BRAVE Olivia Jones and Lani Ashford shun their advent chocolates in favour of a daily bracing dip in the sea.
Plymouth University students Olivia, 21, left, and Lani, 24, are doing a challenge to swim together every day until December 25 at Woolacombe Beach in North Devon.
They say their daily dip gives them a better buzz than coffee.
The pair have been donning Santa hats for the festive fun which will end on Christmas.
Lani from Woolacombe, Devon, and Olivia from Taunton, Somerset, braved the 7ºC weather and chilly tides.
They swam at Woolacombe Beach in North Devon ahead of a yellow weather warning for much of the country.
