The 2012 edition of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series promises to be the best yet - follow it all on the new (and improved)!

With seven competitions across three continents, Europe, North America and Asia, the 2012 World Series brings together the very best in high diving talent who will, for the first time ever, face off in head-to-head competition from heights of 27 metres plus.

After a stunning season last year, 2011 champion Gary Hunt will be pitted against the likes of the returning Orlando Duque, Artem Silchenko, Michal Navratil and the pick of the new cliff divers, including the winner of the 2012 qualification, David Colturi, and Olympian Blake Aldridge.

A total of 11 ‘fixed’ tour divers will compete on this year’s circuit – click here to find out more about each – and there will be up to three wildcards invited per competition.

You may have noticed already that has been given a brand new look for this year and our homage to high diving will have exclusive news, interviews, features, photos and videos from all the stops. Add it to your favourites and bookmark for all the latest in the build-up.

The first competition takes place on the French island of Corsica on June 23 - stock up on the suncream and dig out your favourite pair of sunglasses, it's going to be a hot one!
