OC Open Water Swims
From OpenwaterpediaOC Open Water Swims is a nearly 100-person Google Group of open water swimmers dedicated to publicizing open water swimming practices and events in Orange County and surrounding areas. Interested swimmers can request an invitation to join the pod via email@example.com.
The pod includes swimmers of various levels of speed and experience and a number of enthusiastic, passionate, knowledgeable ocean swimmers. The group also includes the members of the Oak Streakers, an open water swimming pod in Laguna Beach. Often, training sessions, themed swims, and birthday swims are held in Laguna Beach, California.
Members often participate in and report on open water swimming competitions, events and happenings around the world. They welcome other friends and open water swimmers to their training sessions where swimmers can swim traditionally (i.e., no wetsuits) or with wetsuits if the water is deemed too cold.
