There's grace & beauty in diving that's impressive to witness in person. Perhaps even more impressive than that are the moments of focus, determination, and clarity in a diver's body, mind, and expression when they're on the board. To the human eye, dives appear fluid & graceful. In reality, though, most consist of an immaculately choreographed progression of awkward, tense, and violent actions which, together, create the illusion of grace. We found a great deal of humanity in those isolated moments.
