It's getting to that wonderful time of year when you put on your wetsuit (or not, for you skins swimmers), and plunge into the sea for that long awaited open water swim.
For all you swimmers out there, what better way to spend a Sunday morning than on the beach with a group of likeminded individuals, being coached on your open water swim technique by the Swim Smooth Wales coaches, followed by a social on the beach (for those of you who don't need to rush off).

If you have already been to our beach squads, you will know how much knowledge you will gain from our friendly, experienced swim coaches.


Get your
wet suit out!

What about valuables, such as car keys?
There's even a beach tent where you can leave your valuables knowing they are safely stored whilst you are enjoying the sea.

Some of the Benefits of Open Water Swimming


Boosts Your Mood

You will see an immediate improvement in your mood following each swim.

For people suffering from depression they will see a gradual reduction in the symptoms

Many swimmers report less coughs and colds than their non-swimming friends.

The stress reaction to the body from the cold water immersion triggers a release in white blood cells, providing a natural boost to your immune system

The mix of exercise and cold water triggers a release of dopamine, the body's feel good hormone.

Sharing this experience with like minded people intensifies the experience.

It's great for your health and wellbeing!

Boosts your Immune System
