Images from the infamous Unox Nieuwjaarsduik – Polar Bear Plunge – 2014. This year saw a record number of 10.000 divers hitting the cold 7 degree water (44°F) of the North Sea in the beach town of Scheveningen. For the third year in a row the event sold out, 45 minutes before the start at 12:00.
Overall 45.000 people participated in various New Years dives all over the Netherlands. A crazy but very fun tradition.
