BRAVE Birdman fundraisers battled strong winds in order to raise money for their chosen charities.

There were a number of delays as the wind speed soared to a level making it dangerous for participants to jump from the 35ft high platform. Joel Hicks, dressed as comic superhero ‘Kick-Ass’, was nearly blown off the pier as the red car he was carrying caught a strong gust of wind, knocking him onto his back.

Otherwise, the wind averaged a healthy 13-14 knots.

A bride and groom, superheroes, and ET were all in attendance at the event, as were many more.

Watch them talk about their causes and admire their creative outfits in our video.
