A dive into the windsurfer: don't try this at your home spot

A diver has nearly lost his life after jumping off a cliff in front of a passing windsurfer.

Now, here's a lesson to all watermen. Please, don't try this at your home spot, even if you know the place like the back of your hands.

A cliff diver has plunged into the water as a windsurfer was sailing by near a rocky bluff.

The dangerous stunt could've ended up in tragedy for both water sportsmen.

It's not clear whether the people up in the cliff knew that a windsurfer was approaching the diving site, but the truth is that the man landed only a couple of meters away in front of the board and sail.

The diver jumped from a 45-foot cliff somewhere in the Caribbean.
