Man Bellyflops from 35 Feet into 12 Inches of Water Answered

A man jumps 35 feet onto a kiddie pool with a foot of water in front of dozens of kids and delivers a thrilling show instead of a tragic occasion to haunt them the rest of their lives. Future plans include a jump from 40 feet. Stay tuned.

I love how someone screams, "Holy Sh...." right before the diver lands.

So what happens if some lunatic follows him up there? Can anyone do it who lands right, or is there years of conditioning and training necessary? He did a nice, even, flat bellyflop, but he did fold his arms in front of him at the last minute - to keep from getting the wind knocked out of him? To keep from getting a bloody nose?

Denver, CO, eh? I didn't know this was going on, or I would have gone and watched. We've got some pretty nutty people here...

He dropped his arms down to break the surface tension. I call this Ible.

i guess the mats were important, im not sure he touched the bottom, but i guess the energy of the fall was nearly all taken by them and a just a little bit by the water, when the speed of the guy wasn't that great... kinda difficult to explain my idea... still VERY impressing though, i wouldn't do it... ;)

i think your right. the crash mats underneath the pool took most of it. he just sank through the water which slowed him down a little and then hit the crash mats. they really do cushion things alot.

I remember reading somewhere that there's a whole skillset to this "shallow water diving" thing. Doing a proper bellyflop is pretty important, for instance.

Note that 35 feet is about the same height at the 10meter platform where most of the olympic action took place. Sure looks higher when they're trying to emphasize the height (here) than when they're not (diving); watching diving during the Olympics, there were only a couple of shots/angles that gave you an idea just how high up 10m IS...

You won't catch me on either one, thank you very much... (it does make you wonder about the possibilities of surviving falls out of planes. IIRC, high divers (150+ feet) come pretty close to reaching "terminal velocity" (though they tend to get bubbles), so you'd think that if you didn't have to worry about flips and form and such, a dive from pretty much any height into water ought to be at least "survivable." Given skill. And luck...

Well, he didn't look red at all. Did he touch the bottom? Because there were mats and that would you cheating
