The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2010 is back in the sport's birthplace 'Mana' and 'pono', power and balance – these old Hawaiian principles were crucial when lele kawa, diving off cliffs, was born on the islands in the midst of the Pacific back in the 18th century. They are principles that have been upheld and are today prerequisites for the sport of high diving. It was from a rock made of lava that the last independent chief of Maui, King Kahekili, jumped in the late 1700s. The site of Kahekili's Leap has ever since then been regarded as the birthplace of the majestic sport of cliff diving.
