Dom Harvey’s double take on Skinny Dip

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Dom Harvey will take the lead in The Edge's two attempts at breaking the Guinness World Record for the greatest number of people skinny dipping at a single venue.

Harvey's Breakfast co-hosts, Mike Puru and Jay-Jay Feeney will attend one attempt each, but Harvey, who's not afraid to get nude with over 400 people will wave the flag for them all at both attempts.

The first attempt will take place this Saturday, 1 December, at 2pm at Sumner Beach, Christchurch.  They need 414 people to beat the current record of 413 people that was achieved in Llangennith, South Wales in June 2011.

If the South Island can't break the current record then it's the North Island's turn this Sunday, 2 December, at 2pm at Harrison's Cut, Papamoa Beach, Tauranga.

"We've got all the Guinness World Record paper work and logistics in place, we just need those keen to get naked and dip with us to their waist down to Sumner and Harrison's Cut," says Dom Harvey.

"I'm looking forward to seeing who's more game, the South or North Islanders."

As an added incentive, The Edge has $1,000 to give to one lucky skinny dipper at each location, thanks to Plumb In Bathrooms.

Intercity who are providing transport from Auckland, Hamilton and Rotoura to the Tauranga attempt have already filled the Auckland bus.

Anyone can participate in breaking the World Record but The Edge will have a participation waiver for all to sign and anyone under 16 will need a guardian present. Participants can pre-register now at or arrive on site by 1:30pm this Saturday or Sunday.
