Guide to our weekly swims

Please note we encourage swimmers to be able to swim 1km before attending. TIP: do swim squads in the pool to prepare yourself for these sessions!

Surf Skills & Fitness

Days: Saturday and Sunday
Time: Saturday 8am & Sunday 10am (starts March 5)
Duration: 1 hour (+)
Experience: All standards with Rookies advised you NEED to be able to swim 500 metres(+) non-stop freestyle for this session as we will swim 1km - 3km. Visit Pool Squads if you cannot do this & consider a 1 on 1 lesson!

We concentrate on surf skills going in/ out through the surf &/ or along the beach when the ocean is flat. Faster swimmers will go further in this session swimming further out each time than the slower swimmers - this keeps the group within sight of each other. Faster swimmers chase the slower swimmers on the way back to the beach so it's a chance for everyone to be a winner!  

Ocean Endurance & Surf Skills

Duration: 2 hours Saturday

On both days we do longer intervals for 1 hour with all swimmers as above then:
- Saturday we do a 2nd hour including a longer non-stop swim when the ocean is flat or swim down to South Bondi to chase waves when the surf is pumping! It's a great session & if you are confident going for 1 hour come & have a crack at the 2 hours when you feel ready!
