Brazillian born, Swiss raised, 27-year-old Laso Schaller has set a new cliff-jump world record at 195′ landing in only 26′ of water on August 4th, 2015. He went from 0mph to 75mph during his 195′ drop and hit the water hard created a sound like a gunshot.
Laso’s team set up air tanks to create bubbles that would break the surface tension of the water and provide a softer landing. Laso missed the aerated water and hit hard water on his landing which slightly dislocated his right hip for a second or two.
“Once you get above 25m (82ft), everything starts to look and feel the same,” he says. “The only difference is the airtime.” – Laso Schaller
He performed his jump at the Cascata del Salto in Switzerland.
The jump on endless repeat…
