If we talk about extreme sports, bungee is certainly the most risky but not in which there have been more accidents. To give a general overview without going into details of the history of this sport properly we must say that it achieved a great boom at In the mid 90’s and it was at that time that it expanded to almost all the countries of the world. At this moment bungee is a sport with great number of fans worldwide. There are many different places to jump in all corners of the planet, from a platform with 180 meters of fall next to the waterfalls Victoria in Africa, to a cable car in Switzerland.
Every day new places open to jump and more people experience the feeling of freedom that bungee jumping offers. As a teacher of physical education for me, safety is the most important and one of the reasons for more accidents in the bungee is to use ropes and earrings that do not resist our own body since they are placed to a person who weighs 90kilos the same means Security than a person who weighs 45 kilos.
That is why you do wherever you make this jump in Africa or Switzerland always keep in mind where you are going to do, be a company recognized in the world of bungee, there are professional instructors and other than just a platform with a rope And nothing more. The practice of this sport with the required securities makes it a safe and fun experience.
