Open Water Swimming Coaching
Open water swimming coaching and guided swims at Bournemouth’s beautiful beaches, from qualified coaches, for all abilities.
For the love of swimming
From first time sea swimmers to triathletes and endurance swimmers, we want to help you achieve your aims, gain confidence and improve your open water swimming. Whatever your swimming aspirations, our experienced and professional coaches are here to fine tune your open water skills and help you get there. For fitness, for fun, for competitions, for mental health, we are passionate about you getting the best from your sea swimming experience.
Open water Swimming sessions and programmes
From confidence practices and acclimatisation for beginners, through to buoy turns and racing starts for competitors, we can cover all aspects of open water/sea swimming – all whilst having a firm foundation and focus on swimming technique, with your stroke at the core.
A one-off 2 hour session that will give you a solid grounding on starting to swim in the sea. Once completed you can join our social swim pod and take part in social swims and organised Wave 23 swims.
Have the sole attention of your coach and work towards what you want to achieve. You may be new to sea swimming or wanting to improve something about your stroke, speed or endurance; these bespoke sessions are for all abilities and are also open to juniors.
Develop skills alongside others in our regular group coaching sessions. Grouped according to ability, we cover swimming technique, open water/race skills and aim to develop your abilities with distance and pace. Join other like-minded swimmers at our weekly sessions in the sea at Southbourne.
Over the winter months maintain your swimming technique, practice some sea swimming skills and get ready to be back in the open water with our weekly “pool to Pier to Pier” workshop sessions, held in a swimming pool in Southbourne on Thursday evenings.
We meet regularly, several mornings a week, for a social swim at Southbourne beach near Bistro on the Beach. We’re a friendly bunch – get in touch to find out about joining us.
We run sunrise and sunset swims, night swims and other distance swims such as pier to pier swims. Contact us to find out about our events.
