HOW TO GUARANTEE a great photo?

Get some crazy, brave athletes and ask them to dive off a 27-metre board placed at the edge of the historic and imposing El Morro, the fortress guarding the entrance to Havana bay in Cuba.

Reckon we can beat that though? Red Bull’s cliff divers will be in Ireland on 28 and 29 June for what they describe as the most testing part of their world tour.

They will head to the Serpent’s Lair at Inis Mór for the third stop of the series where spectators will see them dive at speeds of more than 85kph off a platform into the crashing waves below.
