Diving In Paradise (Pt. 4 of 10)

Posted by Joseph Miller on

Think of your ideal vacation spot. Is it lounging in a tropical paradise? Maybe strolling the streets of a romantic European city? Perhaps it's dashing down a snowy mountainside and cozying up to a fire inside a log cabin?

How about taking a leap off a 30-meter cliff? No? But the views are amazing!

The life of a cliff diver is more than adrenaline and a rare act of flight as a human being. During the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, athletes will travel to 9 different, stunning locations around the world and experience not only the beautiful horizons, but also engage with the culture around.

The men of the USA Cliff Diving Team have experienced various different cultures, made many masses of fans, and eaten a lot of great food around the world. We asked a few of the members to tell us a few words about their favorite diving locations:

Amalfi Coast, Italy

Picturesque cliff diving mecca with incredible food.” - Steven LoBue

Amalfi Coast is a small tourist town in the Province of Salerno in Southern Italy, known for its beautiful coastline and magnificent cliffs.
