Skinny dipping world record broken in Gisborne

A world record has been broken at a Midway Beach in Gisborne this afternoon, in a successful bid to break the world record for skinny dippers.

The largest number to strip off in one place for a swim stood at 413.

Today that was overtaken by a total of 504 skinny dippers.

Today's feat was part of the BW Camping Festival.

Participant Reagan White says once people got their kit off they were confident enough to show off all of their skills.

"It was amazing to see nude gymnastics at some point, bit of acrobatics going on...

"Yeah there was some hidden talents."

Reagan White says from here, organisers will register the names of all those involved with Guinness World Records to make the attempt an official record.
