Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series is an action-packed, adrenaline-fueled show that features some of the world's best cliff divers performing daring stunts from towering cliffs in some of the most beautiful locations around the globe. The show is hosted on Red Bull TV and offers viewers a thrilling and immersive experience as they witness the athletes push their limits to execute jaw-dropping feats.

The series has been running since 2009, and it brings together elite athletes from some of the most extreme sports backgrounds such as diving, gymnastics and even Olympic diving, who showcase their skills and creativity in five-stop global tour. The 2012 edition featured the likes of J. David Hinze, David O'Caoimh, and David Colturi, among others.

The show is produced in partnership with the established Red Bull media house, which boasts a wealth of audio and visual tools that bring the cliff diving experience to life. Viewers are immediately drawn into the spectacle from the very first frame as they follow the athletes through their preparation, anticipation and up to the final leap.

Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series's high-octane stunts are designed to test the divers' courage, skill and determination; it is not for the faint of heart. The athletes dive from natural structures in the most awe-inspiring locations, including metamorphic rock formations, rugged cliff faces, and tiny islands in the middle of the ocean. The free falls can be up to 27 meters, depending on the diving location of the competition. It is not hard to imagine the risks involved.

Moreover, the unique feature of the cliff diving competition is that the athletes have only seconds to perfect the art form. Their preparation is crucial, as there are no second chances once they leap off the cliff. Dives are scored by a panel of judges based on three criteria: performance, which includes the athletic execution and technique of the dive, the degree of difficulty based on the dive's complexity and degree of danger, and the artistry, including the creativity, originality, and aesthetics of the dive.

The scoring system is dynamic, making for a highly competitive series, with athletes regularly pushing the boundaries with new dives, choreographed to keep viewers breathless. There is a palpable tension that builds as divers take turns challenging each other, adding a level of unpredictability, suspense, and excitement that extends to the end of every competition.

The show's host, ex-pro footballer and current athlete commentator, Mark Cuban, uses his entertaining commentary style to steer viewers' engagement with the action. Cuban's expertise on the game, combined with his enthusiasm and knowledge of cliff diving, makes him the perfect host for diving fans, whether long-time or new.

Throughout the series, viewers are treated to breathtaking coverage showcasing innovative camera work, angles and positions that capture every moment of the dives in high-definition. The picturesque backdrops of the different locations provide an added edge to this already visually-incredible sport, with highlights ranging from steep cliffs to coral reefs, even ice-covered waters.

In summary, Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series is a must-watch for fans of elite sports as well as average adrenaline enthusiasts. The show offers extreme entertainment, athleticism, and skill while taking viewers to some of the world's most stunning and awe-inspiring destinations. If you're in search of a thrill, look no further than this gripping series that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
