WORLD'S FIRST BUNGEE JUMP
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's first bungee jump?

Bungee jumping started about 1,500 years ago in the Pentecost Islands where men would leap from a tree with a vine attached to their ankles as a rite-of-passage.

According to legend the world's first bungee jump was performed by a woman fleeing her husband. She climbed up a banyan tree, tied a vine around her ankles and leapt off a cliff.

The first modern day bungee jump was performed by Alan Weston, David Kirke, Tim Hunt, and Simon Keeling, who were the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club.

On April 01 1979 they jumped from the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, England in the world's first bungee jump, creating a new extreme sport in the process.
