Jamaican me crazy! Is this the coolest cliff dive ever?


Cape Town - A Jamaican man, only known as Spider, jumped off an extended platform at the legendary Rick's Cafe in Negril, Jamaica for a mere $20, or R220 (as calculated on 24 October), much to the delight of the tourists at the bar. 

Spider seems at complete ease on the small wooden platform that extends even higher up than the 'normal' 11 meter-high platform from where cliff divers usually jump. He repeatedly says, "GoPro no problem, Jamaica", as he readies for his big 24 meter-high jump
