The Waikuku Beach Surf Life Saving Club’s annual mid-winter dip proved a hot ticket at Waikuku Beach last Sunday morning.
Hardy souls turned out for the popular Waikuku Beach Invigorator event, dressed in all manner of costumes, from casual day wear to a beekeeper’s protective clothing and even skimpy “budgie smugglers”.
They all made a mad dash across the sand into the chilly surf just for the fun of it.
Afterwards, they were treated to a hot shower, some hot soup, or sausages wrapped in bread, to recover from the cold winter chill.
