noun - Naked swim is a non-wetsuit, non-neoprene open water swim. In the open water swimming community, a naked swim is not skinny-dipping (swimming without clothes); rather it is performed with a porous swimsuit, goggles, and possibly, a swim cap and ear plugs.

Naked swim is also a division or category where open water swimmers compete without wearing a wetsuit or any kind of neoprene.

Usage[edit]

The swimmer attempted a naked swim despite the snow on the coastline.
