Rough Water Swimming Remains The Same

The La Jolla Rough Water Swim.

The Waikiki Roughwater Swim.

Open water swimming used to be called many different things in the 20th century: long distance swimming, Rough water swimming, wild swimming, ocean swimming, and marathon swimming.

Rough water swimming (or roughwater swimming) is simply swimming in open bodies of water, generally in an ocean or sea. It can also refer to swimming any distances in outdoor bodies of water such as lakes, reservoirs, rowing basins and rivers.

Whatever it is called now and whatever it was called previously, rough was the operative word as shown by Bruckner Chase swimming in Amerika Samoa.
