Calling all local sunrise and beach lovers: Cold Nips has officially made its way to Mandurah.

The community movement co-founded by friends Jian Wong Yen and Ryan Linton has been a favourite early Wednesday morning activity for hundreds of Perth folk since it began in 2019 and after many pleas from Peel dippers, Mandurah is now a permanent Cold Nips location.

“As of last week we had our first dip in the area, but officially as of this week we are going to be doing every Wednesday down in Mandurah. This will be the second-ever permanent location Cold Nips has had,” Mr Wong Yen said.

“It’s a direction we have wanted to head in for a while now but we have been waiting for the right time and the right people to come in to the Cold Nips life.

“Then we got hit up by a young legend from Mandurah, Dylan O’Brien, who said there was a buzz and a crowd down here that he thought would get around the movement and it landed well on this year to start it up.”

The Cold Nips crew will alternate between four beaches around Peel each week, with the locations dropping on their Instagram page earlier on in the week.

The duo is encouraging everyone who has ever been curious about Cold Nips to give it a go at their next meet up.

“If you’ve been thinking about it, I would 100 per cent recommend giving it a try once and seeing what it can do for you. There is a lot to gain in terms of community connection and maybe a bit of self-awareness as well,” Mr Linton said.

“We always say there’s a secret recipe to these early morning dips but we will let you feel and figure it out yourself.”

The next Mandurah location will be at Falcon Beach and dippers are to arrive at 5.45am.
