Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series
3rd And 4th Of August 2012
From 27 metres high and reaching speeds of up to 85kph, the world’s best divers will compete head-to-head in seven stops including Ireland between June and September.
At the moment the location hasn’t fully been revealed, But we can almost say it will be at The Serpent’s Lair or Poll na Peist on Inis Mor on the Aran Islands.
The Serpents Lair is what fishermen call a “blowhole,” or a shoreline window to subterranean caverns, which spurt out water each day as high tide approaches. What differentiates the Serpent’s Lair from other blowholes, though, is that it’s a near-perfect rectangle, thus its inexplicable nature.
Cliff diving involves athletes leaping into water from heights of 23m to 28m for men and 18m to 23m for women.
We will keep you all posted with more info and direction to this dive pool as soon as we get them..
