"Ten Meter Tower"

In this documentary short titled Ten Meter Tower, Swedish filmmakers Maximilien Van Aertryck and Axel Danielson paid 67 people $30 to climb to the top of a ten meter (33 foot) high dive for the very first time all while being filmed. Would they decide to jump? Would they be too scared? The resulting footage is surprisingly riveting as people slowly come to terms with their fears and make a decision. It’s one thing to admit defeat in private, but adding the cameras must add a near insurmountable amount of pressure.

Thanks but I'll pass...I had an 'argument' with a one metre diving board, it threw me off when for some weird reason it 'buckled'. I Only weighed around 147 pounds so it wasn't that ! I hit the edge of the board on my spine, bounced from that onto the edge of the pool and then into the water...and after they had dragged me out I spent 9 months in traction! Aint NO way you are getting ME on a ten metre board!

#3 ...but this is a platform, dearie, not a board. Maybe Thunder can hold your hand on the way down? ::(|)

Where do I have to sign for them to give me access to one of these AND pay me for it? This has been on my to do list for a long time now, I'll jump on the first chance I see.

Eighter if you jump or if you climb down again: It's a loooong way down :-)

But anyway: if you jump or not, at least you tried up there and that's important!

#3 Thunders is way too scared to jump off this, thunders doesn't even jump in from the edge of the pool, she can hold hands for other dares, but not this one. ;)

Not sure I could do it. Very proud of those that overcame their fear and jumped. Not an easy decision for some!

This is a double whammy for me, because I'm not keen on heights and I'm also not keen on deep water. Now if they could remove one of my fears by emptying the pool I'd think about it. 8-)
I would be interested to know how many of those who jumped wanted to immediately di it again and if they there would have been any trepidation the second time?
