Guinness World Record Attempt – The most people extreme ironing underwater

“The latest sport that combines the thrills of an outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt”.


Australia Held the Guinness World Record in the extreme sport of “Underwater Ironing” until March 28th 2011, when a group of 173 divers from the Netherlands outnumbered us.  So we now need to show some national pride and reclaim the record for our Country whilst raising funds for charity.

We are aiming for around 200 divers to iron out the record (so to speak), and show those Dutchies what us Aussies are made of.   So let’s claim our record back….
