Boracay Trip 2014 (Two) Ariel's Point

2nd – 7th March 2014


Day 3 of our Boracay trip!
Had to make a booking for Ariel's Point
a day in advance at BBC (Boracay Beach Club)
located close to Station 1.
Placed a 1000php as deposit and another 1000php on the day itself.

Us, ready to embark on Project YOLO
We've been high on the thoughts of cliff jumping at Ariel's Point
& It was finally happening!!

Making our way to the boat.
A 45 Mins ride on the "Party Boat"
Unlimited booze for everyone onboard the boat!
& They said, "The more you drink, the higher you jump"

Be prepared to get wet to get to the boat!

People were already leaping and jumping off different heights
Most were being cheered on after their jumps
Some were hesitant and stoned at the planks

There are 3 diving boards of different heights,
5 meters, 10 meters and 15 meters.




There are white round platforms to jump from as well.
The white round platforms were a mere 1 to 3 meters in height.

From 11am to 430pm,
Visitors to Ariel's Point can jump AS MANY TIMES AS THEY LIKE

20140304_123719

The random shots i took of people doing their jumps.




20140304_124601

& thats A attempting the 5 meters.




20140304_125006

& thats me at the 5m.
AS YOU CAN SEE,
We can never trust IMPORTANT MOMENTS to be captured perfectly
I can see your thumbkins HAHAHA




20140304_125008
OK CAN! THANKS hahahaha





20140304_130140

While I took marvellous pictures





Vid of him doing the 10m jump!




Me @ 5m




Then 10m.




 


I did multiple 5m jumps to get the hang of it.
Tried the 10m and it didn't felt that bad.



Until I experienced a bad landing from one of my 10m jump.
Trick is,
You'll have to keep your body super straight and leap of the boards with one feet out
keep your toes pointed upon hitting the water.


But SOMEHOW, in mid air,
Your body just freaks at times
I landed in the water with my thighs apart and SMACK!
The impact resulted in water bruises from my thigh to my shin



20140304_134753


It was sore but it didn't look that bad.


With the Ariel's point trip coming to an end,
We were like "I don't think I'm gonna attempt the 15 metres"
"LOOK AT THAT!! How are we going to jump from 15METERS?!"
But we completely contradict ourselves and went like
 "IF WE DON'T DO IT WE ACCOMPLISH NOTHING!!!"


We stood by the boards at the last 15 mins,
contemplating whether or not to jump.

Random people were cheering us on
I don't know how and where I got the courage to just GO
I took the lead and leaped.



It felt SOOOO GOOD it was out of the world
A perfect landing and I felt so accomplished.



I came back up and cheered on A to go on and give it a shot.
THAT LAST 15 MINS. . .
WE DID IT! We did the 15m!!!!
We can leave Ariel's Point HAPPY!!!

One can also Snorkel & Kayak @ Ariel's Point
A got stung by a jelly fish while Snorkeling
it was mild but started itching and mini bumps on his arms started appearing.
Whats a YOLO trip without a bit of sting? HAHAHA

My bruise drastically worsened within the day
A's butt cheeks and inner thigh turned purple too.
Didn't bother us much cuz we've already did most of the activities
and the remaining days of our trip was to just bum and relax.




Day 4!
Had our breakfast and enjoyed the view and beach right outside our hotel


20140305_112328

We had Hey! Jude South Beach's hotel Mango Milk Shake all the time
cuz it was that good
