Ocean Grease OWS Tip: We recommend that you think about your goggle selection before the big race. If it’s a cloudy or rainy day, you may choose goggles with clear, light blue or yellow lenses to brighten your surroundings and make it easier to see!! If it’s a bright and sunny day (normally like the day of the Rottnest Swim!) you may want mirrored or smoke lenses! If in doubt, pack both pairs in your swim bag! #openwaterswim #openwaterswimming #openwaterswimmer #openwaterswimmers #ows #oceanswims #oceanswimming #oceanswimmer #oceanswims #marathonswimming #marathonswimmer #lakeswimming #lakeswim #lakeswims #riverswimming #riverswim #triathlonswim #chafing #antichafe #oceangrease #rottnestswim #rottnestchannelswim #rottoswim #channelswim #channelswimming
Caught up with local athlete @ianhenry25 yesterday as he dives head first into tackling the Rottnest Island channel swim next year as a solo athlete while juggling the additional challenge of becoming a brand new Dad 👶. More of Ians progress over the coming months and hope to get some great footage on the big day 🏊‍♂️ Do you have a fitness story or journey that you would like filmed for you to share with the world? You might just be the inspiration somebody needs to start their own adventure. Please get in touch if you have a great story or challenge of your own you'd like to share 👊. #swim #swimming #swimmer #pool #training #fitness #journey #challenge #triathlon #swimtraining #soloswimmer #rottnestswim #endurance #endurancetraining #enduranceathlete #openwaterswimming #perthfitfam #fitperthfam #water #ocean #gopro #hero7 #goprooftheday #picoftheday #triwa #triathlonwa #oceanswim #underwater #sportphotography #sportsphotography

Amazing Rottnest Island and those cute little Quokkas! 😍 It was a real paradise with crystal clear water and white sand. I wish I could visit there again in summer time, when the water is warmer and wind is a little bit more gentle 😅 . . . #perth #australia #rottnest #rottnestisland #visitperth #travel_australia #westernaustralia #quokka #quokkas #beach #clearwater #clearwaterbeach #whitesand #whitesandbeach #perthbeaches #rottnestswim

The Queen of Butterfly @lisandra0108 showing her 👌 freestyle technique. A few things I look from this angle: 1. Shoulders and upper arm in one straight line when the hand is underneath the shoulders. 2. Fingers pointing down throughout the catch and pull 3. Arm angle of 100-120 just before hand passes beneath shoulders 4. Rotation of 33-45 degrees through shoulders at their furthest point of rotation. It’s a rocking side to side not a roll! 5. The hand should take a slightly curved path, almost like it’s tracing the outside line of the body ie a bit wider past shoulders and narrower at hips. 6. Hand exits close to hip You don’t need to all of these but when you do it’s 🚀 #swimtechnique #openwaterswimming #rottnestswim #swimming #swimstrong
Ocean Grease OWS Tip- if competing, do not apply Ocean Grease before having your competition number written on or stamped on your body. Lubricants may prevent ink or race tattoos adhering to the surface of your skin!

#traveltuesday || To the beautiful west coast of sunny Oz. Starting off the beach for the team event of the #rottoswim because I got horrendously sea sick the year prior & my kind buddies thought this should help! 🤢🤢 - A big day out but so much fun & always a great party on the beautiful island. 🏊‍♀️🏊‍♀️🍾🍾 - The bruise on my leg.. from falling off my bike 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ It happens.. - complements the spots! . . . . . #trithisworld #rottnestswim #rottnestisland #nosharks #smuglettes #swimming #swim #beach #westcoast #cottesloebeach #vorgee #roka #funswim #teamevent #endurance #health #fitness #travel #ocean #fitspo #fun #lifestyle #swimbikerun #happyplace #triathlon #trialthlontraining #seeaustralia #outsideisfree

“Swimmers both open water and pool” It is well documented that salt water can help some conditions like eczema and psoriasis, it can even help skin with hydration and water retention if moisturised correctly after. Unfortunately the same can not be said for chlorine swimming pools. Chlorine can irritate the skin and cause dryness, itchiness to rashes and burns. We are receiving some wonderful feedback from swimmers both salt water (ocean) and pool water.💦💦💦 Thank you ✨💛💛 “My skin seems to drink it” “My skin feels so much better” “It just absorbs right in and I always use a little more after swimming.” . . . #faceoil #karrinaturals #openwaterswimming #swimmeet #swimming #swimmingpool #swimmers #plantbasedskincare #allnatural #luxuryskincare #crueltyfreeskincare #skincare #australianmadeskincare #hydrated #hydratedskin #hydratingskincare #backtonature #cleanskincare #rottnestswim #busseltonjettyswim #vogueaustralia @vogueaustralia
“I didn’t know what the Paralympics was but I was watching TV and it was the first time that I identified people that looked like me achieving something. Because the only real experience I had with people with disability was in hospital corridors—and they’re not really happy places or places where you are set to achieve great things.” - Our fourth Rottnest Swim story is up online now. Get to know Katrina Porter- Australian Paralympic gold medalist, Associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers, member of the North Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club, and all-round legend. #centreforstories #rottnestswim
Even though the Port to Pub event was cancelled the Subi Sports team were still hard at work on the weekend. It was a fantastic effort by all swimmers who covered many kms in very rough conditions! #porttopub #rottnestswim #rottnest #westernaustralia #softtissuretherapist #subisports #subiacosportsmassage #subisportsmassageclinic
“The worst that can happen is that you try and you fail. But the hard part is getting to the point where you actually give something a go. I think a lot of us are scared to go beyond that goal-setting space.” - Our third Rottnest Swim story is up! Peter Klauz is a 30-year-old man from Perth. Having completed the English Channel Swim, and a double crossing of the Rottnest Channel Swim, Peter set a new goal to improve his single crossing time. There’s just one small catch—he doesn’t like swimming. - You can read his full story online now at www.centreforstories.com #centreforstories #rottnestswim
KSC’s Sarah braved the cold conditions to compete in the @porttopub swim on Saturday racing across the Indian Ocean to @rottnestislandwa fantastic job Sarah 🤙🏼
Yesterday a team of Stirling Raiders girls took to the ocean for the annual @porttopub swim. Unfortunately the weather gods were not on our side and after a gruelling 3 hours the event was cancelled due to dangerous conditions. The teamwork and resilience these girls showed during the swim was incredible and we are all proud of the efforts they made! Go Raiders!
The Basin, Rotto...tropical paradise 🌴

Support paddling for an endurance ocean swimmer. So slow and yet so intense! Keep the line, monitor health, monitor speed, keep track of time to the next feed, provide cheerful encouragement, liaise with support boat, look out for sharks....

A strong tailwind made for fast but choppy conditions at the 2018 Rottnest Channel swim. A shark sighting and sinking support boat made for an even more interesting day. Congrats to @solwright and @heidigan1 on the wins. 📷 @paparazziontherun #rottnestswim
A couple of years ago when I did the #rottnestswim @drchrisbrown gave me the biggest hug at the end! Worth #swimming 20 k's for😍
A great day swimming to #Rotto on Saturday as a duo with child number 3(Hamish)...Catch a ferry??! Nahhh.. Swimming is better, just a little longer. We made it in 5 hrs 33 mins helped along by an easterly wind so no complaints there!.. Here is child number 2(Alysha) making sure mummy doesn’t get hypothermia! Thanks love 😘 #rottoswim #rottnestswim #rottnestswim2018 #rotto #takemetotheisland #rottnest #openwaterswimming
Absolute pleasure doing half a Rottnest swim with this crew including @chriscogram 😂 so unfortunate that the shark meant we had to get out at the 13km mark but still proud as punch of our achievements #rottnestswim 🏊🏾‍♂️ #seeyanextyear
Maybe next year we should swim? 🏊🏼‍♂️ @katedavies1 #rottnestswim #rottoswim2018
#congratulations to our #rottnestchannelswim participant @zoe_883 for completing the #rottnestswim to #rottnestisland in 6hrs 29 mins and also for #fundraising over $8.3k for #parkinsonswa here's some pictures from after the race on #rottnest #inthistogether #parkinsons #parkinsonsawareness #parkinsonsdisease
Had such a great weekend paddling for my amazing swim team! While they did the hard yards in the water fighting off sharks I sat in this position and occasionally paddled forwards (the lovely Easterly wind made it really easy!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Regardless my hip flexors and shoulder blades/upper back are feeling it today so I've included my go to stretches for these two areas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe right for a hip flexor stretch and swipe again for a beautiful demo of my favourite "thread the needle" version which you can do with a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hip Flexor Stretch: 🔹Posterior pelvic tilt (tuck your tailbone under) + knee bend + trunk side bend. 🔹5 x 5 second hold, come up slightly in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thread the Needle: 🔸Hold a band while rotating through to one side, partner rotates up pulling against the tensioned band to add to your stretch. 🔸Hold for a deep breath and swap positions. 4-5x on each side.
What a superstar! One of our very own @josiepage_ was the 3rd female in the solo #rottnestswim 🙌🏼. Josie completed the race in 4hr 25min! Can you believe she is only 18?! Well done Josie, we are so proud of you!
