La Quebrada

Andrey Molina

Santa Ana, United States

Artist's Description

La Quebrada are cliffs in Acapulco Mexico where professional cliff divers who perform daily shows diving off cliffs into deep ocean water. Although it may look like just a bunch of people having some weekend fun jumping off a cliff into the water, the skill and precision that is involved in professional cliff diving is anything but that. Considerations like wind and water depth must be taken into careful consideration as well as the tide and the timing of each jumpers leaps. Divers can reach free fall speeds of up to 50 mph during a jump so hitting the water properly so as not to cause an impact injury is also a factor.
