The Italian coast offers beautiful locations, gorgeous blue waters and cliffs—cliffs that are just screaming to be dominated.
Mashable’s Jenni Ryall introduces us to one way you can enjoy a truly inviting and refreshing destination.
Rather than sunbathe your stress away, a group of pals decided to leap from high atop naturally occurring perches.
They twist, turn and dive from perilous cliffs that feature dangerous rocky outcrops and some that seem far too high for mere mortals to dive off of.
Fortunately, the entire endeavor is captured in beautiful 4K video and delivered right here on the Internet:
The video is posted to Devin Graham’s YouTube channel, which goes by the moniker Devin Super Tramp.
The channel explains: “They took regular Aussie guy, Matt, who’s dream (sic) was to dive into the Mediterranean, and amped this up to extreme levels with Team Supertramp (sic). Not only did Contiki make this dream come true for Matt, we hooked him up with the opportunity to watch a bunch of professional athletes show him how it’s really done, on some massive cliffs in Italy’s Amalfi Coast.”
As Ryall explains, the exhibition of falling with style comes thanks to a collaboration with Contiki, which is allowing travelers to live out their wildest dreams.
The website states, “Together with daredevil stunt men, infamous pranksters, bad-[expletive] dancers and famous faces who just love to party, we're on a mission to create the best travel stories the world has ever seen.”
Mashable spoke with Matt Johnson, who is the Matt referenced above. He had this to say: “It was such an incredible feeling. When you swim to the surface and pop your head out of the water and everyone is cheering is such a buzz. When you're in the water looking back at the cliff it really puts into perspective what you've just jumped.”
Contiki offers a bit more on the backstory behind Johnson’s journey, stating that he had no idea he would be diving from such locations.
As we can see in the video, Team Super Tramp did their best to create a prolific adventure for this Brisbane local looking to enjoy Italy’s bluest treasures.
We have to say, it sure beats a day by the pool.
