The Ocean Walker Stroke Technique was created by Adam Walker following shoulder injuries sustained during his first channel swim. The technique enabled Adam to continue and successfully complete 6 more channels, breaking records along the way and earning him the title, 1stBrit to complete the Oceans 7. The Ocean Walker technique looks effortless, and as well as being efficient in the water, you are not putting as much pressure on your shoulders as you would with a conventional front crawl. The use of core muscles, a still head and a 90 degree hip rotation are just a few of the key elements to this stroke that differentiates it to other techniques, and you are learning directly from the man who created it.
