Since 2009, the Red Bull cliff diving series has grown into an extreme sport filled with adrenaline junkies from all over the world. More than just diving off cliffs, each athlete will free fall from up to 27 meters high while performing acrobatics in the air.

According to the Red Bull website, "Height speed and G force, as well as aerial awareness, timing, and physical strength, all play a huge role in executing the perfect dive."

Throughout the cliff diving tour, 12 men and women have competed, earning championship points at each stop. As the season comes to an end, the best women and men will be crowned with the King Kahekili trophy and win a prize fund.

The event is open to the public and has free admission. However, arriving early to secure a spot with the best vantage point is encouraged. A jumbotron will also be placed within the venue so you don't miss any of the excitement.
