"Falling with style!" 

That is what diving is all about, according to the popular movie Toy Story. Diving as a fun sport gained popularity in the 17th century in Europe.

Today, people learn to dive either for the adventure and also to take part in competitions. It is a major Olympic sport and quite popular in many countries. Diving is all about style, strength, performance and grace. 

Diving Basics

The basic requirement for a beginner is to be able to swim well. Confidence is another crucial factor. Swimming and diving in deep water is enjoyed by few but feared by many.

A prospective diver must be as comfortable in deep water as in shallow. A healthy, supple and lean built is always an advantage for a diver.
