Open Water Swimmers

The sport of Open Water Swimming has really grown over the past number of years and includes people with a whole range of motives for swimming in open water from novices to experts. As open water swimmers, we believe the main reason the majority of people participate in the sport is the sheer sense of exhilaration, freedom and sense of wellbeing you get from swimming in Open Water(Your Vitamin Sea!). It is no wonder that there is substantial scientific evidence on the benefits of Open water Swimming including: lowered blood pressure, improved circulation, improved fitness and mindfulness. Cold water immersion has also been proven to help with depression and anxiety. But apart from those benefits, how good do you feel after a swim in the Ocean? The real satisfaction and sense of well-being you get while chatting to your swim buddies over a hot tea after a long swim is second to none. 

Here at Tekrapod, we want you to continue to feel that real sense of freedom, without the hindrance of a conventional tow buoy. That is why it is so important to us to design a safety device that you can wear and forget, even in skins.  So after 13  different prototypes and 18 months of design and development, we believe we have achieved our goal.

So whether you’re a cold water specialist, a long distance swimmer, a surf life saver or you just like a quick dip, Tekrapod allows you and your loved ones the peace of mind that you have a safety device there, when you need it.

Remember to swim safely and always in a group!
