Like Kate Rew, Adam Walker, Simon Murie and other aquapreneurs around the world, the Wild Swimming Brothers are taking their passion for the open water and commercializing their activities for the benefit of others.

"This week we announce an exciting new collaboration with the mighty Red Bull to bring you exciting, new and fun Wild Swimming content," reported Calum Hudson who forged a niche in the wild swimming community with his brothers Jack and Robbie Hudson.

"We're very proud, humbled and excited to announce our latest collaboration with Red Bull for a series of pieces on Wild Swimming for Redbull Adventure. Little Brother Jack was lucky enough to take over the reins from Pip Stewart for two days this week as Guest Adventure Editor in their Bermondsey office in London.

We think you'll love his beginner's guide to wild swimming in the U.K. and hope it gives anyone who has not tried it, the confidence to go for their first wild swim. It takes you through five different wild swims, starting with a beautiful dip and ending with a whirlpool swim

Read about Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye (Scotland), Serpentine Lido in London (England), Ullswater in the Lake District (Cumbria), Durdle Door in Dorset (England), and Corryvreckan in the Gulf of Corryvreckan (Scotland)here.

The Wild Swimming Brothers recently launched a new YouTube channel aimed at wild swimmers. "We're really excited about our new YouTube Channel, focused on videos from our expeditions, tips and advice on how to get into wild swimming and tours of our favourite swim spots and locations."

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
