It is that time of year again where the New Year’s resolutions come out and some great goals are put into place… Don’t get us wrong… we LOVE all of these goals and we want EVERYONE to achieve ALL that they are capable of and MORE but… some people often forget that there is no quick fix when it comes to building a strong stroke and enhancing your swimming endurance. It is a common occurrence to have new clients book a session expecting to perfect their stroke and magically be able to swim long distances effortlessly after an hour. Although all our coaches are AMAZING, we do not have a MAGIC WAND  we can wave to fix your stroke overnight. It takes patience, perseverance and practice to build your style in the pool, then dedication and passion will help maintain your stamina and continue to improve! There is no better time than to buckle down and put in the effort than NOW!

Commit to your next pool or ocean session right now and check 2018’s resolutions off your list.

There is an option to do a 2.1km, 1km, and 4km Beach Run and Nipper Challenge for the kids

Palm Beach-Whale Beach
Sunday 28th January, 2018

Palm to Whale beach is a great journey swim, blue ribbon swim on the ocean events calendar! It is one of the oldest running ocean swim events and one of Jo Mermaid favourites swim for its iconic backgrounds and for the challenge when its swell is up. The distance is 2.5 – 2.8 km, it is known as THE BIG SWIM because it is BIG, conditions vary from dead calm to testing south-easterly or uncomfortable nor easter’s which can arrive early in summer with swells from all directions making for challenging swimming when you breathe to the left. It is a huge achievement to complete. So this is definitely one you need to train for both in the surf and the pool! Feel free to email us if you want some more information on how to train for a big event like this.
