There are also other items of safety equipment that could prove helpful, like a helmet. Protecting your head in case of an accident while speeding recovery time after an injury may help speed recovery process up.

Bungee jumping’s precise roots remain unknown, although it’s thought to have its origins in an ancient manhood ritual known as ‘land diving’ in Pacific Islands. Land diving was designed as an emotional test designed to test young men’s courage by asking them to jump off a wooden stand as high as 80 feet with only vine leaves tied around their ankles for support.

Select a reliable bungee operation with experienced, well-trained staff in an enjoyable, safe, and relaxing atmosphere. It may also help to find an accessible location. Finally, it is a good idea for the jumper to allow ample time for familiarization before embarking on their jump.


Rafting is a recreational activity where participants raft down a river or body of water, using teamwork to navigate safely through it. While it can be extremely enjoyable, safe navigation requires teamwork from everyone onboard the raft.
