Døds Diving or Death Diving is an extreme sport with serious risk, and all jumps during events and training are performed by professionals or under the supervision of professionals. Accordingly, must insist that no one attempt to recreate or re-enact any Døds Diving activity done in collaboration with Døds Federation or others.
For all athletes and others, we ask you always to follow our ten safety rules. All jumps over 10 meters are considered extremely dangerous and are never recommended. Døds is about having fun and not putting yourself or others in danger at any time.
THE 10 SAFETY RULES OF DØDS
- Never jump alone – in case you need help
- Dødsing is all about skills – progress gradually from the poolside, and don’t go higher until you are ready to do a controlled dive
- Always check the landing zone for obstacles – don’t take risks, and don’t dive if there are waves and wind
- Always have someone telling you when it’s clear to jump
- Always measure the height from the platform to the water if you're uncertain
- Check the stability and if the platform is slippery
- Always check the water depth – we recommend a depth of 5 meters for a 10-meter jump
- Practice your tricks from lower heights to master them before taking them higher
- Never do jumps above 10 meters – the risk for injuries increases significantly above 10 meters – even with perfect landings
- Don't Døds if you have any physical limitations that might endanger you, including limited swimming skills. Under no circumstances Døds under the influence of medications, drugs, or alcohol
