In 2016, BigAirBag® introduced Street Diving during the Urban Sports Week in Amsterdam. Holland was shocked about the popularity of Street Diving and a new sport was born. 18 talented athletes from an array of extreme sports participated. There were appearances from freestyle skiers, snowboarders, cliff divers, free runners, gymnasts and everything in between. The athletes showcased their best tricks, and Cristhian van Schijndel won the first Street Diving competition and took home a sponsorship deal from BigAirBag®.
