Regular People Were Tricked Into High Diving And Shit Got Real

Nope.

Posted on

High diving is definitely up there on the list of things someone might not want to do voluntarily. We rounded up a few people to get lessons from a diving coach...and little did they know that by the end of the day, they'd be diving from the same height that Olympic divers do.

Some were challenging themselves to address traumatic experiences…

...while others were just plain ol' scared.

Overall, though, everyone was just feeding off the adrenaline.

And after shaking off the nerves, they slayed.

They did so well that they were getting a little cocky — so we had a little surprise for them... *evil laugh*

Instead of sticking to the original plan and heading back to work, they traveled to Mission Viejo to tackle the real deal:

Nah, I'm good.

But they took that leap of faith...

...and jumped.

Excuse me, I’m just shittin’ my pants

They did a good job! No one hit the board or got hurt! 🏊🏊

And by the end of the day, all the participants definitely had a deeper respect for divers *no pun intended.*
