Description

  • This film includes excellent color footage of expert high divers diving from the tower platform at Wakulla Springs. Men and women dive off springboards mounted to the tower, performing a variety of diving techniques, including forward, reverse and twisting somersaults. The divers then move to the highest platform to perform various dives, including handstand dives. A small crowd of swimsuit-clad onlookers watches from different levels of the tower. There are shots of a floating platform and views of the wooded areas beyond the springs. A woman sitting on a smaller floating platform waves at the camera.
