"Just BUNGY jumped for the 1st time!!" he wrote on his Facebook page along with a new TwitVid. "I LOVE NEW ZEALAND!" Justin is shown standing on a ledge with his arms held out to his sides. The instructor then holds the bungy cord taut while the Canadian singer leans back.
Justin's pals are cheering him on and counting down to the big fall. The teen sensation seems ready to go with zero hesitation. His onlookers psych him out a few times, but finally the instructor lets go and Justin falls back into air and over the water.
Bungy originated in New Zealand and uses all rubber cords, as opposed to bungee, which involves shock cords and is more popular in North America. With bungy jumping, thrill-seekers get a smoother ride and fall at a lower velocity than bungee jumping, which has more free fall and longer hang time on rebounds.
Justin clearly likes to try new things. During his recent visit to Japan, he ate things without knowing what they were, and now the singer has bungy jumped for the first time ever. Would you do what Justin did? Or is the thought of free falling hundreds of feet in the air too crazy for you?
