OPEN WATER SWIM SEASON

Open water calls us to as an oasis and as we enter we get feels of its vastness.

Learn Open Water Swimming Skills:

Keeping calm and collected – smooth and steady is required to traverse open water. You’ll need efficient technique and mental composure.

Swimming without borders – In open water , you are held captive through the duration. You learn to adjust and endure the environment with conviction.

Take cues from natural surroundings –  Sighting off the landscape keeps your direction, allowing you to stay course. Be wary of veering off path.

Mental adjustment to various environments and depths – At times you glimpse what lives and lies below – other times you charge forward with no indication of where the bottom lies. Don’t get thrown off course, stay focused.

Reading and respond to current –  Learn to swim with current, rising crests, and riding swells.
