It’s the cue, every cottager knows all too well. Either get out of the line of fire or prepare to get wet.
While some prefer to freestyle their way off the dock, more graceful jumpers might opt for a swan dive should the depth permit.
Dock jumping has become a favourite pastime amongst cottagers and in a photo-hungry society that rewards originality, capturing that perfect jump can border on obsessive.
We picked a collection of epic dock jumping photos from our readers that can inspire or challenge you to one-up your neighbour.
