I don't think the diver had to jump. I could have vaulted from my vantage point.
I was wrong about the height. I think I said I thought it was 20 feet above the water and I was corrected and told that they get down to about 15 feet. It was the hotness.
Are you sure this wasn't happening from Cape Canaveral?
I have a commercial airline pilot in my complex who flatly debunked Zac's position. He spoke to his flying buddies at work and they had nothing nice to say about it either...yet Zac refuses to give in. His ignorance must really put a strain on your relationship.
entering the water in dive gear is alot easier jumping from 15' then trying to get down to the water line with waves, etc.
i've gone 10'-15' off of dive boats regularly (depending on the swells).
anything cool in the marble quarry?
