Extreme jacuzziing, possibly the stupidest extreme sport ever

Do you love adventure and hot tubs, and let’s face it who doesn’t? But put them together and it seems like a lot of work. How does the jacuzzi get down there? How does it get back up? It seems like there would be a lot of clean up involved… but I digress. The 25-member team has been enjoying their crazy jacuzzi antics for some 10 years now in locations that include: 39m off the side of the 189m Gueuroz Bridge (title shot) and the summit of Mt Blanc.

Back to the set up, clean up and the grunt work involved in pulling off such a stunt: it was the culmination of 2500 hours of planning (the Swiss are nothing if not prepared) and the construction of the makeshift hot tub took 6 hours. Once they had it set up, hot water had to be piped down from a second hot tub that sat on the bridge (they used a gas-powered heater on the platform to keep it warm).
