Dwight Crum Pier To Pier Checkout Swim

Checkout swims will be done by the Lifeguards on 7/13, 7/20, and 7/21 from 9AM to 11AM. I am planning on doing the 9 AM on 7/21. Join me if you want. You should have already signed up for the swim. I will meet at Hermosa Pier at 8:30. Afterwards, we can maybe do a short practice swim, so come out for that even if you don't want to do the checkout.

The key things that they are looking for in this is not really how fast you are, although if you take so long they do not feel you can get finish the pier to pier within the time limit you may not pass. I think if you do the 500 meter swim in 20 minutes or better you will be good. That shouldn't be hard to make. They are also looking for your confidence level. They do not like it when people have to stop and backstroke or side stroke. I don't necessarily agree with this, but it is not my show. You will be best off if you can get in and swim it straight through, as smoothly as possible (note: not necessarily fast, don't get yourself out of breath). I recommend doing a little warm up before-hand.

    Think I'm gonna try some Yoga on the beach Sun after swimming at Bayshore.

    That is a required swim by the event to be qualified to swim in the event. This meetup is only for those who have signed up for the event.

    what does it mean "check out" swim?

    July 19, 2013

  • Dave

    Yes David is correct. Sorry for the confusion. I will send out an email tonight to explain what I did.

    Hey Dave. OK now i am a little confused....your msg says that you are doing the 7/20 checkout swim...did that change to 7/21? Or are you doing the check out swim 7/20 and no clinic then on Sunday clinic but no check out swim....sorry for getting so mixed up!

      Hey Chris - looks like Dave moved the group check out swim from Sat to Sun, and the Bayshore clinics to the 28th. See you Sunday?

      July 19, 2013

    how cold is the water usually? I am planning on doing the check out swim tomorrow and signing up today - thinking which division to sign up for...

    July 12, 2013

    • Ali M.

    • Ekaterina H

      I checked and it said 67. I signed up for wetsuit just in case, but going to test out without tomorrow if the allow. See you all there on the 4th!

      July 12, 2013

  • Ali M.

    You all should do it! It's a lot of fun. I did it last year and doing it again. :) The check out swim is easy. Water temp is about 65.

    Gonna do the checkout on the 13th, so that I can make the Malibu Tri clinic on the 20th.

    Hi Dave, glad to see you're back and swimming.
    I just signed up for the pier-to-pier too. I'm planning to do the check out swim on 7/13, but probably will come on 7/20 too for a practice swim. Oh, it says 8:30PM, not AM, on the meet up ;)
