Swing Jumps: The Adrenaline-Pumping Alternative

Swing jumps, an alternative to traditional bungee jumping, offer a unique adrenaline spike. With a different method of jumping and rope arrangement, swing jumps offer a thrilling swinging motion following the initial free fall, similar to the sensation of a bungee jump.

Bungee swing is an extreme activity that is usually carried out by jumpers. It is an experience very similar in excitement to bungee jumping, but unlike bungee jumping, where you jump forward (as in a head jump), in swing, you jump backward, with your back towards the jump.

Watch the video Swing in the Jordan River.

The Mechanics of Swing Jumps

Swing jumps involve a distinct jumping technique compared to traditional bungee jumping. The rope setup used in swing jumps consists of a static rope or cable attached to the jumper’s harness and anchored to a fixed point, allowing the jumper to swing back and forth like a pendulum instead of bouncing back.

Jumpers can amplify the thrill of a swing jump by launching with a powerful backward swing, intensifying the swinging motion and injecting an extra dose of adrenaline into the experience.

In the bungee jump, where the jump is from the point of departure down in a straight line. In the swing jump, the jump line circles under the bridge while falling, and a swing is created. A swing jump is achieved by the fact that the ropes to which the jumper is attached pass from one side of the bridge and are pulled under it to the other side of the jumper. Since the jumper is attached to the ropes, there is initially a fall in a straight line downwards, but immediately when the jumper reaches the rope’s end. It can be said that the adrenaline level of this activity is higher than abseiling and is suitable for those who are ready for excitement.

A strong pendulum movement is created on the other side of the bridge, and this movement is getting weaker as a result of gravity. The wider the bridge, the stronger the movement of the pendulum.

Increasing the Thrill

Swing jump enthusiasts can experiment with different techniques to make the experience even more thrilling. By increasing the height or distance of the jump from a tall structure, maintaining a tall posture, and jumping off the swing at the farthest back point, jumpers can achieve a more balanced jumping force and a greater adrenaline rush.

The jumper can increase the movement by jumping with a strong backward swing. As you saw in the video, a soft swing jump can also be performed when, instead of a jump, a short slide is performed with a short rope that ends a few meters below the bridge.

At a certain point, the surfer leaves his hands from holding the surfing rope and falls into the swing, which reduces the intensity of the fall and the fear but also weakens the intensity of the experience and the movement of the pendulum.

Safety remains a top priority in adventure sports. Although there is no specific maximum height for swing jumps, adhering to guidelines and restrictions set by the swing jump operator is key to a safe and exciting experience.

Bungee jumping at the Jordan River

The Jordan River, a significant waterway in Israel, is another thrilling bungee jumping location. As one of the most important rivers in the region, it offers a unique backdrop for an adrenaline-pumping bungee jump. The river’s flow and the surrounding lush greenery add to the overall experience, making it a must-visit spot for bungee jumping enthusiasts.

Essential Gear for the Ultimate Bungee Experience

It is highly recommended to use heavily padded harnesses or full-body harnesses, also with dynamic ropes and not static ropes, to soften the strength of the forces that the jumper will absorb.

The right gear is a prerequisite for a safe and enjoyable bungee jumping experience. Proper harnesses and correct types of rope are key to your safety during the leap.

Harnesses and Safety

Harnesses play a critical role in maintaining safety during bungee jumping. Heavily padded or full-body harnesses are recommended for maximum comfort and security. Some of the top-rated harnesses suitable for bungee jumping include the Trident Bungee Harness, VR Bungee Harness, and VR Full Body Bungee Trampoline Harness.

To enhance safety, consider the following features for bungee jumping:

  • Ankle harnesses
  • Robust tie-off structures
  • Adjustable straps for comfort
  • Routine maintenance and replacement of bungee cords

These elements contribute to a secure and thrilling bungee jumping experience.

Dynamic Ropes vs. Static Ropes

Understanding the differences between dynamic and static ropes is essential for bungee jumping. Dynamic ropes are designed to stretch and absorb the energy from a sudden load, providing a cushioning effect. Static ropes, however, do not stretch under heavy loads and lack the same level of shock absorption.

Dynamic ropes, the safer choice for bungee jumping, help to minimize the risk of injury from the impact. Their elastic nature eases the jump, reducing the strain on the jumper’s body.
