Nevis Bungy - 2008
After giving a presentation in Dunedin in September 2008, I headed off to Queenstown for a break. This was the longest jump (134 metres) that I have ever done and it was in the worst weather ever. The jump platform is suspended over a valley and was moving around quite a bit in the wind and rain. It wasn't just a matter of jumping...but waiting for the platform to calm down a bit. The Jump Master asked if I had done any bungy jumps before, and when I said yes, he suggested I did a bullet dive (arms held by your sides to fall faster) in the torrential wind and rain. It might look like I was winched up quickly after the jump, but in fact that part of the video is just sped up a bit.
