As you would expect, since the first competition in 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has grown steadily and is now one of the biggest spectator sports that have come to us, courtesy of Red Bull. It's said it takes around three secondds from take off to landing and that those taking part can reach speeds of up to 85kph before they hit the surface. Yikes!
