Daredevil Teens Jumping off Puente San Antonio Bridge, San Juan
Bridge jumping or bridge diving refers to jumping off a bridge into a body of water below. It is often considered a recreational activity among teens or a daredevil stunt, but it can be dangerous and illegal in some locations. Nonetheless, I took the images below in 2011 of a group of Puerto Rican teens enjoying a jumping session off the Puente San Antonio bridge in San Juan, which spans the Laguna del Condado lagoon.
Bridge Jumping: A Way for Daredevil Teens to Socialize
Bridge jumping can provide an opportunity for daredevil teens to socialize in person. Engaging in recreational activities like bridge jumping often involves group participation, where teens come together, share experiences, and enjoy the thrill of the plunge as a social event. It can be a way to bond with friends, meet new people who have similar interests, and create lasting memories together.
Bridge jumping can be a shared adventure that encourages communication and teamwork among teens. They can offer support and encouragement to each other, share excitement before and after the jumps, and engage in conversations about their experiences. It can provide a common ground for socializing and connecting with other daredevil teens in adventurous activities.
However, it’s important to note that while bridge jumping can promote socialization among teens, safety should always be the top priority. Fortunately, these Puerto Rican teens seemed to know what they were doing. And they had probably jumped off the bridge into the water below many times before.
Daredevil Teens: The Pictures
Lastly, the street photos below show teens meeting on the Puente San Antonio bridge in San Juan (Puerto Rico). They were “hanging out” in person with their friends (e.g., jumping off the bridge into the water below!). These images are a visual reminder of a simpler life before smartphones made teens unhappy.
