    For a second there, I thought he seriously hurt himself.
    Then he got up.
    Damn.

    Well, anyway... well done, strange man.

    Well, I guess if you`re going to go into shallow water like that, a belly flop is the way to go. The water will give, but offer enough resistance to slow you down. But still...crazy. I wouldn`t do that for a million dollars.

    I thought a belly flop from 4 feet was painful.

    That reminds me, once a 4 or 5 year old accidently did a belly flop off the high dive, about 13 feet, and the lifegaurd had to help them out.

    If any of you have done a 10m jump you would understand how much that really had to hurt. I have seen people seriously bruise the bottoms of their feet by landing flat footed when doing just a straight jump, and that is some of the more minor injuries. I agree with the crash mats not making any difference with the surface tension though I am sure they helped once it broke. I am guessing this man did a lot of conditioning for this stunt, it isn`t a thing you are likely to walk away from when doing on a whim.
