Love to Swim
Nothing feels better than a long cool-down dip in the pool or ocean when the summer sun’s high in the sky. And early-morning swims at the beach or local lido have to be the best way to start your day? Outdoor swimming is so good for the soul and it doesn’t have to be restricted to the warmer months. All-year-round swimming is growing in popularity, even if you don’t live in a tropical paradise. In this Love to Swim edition of the Tom & Teddy Magazine, we’ve been diving deep into the world of wild swimming (also known as open-water swimming) to discover how to get started, where to go and what to look out for. Take a read and be inspired to jump in for a colder-water splash at a river, reef, lake or lagoon near you!
