The latest social media trend sweeping the internet sees users jumping off the surface of a body of water without making a splash. More than 2,000 people have already uploaded their attempts at the Splash Challenge online. The trend sees users stand on a ledge with their backs facing a body of water - including swimming pools, ponds and fountains.

The jumpers then shift their weight to push themselves off from the ground.

The aim is to reach backward, usually with their feet, and touch the surface of the water without making a splash before landing safely back on the ledge.

Others have already experimented by adding extras to their attempts including back flips, hand stands and the use of props such as scooters.

Thousands of posts have been shared on Instagram and Tik Tok which have left others baffled and concerned in equal measure.

One user, @prestonaxerogers, wrote: 'People are going to hurt themselves trying this challenge.'


And another, @quincya08, said: 'I'd hit my face on the edge for sure.'

But others were more supportive, including @_jibj_ who wrote: 'This is unreal.' 

With @rivetingtalechap adding: 'Proving gravity does not exist one step at a time.'
