Bungee jumping is an adventure sports activity that has become very popular all around the world! Its history begun many years ago from Pentecost island, in the southwest Pacific Ocean, where a native tribe used it as a process to choose its leaders. Boys, at the age of 16, used to climb on wooden 20 m high scaffolds, tie tendrils around their ankles and jump. Most of the boys were getting seriously injured and others even losing their lives. However, those who managed to survive used to become the leaders of the whole tribe.
