Nudist Community Flashers

Cove News   

A Word from Cypress Cove’s General Manager

Nude-A-Palooza: A Decade of Music, Community, and Compassion

As the General Manager of Cypress Cove Nudist Resort in Central Florida, I am thrilled to share the remarkable success of our annual event, Nude-A-Palooza. This one-day tribute concert series, dedicated to celebrating the joy of music and community, has consistently proven its philanthropic power year after year.

The two most recent installments of Nude-A-Palooza were particularly heartwarming, as we had the privilege of contributing to a cause close to our hearts—the Florida Cancer Specialist Foundation. This year, together, with the collective efforts of our generous guests, donors, and the welcoming residents of Cypress Cove, we raised an impressive $22,157.

However, this year's accomplishment is not a standalone success; it is part of a journey that began in 2008. Since its inception, Nude-A-Palooza has been instrumental in channeling support to various charitable organizations, raising an awe-inspiring total of $332,240. This incredible sum embodies the compassion, unity, and philanthropic spirit that are at the heart of Nude-A-Palooza.

We owe our deepest gratitude to the many people who have made this remarkable achievement possible. Our cherished guests, who travel from near and far, bring with them not only their love for music but also their unwavering commitment to making a difference. We are thankful to our generous donors whose contributions have consistently fueled the success of this event and have touched the lives of countless individuals.

Equally deserving of our appreciation are the residents of Cypress Cove. We recognize the unique synergy that comes from welcoming an event like Nude-A-Palooza into our own backyard. Your open hearts and warm embrace of this tradition have helped build a bridge between our community and the causes we hold dear.

Let's not forget the dedicated Cypress Cove teams who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make Nude-A-Palooza a reality. Countless hours are spent planning, organizing, and ensuring the smooth operation of this event, and their commitment is truly inspiring.

In addition to the incredible generosity of our guests, donors, and the Cypress Cove community, I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to a few remarkable contributors. Bare Necessities, for their outstanding support, gifted us a week-long cruise that added a truly unforgettable dimension to our fundraising efforts. SouthState Bank, your amazing gift basket was a delightful surprise that added joy to our event.

The Spa Oasis at Cypress Cove, Nature Hair, and Cloudpoint Hospitality also deserve special recognition for their donations to our raffle, which not only enhanced the event's excitement but also enriched the lives of those who participated. Your kindness and commitment to our cause have touched our hearts deeply, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in creating a brighter future for our chosen charities. 

As we celebrate a decade of giving through Nude-A-Palooza, we are reminded of the positive change that can be achieved when we come together as a community. This event showcases the transformative power of music, love, and unity, and we are excited to continue this remarkable journey in the years to come.

Thank you to all who have been a part of this incredible endeavor. Your contributions, in all forms, have not only made Nude-A-Palooza a success but have also made a profound impact on those in need. Together, we have proven that music, charity, and the spirit of giving can truly change lives.

Peter Sewall
General Manager

Celebrating the Spooktacular Success of the Haunted Hayride!

As the crisp autumn air settled in, our spirited community came together for a spine-tingling adventure on the recent Haunted Hayride. It was an event to remember, and we're thrilled to share the thrilling highlights with you all!

The Haunted Hayride, a bewitching journey through our residential area, showcased the incredible talents of our residents. In the spirit of Halloween, they went all out, transforming their homes into eerie, enchanting spectacles. To make things even more exciting, we announced a tantalizing prize – a Boos Basket valued at $350 – for the most haunted house! And boy, did our residents rise to the challenge.

This year, we had three loads of riders, ensuring that everyone had a chance to experience the spooky wonders on display. It's safe to say that there were plenty of hair-raising moments and heart-pounding surprises throughout the night.

A massive round of applause goes out to the wonderful volunteers from our community who contributed their time and talent as "Scare-actors." Your dedication to bringing the spooky magic to life did not go unnoticed, and we sincerely thank you for making the Haunted Hayride an unforgettable experience.

But the heart of this event was our incredible residents, who embraced the Halloween spirit with open arms. Their creativity and ingenuity were on full display, turning our neighborhood into a ghostly wonderland. The way they incorporated the hayride participants into the scares and surprises was nothing short of phenomenal.

Now, let's give a bone-chilling congratulations to the winners of the Residential Haunted Illuminations Spectacle contest – Frank and Joann from House Number 1! Their spooky, yet imaginative setup featuring a witch swooping across the graveyard left everyone in awe. Not only did they create a breathtaking display, but they also interacted with our hayride participants, sending shivers down their spines and making this year's event an absolute hit.

In recognition of their incredible effort, Frank and Joann will be taking home the coveted Boos Basket valued at $350. A prize well-deserved!


We couldn't be prouder of our community, and we hope that this event brought a touch of magic to your Halloween season. Thanks to everyone who participated and made the Haunted Hayride a night to remember. We're already looking forward to next year's spine-tingling adventure!

Until next time, check out these pictures, stay spirited and spooktacular!

That's why we're excited to bring you this informative content in this newsletter, dedicated to helping you fully embrace the nudist lifestyle, no matter where you are. Whether you're looking for unique spots to shed your clothes, tips to transform your yard or apartment patio into a nude-sunbathing haven, advice on nude boating and hiking, or even guidance on hosting nudist house parties and collaborating with local attractions for nude nights – we've got you covered. Stay tuned for expert insights and inspiration on how to be a nudist, no matter where your journey takes you.


Creating Your Private Nudist Oasis: Easy Ways to Make Your Yard or Apartment Patio Nude-Sunbathing-Friendly

Have you ever longed for the freedom of sunbathing in the nude, right in the comfort of your own space? We're here to tell you that it's entirely possible to create a private nudist oasis in your yard or apartment patio. Whether you have a spacious backyard or a cozy balcony, we've got easy, practical tips to help you transform your outdoor space into a tranquil retreat where you can soak up the sun without a care in the world. In this article, we'll explore everything from setting up the perfect nudist-friendly environment to ensuring your privacy, so you can fully embrace the nudist lifestyle from the convenience of your own home. Let's get started on your journey to comfortable and carefree nude sunbathing.

Step 1: Establishing the Right Atmosphere

Creating a nudist-friendly space starts with the ambiance. Consider these essential elements:

  1. Privacy: Ensure that your area is shielded from prying eyes. Use tall plants, fences, or partitions to create a secluded environment. You might also explore outdoor curtains or bamboo screens for added privacy.

  2. Comfortable Seating: Invest in comfortable outdoor furniture. Loungers, hammocks, or even a simple beach towel can be your best friends during sunbathing sessions.

  3. Natural Elements: Add some natural elements like potted plants, flowers, or even a small water feature to create a serene and aesthetically pleasing environment.

  4. Shade Options: While sunbathing is delightful, having some shade is essential. Consider a parasol or outdoor umbrella to protect yourself from harsh sunlight.

Step 2: Legal and Community Considerations

Before baring it all, it's crucial to be aware of local laws and community guidelines. Not all areas permit public nudity, so make sure you're in compliance with local regulations and respectful of your neighbors.

Step 3: Personal Comfort and Convenience

To make your nudist experience truly relaxing, consider the following:

  1. Storage: Keep necessities like sunscreen, water, and towels within easy reach to avoid unnecessary clothing during your sunbathing session.

  2. Outdoor Shower: Install a simple outdoor shower or hose for a quick rinse before and after sunbathing.

  3. Nude Etiquette: If you're in an apartment building, be mindful of any rules and regulations in your lease agreement. Ensure that your nudist lifestyle does not infringe on the comfort of your neighbors.

Step 4: Time and Routine

Develop a routine for your nude sunbathing. Whether it's early morning, late afternoon, or the weekend, having a consistent schedule will help you get the most out of your nudist time.

Step 5: Confidence and Mindfulness

Finally, remember that embracing the nudist lifestyle is all about confidence and mindfulness. You're in control of your environment and your comfort. Be confident in your choices, and be mindful of how this lifestyle positively impacts your well-being.

With these easy steps, you can transform your yard or apartment patio into a nude sunbathing haven. Enjoy the liberating experience of feeling the sun and breeze on your skin while being in your own private paradise. Happy nudist sunbathing!
