It always hurts, sometimes much less than others, so it’s really just about minimizing the pain. However, the pain is occasionally masked completely by the adrenaline rush that comes from performing a dive.
Unfortunately it’s extremely difficult to practice from competition height for a couple of reasons:
When you hit the water at ~ 60MPH expecting to stop in 10-15 feet of water a lot of things can go wrong. We’ve seen injuries to just about every part of the body but some of the most common injuries include:
Less common injuries include hitting the platform, unless you’re Steven LoBue.
The number of divers who compete professionally in Cliff Diving competitions is growing. However, due to the limited number competitions each year there are only a few dozen men and women who are able to compete professionally.
