35' or so of a cliff near the dam at Lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma. That was circa 1978. Since then about 3 feet off the edge of my pool.

Here's some dude from London jumping of a cliff in Croatia. Then another guy from Jordan from a higher cliff. I kept my ass on the boat!

Water, I at about age 16 went often to a big public pool in the Albany area and regularly used a 15' diving board. That for distance or perhaps the board at Naval boot camp at Great Lakes. If I remember right it was about 15' or higher and it was part of passing the swimming part of the requirements!

In college there was a closed quarry not too far away. We went a few times and jumped off some pretty high stuff. I went off the "second highest" point once, about 50 feet I would guess. It scared the shit out of me. Some of my fraternity brothers jumped off the highest point, we were guessing about 80 feet, I passed.

The next time I went off a 3 meter diving board, it looked like nothing!

Around 30' while wearing a kapok into the Adriatic. Nothing like having rifles pointed at you while treading water.

As a young teen I would go to the SHOF on FTL Beach, they closed the 10-meter on the tower, but you could go to the second platform, was able to do a 1.5 flip from 20-feet, was not scary as a young punk.

Also, lots of dredged rock pits in SE FL, used to dive from trees with platforms, some were 25 feet, not a problem.

About 5 years ago I jumped, did not dive, off the b-i-l's tri-level, about 25 feet, only feet first, getting scarier with age, but I do not back down from a challenge, as the young buck nephews thought the old man would not do it, I showed those pricks the old man can still kick some arse.

2000 ft ~

I hurt my knee in jump school with two jumps left to graduate. In order to not be recycled or possibly dropped, I'd look for puddles on the ground, lift the bad leg and land in the puddles on my backside.

Yes, I'm amazing.

Yup, from one of the thousand islands off the southern coast. Vis, one of the top beaches on the globe!

We had a 12 foot high dive at the pool we went to as kids. There was an abandoned rock quarry that was flooded out that we used as a swimming hole which had a few jumps and if I remember correctly the highest was about 30 feet from the water. I was one of the few who would jump from there. The highest fall I ever took without hitting water is when I fell out of a tree house we made which was about 20 feet. Landed flat on my back but no injuries except for my pride. I was really lucky because right next to where I fell was a 2x4 with a bunch of nails sticking out of it.
