That's a winter swimmers greeting. After the swim, well, we can find never ending ways of talking about it!
Whether you are an endurance swimmer or daily tea bagger, it is great exercise for both the mind and body. Swimming holistically connects you to your environment and it is a wonderful community. That is why I am a daily swimmer; rain, hail or shine.
We built this fun site for our community of swimmers, just to monitor and share temperatures or conditions. See below for details and please use the contact us for queries on joining up. Generally, to join up you should be an all year round dipper or swimmer with a friendly group of swimmers that would like to keep a record of sea temperatures over time. New swim locations are welcome, as are any questions, feedback or requests for new features. We are also researching permanent IOT temperature recording devices, if you have any experience in this area please let us know too.
Note my Disclaimer: nothing works, don't rely on this website service for anytime, use at your discretion, no liability what-so-ever, in fact, never swim or go near water, especially cold. Brrrh, crazy.
P.S. Travelling and wondering where to swim? We are also building a sister site for swimmers at AllSwims.au
OzSwim.co collects and plots your recorded ocean temperatures data from your smartwatch or digital thermometer. Once you are set up, all you need to do is record your swim as normal with your smartwatch.
There are currently 3 data inputs, manual, strava and BOM weather.
Note 1: to use the Strava activity Title field to override, you need to update it before it is processed.
Note 2: to revoke access to your strava details, in strava go to Strava - Profile - Settings - My Apps, then click 'Revoke Access' to ytPortPhillipBayMonitoring. Then contact us to retire you.
Suggested new features under consideration:
Updates on progress are posted on our waterlog.
Happy Swimming. Always respect the water and swim safely.
