Yesterday’s swim has really gotten a lot of people excited about open water and I’m still really stoked on the whole thing! I made it on the news last night at KSBY (click here to see the video) and I got a great write up from the Daily News of Open Water Swimming as well (read the article here). I even got a mention from a swim blog in the Faroe Islands!
This morning I got my hands on some video clips from the LiveSwim livestream so you can see a little more of what was going on out in the ocean, check it out!
I’ve gotten tons of positive feedback on the livestreaming experience. A lot of far away friends and locals told me that they were glued to their computers for like 3 hours watching the swim! Unfortunately we couldn’t stream the last hour due to rain but Chris did shoot some video of me getting to the Pismo Pier. I think as far as technological experiments at sea go this was a total success!
As a side note for those of you that don’t live around here… although yesterday was a pretty rough and tumble day for a swim today looks to be way worse… it’s been raining a lot with plenty of wind. I totally lucked out that my swim wasn’t today!
