All Faster Freestyle Swim Camps are hosted by Hall of Fame swimmer Karlyn Pipes who will be both your coach and guide while you swim and explore some of the most amazing open water in the world.
After one week in Hawaii, you will leave your stress behind while you gain confidence in the open water. You will leave Kona a much better swimmer with improved technique and noticeable gains in both your speed and endurance.
Small group size…space is limited to 8
All Kona, Hawaii swim camps include:
Two private swim technique sessions in Karlyn’s Endless Pool with detailed video analysis. One session will take place at the beginning of camp (or before if you prefer) and one later in the week so you can SEE and FEEL how much improvement you have made. More details about your AMAZING Endless Pool session here.
Five gorgeous unique and exciting open water swims in warm, clear water with plenty of tropical fish and friendly marine life to observe. We will swim at few world-famous Big Island beaches, but will spend a lot more time exploring little known secret swim spots that Karlyn can’t wait to share with you. Swim length is approximately 2k to 4k and depends on conditions and your energy level.
Staff will be using Go-Pros and underwater cameras to to provide you with video feedback of your stroke, capture marine life in action and to provide you with daily footage of our adventure! Pics and videos will be texted to you later that day.
Two dinners hosted at Karlyn’s home in Kona. Meet and greet welcome party and a final night farewell party. Spouses/partners/friends are welcome to join us.
Food: Brunch will be served after each swim along with drinks, fruit, nuts, bars, etc. Previous campers have RAVED about the food offerings and we promise…you will never go hungry!
Camp sized is limited eight so you will receive the attention you need to feel more comfortable in the open water and improve your technique.
Safety first! At least two Red Cross rescue-trained lifeguards will accompany every swim along with one person a SUP.
SWAG: Custom long sleeve dry-tech tee shirt, BOCO custom visor, a silicone swim cap and an Aloha tote bag.
