The man

The jungle behind him, the deep glistening blue sea far beneath him. Imitating the locals, Boris Grundl jumps from the rock face, past the waterfall rushing into the lagoon, diving into the crystal-clear water, going ever higher and higher.

One last time he’s jumping. This time, from as high up as possible.
