The sport of diving is the activity of plunging into the water from the diving boards; either feet first or head first, may it be on cliffs, docks, shores and pool sides. Enthusiasts dive to get into the water either for fun or in joining competition or attempting to do airborne acrobatic prior to landing gracefully into the water. During the period of 1800s, the sport of diving headfirst to the water had become popular, and was followed by a sport known as plunging was developed. The divers will take their water plunge from the dock or poolside, then hold their breaths as they glide under the water and swim as deeper as they can.

Diving as an activity has evolved tremendously as the participants have attempted to do their take-offs from greater and higher heights. In the countries of the United States and Europe, their bridges served as their locations from which to dive. In Mexico, specifically in Acapulco, the dives and jumps to the sea from high cliffs were tried as the tides come in. In Hawaii, the divers, jumped and then dived and at the same time somersaulted from greater heights landing into waterfalls or deep pools.

In diving competitions, the divers are performing basic dives, twists and somersaults which they will be completing before entering the water. There are separate events which are held for different kinds of divers. For the springboard divers, they have a narrower drive from a springy board which flexes under movement and weight. On the other hand, for the platform divers, they dive fixedly on a rigid platform. There are also judges who evaluate and assess their dives and give the divers their scores. Before scoring, the judges give high considerations on factors like the approaches, take-offs; the similarities of heights the divers have reached while diving; the coordination of their timing and movements, the angle of their water entrance and the distances of the boards from the entries.

A diver’s basic dive involves four unique parts, first is the starting position followed by the take-off position, thirdly is the in-flight maneuvers and lastly is the water entrance. The divers learned all these components as they do their routines repeatedly. They also make use of their progressions in order to be able to do more unique and difficult dives. They normally started in simple techniques like the feet first position jumps then learning other alignment somersaults, body positions and twists. They often practice these on dry grounds using equipment namely safety harnesses with trampolines which suspend them to the air, they also make used of foam pits as cushion landings.

Now came in the modern sport of Diving which originated in Sweden and Germany during the 19th century. During this time as well, the people had began using gymnastic equipment in beaches during summer time. The divers practice and perform their routines from trapezes, springboards and flying rings as they land in the water after their aerial stunts. After some time, the rings and trapezes were taken away and what has became even more popular is diving from springboard and platforms, and such sport was known in many terms as plain high diving, fancy high diving and springboard diving.

The activity of Skydiving is a sport wherein people will jump out, either alone or in groups of an aircraft or land by means of a parachute. For the reason that the feeling of diving into the air and dropping a number of distance prior to opening their parachutes, the skydivers typically experience adrenaline rush and then later a sense of a peaceful well-being. This calm and soothing feeling can last long as soon as they landed on the ground.

As mechanics of the Skydiving sport, skydivers bring with them two parachutes in order to maximize safety. The primary parachute is contained in a deployment back which is placed in the back of the skydiver. The other parachute is known as a “reserve” which is also carried at the back, to be used in case the main parachute has malfunctioned.

Prior to jumping, the skydivers should make some preparations. The most essential is to pack their sport equipment cautiously. They should also head the coordination of their jump plan with their aircraft pilot; they should also discuss wind and weather information as well as determining the most excellent and safest area for the jumpers to go out the aircraft. Previous to boarding the aircraft, jumpers should practice their maneuvers while they are on the ground. From there, they should be able to determine the order of their jump order and their approach of landing to ensure that the mid-air impacts will not take place. Everybody will climb on the aircraft in reverse pattern of way out and strap themselves up securely to the floor or in the jump seats.

Subsequent to the takeoff, the aircraft first climbs to amid 3,200 to 4,200 m or 10,500 to 13,800 ft up in the air. Both the pilot and the spotter will check the aircraft’s progress and then the jumpers through the last approach on the jump area, also known as a “jump run”. Once the jumpers are over the accurate spot, the jumpers will then line up at the exit. Hold hands and finally steps to make it easier for the other jumpers to exit. Such preparations will enable the jumpers to jump together and execute their planned maneuvers by the time of their freefall.

A usual parachute ride will lasts for two to three minutes. The jumpers belonging to a well-disciplined group will avoid collisions by means of spacing out and landing sequentially in an orderly manner. Expert skydivers always have soft landing, they have their feet landed on the ground then run forward, they also know how to avoid injuring themselves.

The modern parachute we have today was invented during the late of the 18th century. During the early 20th century, the military has began making extensive usage of the parachutes, and after several periods it became as a military-designed equipment which features techniques and has given way to those we have now which are designed by the sport parachutists. Skydiving has later on become a very popular, competitive and recreational activity. Each and every single year, thousand of people are engaging to skydiving worldwide. The United States Parachute Association (USPA) governs the skydiving sport in the United States.

Surfing, in simplest terms, is the act of catching and riding a wave. It was discovered in the islands of Hawaii in the late 1700s but is believed to have deep-rooted into the Hawaiian culture much earlier. It is said that the chief demonstrated his superiority through his surfing abilities. Likewise, his authority is confirmed through his skills in the surf.

Today, Surfing has evolved into a worldwide competitive sport and has turned into a multimillion dollar business venture. Millions of dollars of revenues are generated through sales of equipment, clothing, gear, and accessories. Brand names, such as Billabong, Quicksilver, Reef, and O’Neill, to name a few, have become globally recognized trademarks. Surfing has also carved its niche in Hollywood, where several surfing oriented movies have reached blockbuster status in the recent years. Moreover, surfing champs have also become celebrities and millionaires through sponsorships.

The sport of Surfing has spread from the Hawaiian Islands to the shores of California, Sydney, Japan, South Africa, Spain, and many other cities cutting through language and cultural barriers. Major surfing competitions, like the World Qualifying Series (WQS) which serves as an elimination round for more prestigious competitions, such as the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) World Tour. The ASP World Tour competition is conducted in various locations across the globe, where top rated male and female surfers compete in their respective divisions for prestige and money. Another major competition is the British Surfing Association Championship which is open only to British and European surfers and the Triple Crown of Surfing Competition in Hawaii, where surfers compete in four events – with each event offering a chance to win prize money. Cash prices or purse in top level competitions range from about a hundred thousand dollars to as much as a quarter million dollars. Tournament winners also get product endorsement opportunities and sponsorships from the companies mentioned earlier, which could sometimes be even more lucrative than the prize money, and to the really lucky ones, a stint in the movie industry.

To thousands of surfing enthusiasts across the globe, it is just a sport and a hobby - a weekend getaway to escape the humdrum of life. Surfing is a lifestyle and could be a promising career opportunity to those who love the sea and are willing to take on the physical challenges the sport demand, to those who thrive on adrenaline, and to those who could look fear in the eye and ride 20-foot waves at astonishing speeds. The sport requires commitment, discipline, and patience practicing for hundreds of hours out in the open sea in order to excel. It also requires the perseverance to try again every time a wave is missed or falls off the board while inside the barrel.

Surfing is a nature-powered sport, harnessing the power of the waves in generating speed and executing different moves or maneuvers. The tournament winner is determined by the judges’ scoring given a set of criteria, like the surfer’s control, degree of difficulty, and grace of executing certain maneuvers. The numerical scoring system the judges use is a scale of 1 to 10 points - 0 to 2 points means poor execution and 8 to 10 points means excellent execution. Like every other sport and everything else in life, surfing is not without risk and dangers. These could be rocks, reef, and sandbars that the surfer might slam onto and drown, so it is important to wear the proper clothing and gear.

Lastly, watch out for those men in grey suits - that means sharks in surf talk!
