Take a Polar Bare Plunge

One-button bathing suits welcome at "Nude" Year's Day swim in South Surrey.

BRR…ring in the “Nude” Year with the Skinnydipper Recreation Club and Surrey’s United Naturists (SUN) when Surrey’s naturist and nudist groups co-host the eight-annual Polar Bare Plunge on “Nude” Year’s Day, 2014 at the clothing-optional Crescent Rock Beach in South Surrey.

The charity swim will be held at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1 in the chilly waters of Boundary Bay directly in front of the giant Crescent Rock boulder, south of Crescent Beach past the 101 Steps elevated walkway located at the west end of 24 Ave. in south Surrey.

Registration begins at noon.

Entry is free but organizers ask supporters and spectators to bring cash donations to benefit the War Amps PLAYSAFE and CHAMPS childhood amputee programs, which the highlight the danger to pedestrians trespassing on the adjacent BNSF railway. (BNSF Police will likely attend, ticketing people walking on the train tracks to ensure public safety.)

Your one-button bathing suit is the usual attire for this clothing-optional swim, but Santa hats, fake antlers, body paint and limited festive garments are appreciated – keeping in mind that less is often more. Foot protection, including secured sandals or aquatic shoes are highly recommended.
