TURKEY 5 Day Technical Open Water Swim Camp
The ULTIMATE swim camp for open water swimmers of any level who are looking to improve their speed and efficiency.
ABILITY LEVEL: Suitable for beginners to advanced!
This is the ULTIMATE swim camp for open water swimmers who are looking to improve their speed and efficiency. With Ocean Walker Technique masterclass sessions in the pool taken by creator and world record breaking open water swimmer Adam Walker and our L1 qualified Ocean Walker technique coach Steve Smith. Applying what you learn into the sea swims, which build up as the week progresses to a 3 hour swim (optional). This camp is great for all abilities and the beautiful clear Turkish waters are perfect for getting to know open water better or for continuing your open water training. This course is about technique not pushing you on distance.
- Learn the Ocean Walker technique: Adams own style of front crawl, the swim stroke that gives you speed and efficiency over long distances but uses less energy than the conventional crawl techniques – a must for endurance swimmers…save those shoulders! The first full day is spent learning this technique in the pool which includes full Ocean Walker video analysis. Progress your swimming by perfecting your breathing and sighting skills. Swim effortlessly and efficiently to achieve your long distance swimming goals.
- Sea swims in crystal clear warm waters: With a selection of beautiful open water swimming locations, Turkey has incredible warm, calm and clear sea swimming. As well as swimming from the hotel beach we will take a boat trip to a stunning secluded bay and have lunch following our swim on the boat, stopping off at a local village for some sightseeing. We also take a bus ride through the hills and countryside to a striking bay that looks and feels like a lake by the side of a sleepy cafe that serves freshly baked olive breads, which we enjoy on the jetty after our swim.
- Video analysis: The pool sessions are filmed above and underwater. See how you progress over the week with your technique, Adam will talk you through your progress during the video analysis theory sessions and then following the camp receive your fully analysed footage on email! The perfect tool to continue your training and progress following your time with us.
Adam Walker will help you learn how to focus your mind while swimming in open water. This swim camp is a fun mixture of intensive technique work and open water swimming mixed in. This camp is perfect for all. Whether you are looking to improve technique, have a fun week with a group of like-minded individuals and swim in beautiful warm seas – with Adam Walker there each day coaching and motivating you – it will be a week to remember!
Open water temperatures fluctuate between 20-22 degrees during May and October.
