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 9am, Sunday 9am & Monday 9am
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 either in the surf or the pool if you are a weaker swimmer!
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!
* Friday 9am squad baby sitting is being organised with our Yummy Mummy group growing each week - fill in contact form & mention baby sitting if this session interests you!
Ocean Endurance & Surf Skills - 2 hours Saturday from 9am
Experience: Experienced ocean swimmers (slow is OK)
We do longer intervals for 1 hour with all swimmers as above then 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!
