Friend of mine jumped off there years ago, ended up with wetsuit completely ripped off from the impact, and in plaster from neck to waist for months, very lucky guy. Dunno how these guys don't get hurt.

Blimey who was that Gav? must have needed air rescue I guess.
Apparently they use large air pumps at these events to defuse the water around the dive zone, which would reduce inpact I guess.
