Early morning by 0730HRS, Gua Damai was already buzzing with activities. 27 BASE jumpers from 7 nations took the 96 metres cliff jump challenge. Out of the 27 jumpers, three of them were women.
The weather was good and accommodating,making the event smooth till the end. By 1100HRS, the jumpers have wrapped up and called it a very good day.
This year is the fifth year and we get to see the highest number of jumpers so far. The total jump was 62 times. It is also a record number for the highest in the number of countries participating.
The most number of participants were from Russia. They are fond of the "unpacked jump" technique, which helped them to grab the chutes and climb up the cliff faster.
