What's Up Dock?

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to the excitement that is Dock Diving!
Here are a few clips from my first lesson.


Learning to launch upward to grab the bumper which is suspended 4' above the water. In the "Fetch It" competition, the bumper starts out 10 feet from the dock and moves away from the dock in one foot increments.

Participated in my first Dock Diving weekend.  My best jump was 9'8".  Aside from having a great time, I went home with a ton of goodies, 2 lovely rosettes and my first Dock Diving Title: UKC UNJ (Novice Division).

The first rosette is for having the highest cumulative score (Novice).
The second rosette is for my second place finish (Novice) in the finals.
