It varies between 3.6 for a required dive and 6.3 for the most difficult dives in the sport currently. The degree of difficulty (DD) is the rating for each dive performed in a competition and is multiplied by the sum of the judges' scores to give the total number of points per dive. Each trick in a high dive adds to the degree of difficulty and the athletes of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series keep pushing the limits of their sport by creating and realising new dives which weren't even considered possible a few years ago.© Red Bull Media House
