Spanish divers perform daredevil stunt


Tandem diver throws partner over his head as they plunge off a 33ft-high board in ‘world first’ synchronised stunt

  • Carlos Gimeno and Nico Garcia Boissier developed the stunt on Gran Canaria 
  • Gimeno carries his partner on his back before leaping off the 33ft high platform
  • Gimeno performs a forward roll while Garcia completes a simultaneous back flip
  • Both men rotate to a feet first position and enter the water at the same time 

This is the heart stopping moment a pair of professional divers performed a synchronised stunt from a 33ft high board. 

Carlos Gimeno and Nico Garcia Boissier developed the routine and performed the intricate dive at the Metropole club in Gran Canaria. 

The pair, who are both from the island, claimed their stunt was unique.

In the footage, Garcia stretches his arms and is carried by Gimeno on his back. Garcia is pointing away from his diving partner, who approaches the edge of the board slowly. 

Gimeno, as he prepares for the stunt, bends his knees and launches off the platform, using the strength of his arms to propel his dive partner towards the middle of the pool.

Gimeno immediately begins a front roll while his partner uses his momentum to complete a back flip. 

Amazingly, both men hit the water feet-first at exactly the same time.  

Gimeno was the first Spaniard to compete in the Red Bull cliff diving competition and has participated on the Red Bull circuit.  

Garcia has participated in many national events and has also competed in South Korea.

In an interview with Spanish Radio Television (RTVE), Garcia claimed he was scared of heights. 

One social media user claimed: ‘I felt scared just from watching it.’
