Welcome to Swansea University Wild Swimming Society!
We are a friendly inclusive club that want to make wild swimming as safe and accessible to students as possible. We will be arranging regular weekly dips and car shares, days out, weekend trips and a mixture of socials.
Everyone and anyone who wants to get outdoors are welcome to join, regardless of previous experience. There are also no rules for or against wearing wetsuits, wear whatever you feel most comfortable and safe in - even if you want to hop in with full hood, gloves and socks! There is also no obligation to swim if you wish to just join us at the beach or on a day/weekend trip - it's always useful to have someone to take photos or hold towels too!
What we recommend you bring on a weekly local dip:
- Hot drink/water
- Warm, dry clothes for after
- Money (Langland, Rotherslade and Caswell all have cafes if you want to grab a coffee)
- Friends and housemates!
Important dates for the this term
Tuesday 8am (sunrise)
Thursday 4:30pm (sunset hangover cure)
The location for each dip will usually be Langland, Rotherslade or Caswell - this will be confirmed closer to the dip based on tides and weather.
