The Naked Fig Skinny Dip!
Seven reasons to get NAKED with us on March 30th…
1) Put Perth on the map and into the Guinness book of records for the world’s biggest skinny dip! (Spain holds the current record and we can’t let them keep it!)
2) Raise awareness and funds for the Butterfly Foundation - working on the prevention, treatment and support for those effected by eating disorders & negative body image
3) Celebrate you and your body exactly the way it is! Celebrate diversity and health!
4) It feels good to skinny dip – seriously, how long has it been since you last had a nudie swim?
5) Get naked in public without being arrested...
6) Get a naked skinny dip sarong to wrap around yourself as you head to the beach – and keep it forever!
7) Meet our inspirational ambassador Jessica Smith - paralympian & award-winning spokeswoman for positive body image!

Promoting the message “celebrate every body”, the event primarily aims to raise awareness and funds for the Butterfly Foundation. All profits generated from the day will go to Butterfly: A foundation committed to raising awareness about eating disorders and providing support to anyone affected by eating disorders and negative body image. In a society where so much focus is put on how we look and the size and shape that we are, the Butterfly Foundation strives to change this perception as well as what is promoted in health policy and practice. We also hope to break a Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s biggest skinny dip!
Online registrations are available until Saturday 29th March 2pm. If you miss out online, late entries will be available from 800am - 930am on the day. You must be 18 plus to participate.

How to get here!
We encourage all participants to use public transport to arrive at the event. From Claremont or Swanbourne train stations the 102 bus takes passengers right up to Marine Parade. Plan your way with Transperth - http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/Home/JourneyPlanner.aspx
Event parking has been organised at Challenge Stadium in Mount Claremont. There will be a $5 parking fee, so don’t forget to bring some loose change on the day! Private busses will be running from Challenge Stadium to the Naked Fig in rotation from 800am onwards, and will have a Fig Skinny Dip sign in the front window.
Skinny Dippers are also welcome to ride their bicycles to the event, please remember to bring your bike lock along for security.
Thanks to the users of North Swanbourne Beach for letting us borrow your beach for the event!
