Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series took place last weekend in the Azores, Portugal with some insane results.

American vaulter Steven LoBue came out on top with nearly 150 points (the highest you can get in the competition) for his quint somersault with a half twist.

Just check out this unreal gallery from the weekend and the video highlights of the pros at work.

Here are a few amateurs who’ve had a whack at cliff diving themselves. The results are, errr…. varied. It’s nothing to do with the comp itself. So, they may not be as slick, but it’s still jaw-droppingly impressive.
