This wild sport is called Fierljeppen (there are several spelling variations) and it involves a pole, 8-13 metres long, with a flat plate at the bottom. Jumpers sprint to the pole, grab it, climb to the top while trying to control its movement, and try to land on the bed of sand across the water. If they don’t think they’ll make it, they bail into the water.
