New Year's Day means the annual tradition of hopping into the cold pacific sea for a quick afternoon dip.

As usual, the annual swim is a unique way to start off the year with new beginnings.

Obviously, the end of the year is a symbolic way to wrap up old business and start new ventures with a clean slate.

Make sure you have a happy (and very refreshing) new year, everyone.
