Cliff Diving in Ireland - Red Bull World Series 2014 (Video)
Welcome to Inis Mór. This is the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay in Ireland and is home to the legendary Serpent's Lair. Though this hole in the land looks man-made, it's actually an effect of erosion carving away a subterranean passage and leaving a hole which is connected to the sea.
Stormy waters can cause the waters to spray and crash within the hole, giving the impression of a thrashing serpent underneath the surface. Luckily, the weather was much calmer when the Red Bull crew visited for the tour's first stop on European terrain. This incredible backdrop provides the perfect setting for cliff diving, a sport of finesse and beauty.
Watch Gary Hunt beat thirteen other divers from ten different countries, diving almost thirty meters into these spectacular waters.
