What's the challenge?
To jump off a 25 ft cliff.
What are you afraid of?
1. The falling feeling in my stomach (which I really dislike)
2. Hurting myself when landing into the water from such height
How was the experience?
Since I was like 2 years old I've been going to this beach club in Venezuela, Puerto Azul, where they had 4 diving boards in the big swimming pool that I never even dared to go up the ladder. There was one diving board very close to the floor, that one I managed to dive from, but the rest, I never even tried. So this challenge is definitely one of the toughest ones so far. I decided to do it at a water park so my only worry was the height, not the danger of hitting a rock. My turn came and I was petrified, fear was taking control over me, looking down was terrifying but looking ahead didn't help either. I tried several times at my first attempt but simply couldn't. The pool guard was not happy with me and the people waiting in line started cheering for me. So I started counting with my fingers: 3, 2, 1 and I finally Jumped! Counting definitely helped!!! I can't believe I did it! I landed on my butt which kinda hurt, and the bruises do not look good, but the feeling of accomplishment is definitely worth it.
