Video Analysis scroll up

Stroke technique analysis using video footage taken on Ocean Walker swim camps.

Ocean Walker swim camps are designed to improve your stroke technique along with many other aspects of swimming. The video analysis sessions are invaluable as you can see how you progress throughout the course of the day or week!

You will see how you look in the water starting with your "old" stroke through to the final swim, where you will see how much you have progressed. It is an incredibly useful tool and as well as reviewing footage during the camp, you also receive a link to your video so that you can refer to it at any time.

(Underwater filming only applies to swimming pool master class due to clarity of open water not being good enough)
