Diving and divers

It is safe to say that diving has become one of the most popular types of sports entertainment in recent years. And in terms of development dynamics it can only be compared with paintball. It would seem that a couple of years ago, units were swimming under water, and today we can already talk about the phenomenon of diving – with such a powerful wave it burst into our lives. More and more people are joining the romantic army of divers, and there is nothing surprising in this, because the world of diving is so rich and diverse! An important role in the popularity of diving tourism is played by the simplicity of traveling to the tropical seas, inaccessible to the older generation.

TRAVIS RICE – REAL EXTREME!

In 2018, the American athlete Travis Rice celebrated his 36th birthday. Dry statistics, dry numbers. There are many talented people in the world who have shown themselves to be profitable in one or another sport, many champions, prize-winners, and laureates.

The snowboard turned for Rice into the meaning of life a little later – at the age of 18. Two Continue reading

JEB CORLISS – REAL EXTREME!

Among the people who dreamed of learning to fly, it is worth mentioning the American Jeb Corliss.

It was then that he firmly declared to his aunt that he would definitely learn to fly.
Jeb’s family lived in the United States in New Mexico. The future skydiver changed schools one after another. Because of this, he was constantly a stranger among the rest of the children, this taught him to fight fear. His childhood was full of travels to India and Afghanistan due to the fact that his parents were antique dealers. Jeb’s favorites were scorpions, tarantulas, and even rattlesnakes. He often dragged them to his home. Continue reading
