Royal Cornwall Show World Record

On Friday 8 June, at the Royal Cornwall Show, the world's high flying Professor Splash achieved a death defying World Record from 30ft dive into just 12 inches of the freshest Trewithen Dairy milk. 

American Darren Taylor is the talent behind Professor Splash. With more than 25 years of professional high diving experience, he has travelled the world breaking world records and entertaining millions. 

Professor Splash holds eight world records in five countries (Italy, Spain, Germany, Japan, and the US) and is considered the greatest stunt diver in the world. He is currently on record in both the Guinness Book of World Records and Ripley's 2009 Edition.

Trewithen is a pioneering family business and is the third largest direct milk buyer in Cornwall, with direct supplies from 20 local farms. 

Professor Splash said: "I've been diving into water for over 25 years but I've never hurtled into milk before - what a thrill, what a rush! 

"There is a difference in the density of milk so I took this into very serious consideration. It was seriously 'pow'! 

"And the experience of diving into Cornish milk was amazing.  It was all a bit touch and go on the wind front with these crazy storms but yeh, we DID it."

Founder of Trewithen Dairy Bill Clarke said: "Oh my goodness!  All I can say is what a guy.  And now we have a joint Trewithen Dairy/Professor Splash world record. 

"I can tell you, everyone at the dairy is so, so excited." 

Royal Cornwall Show secretary, Christopher Riddle, is sure Professor Splash's world record attempt will generate massive interest: "This has been a great addition to a main ring programme that was already packed with action.  

"It's been the perfect mixture of business and entertainment – and there's plenty of both going on at the show."
