HISTORY AND VALUES

OPEN WATER SWIMMING

Brief history and values

Since 2008 I was able to discover that the swimming hours invested in many swimming pools could be practically capitalized in the natural setting. For this I designed a theoretical material that is easy to understand in order to complement it with the level of swimming of each person. This combined with the organization of trips to different parts of the world where being able to safely implement the contents transmitted at sea was the starting point for a wonderful story full of seas and pleasant swims in contact with nature . With my team of Lifeguards and collaborators we provide the necessary security framework to achieve our goal of achieving independence and safety in open water swimming.

As a pioneer in organizing this type of journey in the Latin American region, I would like to share with you a brief summary of the places visited and the highlights of each journey. Also what was my North and inspiration for the development and execution of the wonderful of entering people into the sea swimming and also being able to share the love of God.

I don't know

The Open Water Crossings are the answer to this need with the premise that "If you like swimming, swim in the sea". That is why I say that we are a body of Lifeguards that instead of rescuing people from the sea, more and more people enter the sea to enjoy it safely.

YEAR 2014

Summary

I don't know

In this year there was no specific word from God, we had to look at Him and trust that everything He had spoken to us the previous years was real. Faith was essential to achieve the goals. This was the year of the great crisis after living 7 years of wonderful experiences, but also investing a lot of effort, time and resources. And taking risks, I assess that the project cannot be sustained economically and I decide to make the last crossing that December 2014 and then end the idea that many swim in the sea and Open Water is the channel to achieve it.

Previously we had also made another trip in San Clemente in March without major results since the call, although we were encouraged that many decided to return, we had an ebb of people of approximately 70%.

I don't know

That same year God surprises us with 60 people registered in December, everything took a 180 degree turn and again a word caressed my ears, the 7 fat cows and the 7 skinny cows, this economic cycle that history raises as abundance and scarcity in Open Water it had started backwards and now really the best was ahead.
