100 x 100s Open Water Style

In the same holiday season where hundreds of pods of swimmers are doing their annual 100 x 100s in pools across the world, the Oak Streeters, a pod of open water swimmers in Laguna Beach, California, is set to do their 100 x 100s open water style this year.

Instead of doing one hundred one hundreds in a flat-water, warm-water, chlorinated setting while swimming circle pattern, the pod of channel swimmers, marathon swimmers, and open water swimmers have set their century swim course in the dynamic environment of the Pacific Ocean at Laguna Beach.

We will start in chest-deep water right by the lifeguard tower on Main Beach and head straight out to the outside buoy. This is 100 yards to the buoy, 200 yards round-trip. We will go back and forth 50 times to get in our 10,000 or 100 x 100’s. Toes in the water at 7 am this Saturday,” explains Scott Zornig.
