The Dive Girl crew won a special place in my heart the day they antagonized the DIR guys by releasing their Doing It Wrong “Stroke” T-Shirt. I’ve been trying to find one for myself ever since. So, it was with great joy that I realized that the Dive Girl herself, Louise Trewavas, reclaimed her extreme ironing record last month by ironing a shirt at 452 feet.
The extreme ironing underwater record was first set by the 39-year-old Londoner in 2003 with an impressive display of linen-pressing at 100m. Last month, however, Teignmouth-based diver John Rudolph challenged for the title by ironing a T-shirt on a 129m dive.
Not to be out-laundered, Louise Trewavas sank to new depths to reclaim her title. â€œRecords are there to be broken, but the boys will have to do better than that if they want to beat me. Bring it on,â€ Louise says.
