planking the plunge


Leisure Dive by Thrillist

Because planking’s soooo played out

Because being “extreme” and relaxation shouldn’t only coexist next to the words “nacho cheese”, Leisure Dive’s a new rage created by a handful of friends collectively “dedicated to chilling out poolside, with a beverage, and in mid-air…and the attitude that surrounds it”, accepting submissions from anyone who “by definition…likes to jump off things and just chill”. Some successes thus far:


John, Amagansett – What, John, not willing to part with those Bluchers?


Spencer, San Diego – Ommmygod I’m so leisurely.

“SundayMorning Dive”

Michel, East Hampton – “Area Man Soaks Paper, Self”

They also sell a handful of merch, from hats, to mousepads, to aprons, because even the extreme need something to wipe their nacho cheese on.
