Ocean Swimming in the Central Coast
There are a sooo many options to ocean swim on the Central Coast of NSW! Currently offered at Cabbage Tree Bay, Norah Head and The Haven, Terrigal Beach. However, depending on your swim ability and what you want to focus on, there are many beaches with surf breaks where we can arrange to conduct your private surf swim lessons to get you your salty fix all whilst you learn to navigate the surf and perfect your body surfing!
Open Water swimming is becoming the go-to form of exercise especially during the current pandemic (best form of social but socially distant activity!) but also because of growing media exposing the benefits of thalassotherapy (swimming in salty ocean water) and also cold water swimming for mental and physical wellbeing.
These sessions are ideal for beginner ocean swimmers as they are held in less surf exposed locations and a favoured choice for swimmers wanting the challenge and fitness that moving water can offer (as opposed to flat water and pools). Also a perfect training option for triathletes looking to build their navigation skills in open water environments for race practice.
A minimum of 500 metres of continuous freestyle is required to safely and confidently join these sessions.
Timetable and bookings will become available soon! In the meantime please register your interest so we can let you know as soon as these sessions become available.
