Bryce Davies - Swim Wild Wales

My name is Bryce Davies. I am a Qualified Level 2 Open water coach, Beach lifeguard and Open Water swimmer currently living in Cardiff, Wales. 

I am a Pisces. I love swimming, and my passion is exploring the coastal waters, lakes and rivers of Wales (and further afield). I love the adventure of exploring new areas and discovering beautiful places to swim. Seeing the landscape from the water provides a whole new perspective to your environment, and is a constant inspiration.

My favourite thing to do is look on a map and find new routes that are off the beaten track, and work out how to swim them. I love long distance coastal swimming, and working out how to negotiate difficult stretches of coastlines. The whole process is addictive, from studying the weather, water movements and tides, right through to the physical challenges of training and swimming in often-changing conditions. 

My longest swim so far was In 2021. I swam across the Bristol channel from Penarth (my local beach) to Clevedon, a distance of 24km. It was a natural step in my journey, as I swim in the Bristol channel almost daily. England was constantly just there, waving to me from across the hazy water. It had to be done! 

I began coaching open water swimming as an extension of my own passion for adventurous swimming, and to encourage others to also share the huge positive impact that OWS can have on your physical and mental health. I work with people from all sorts of walks of life, from Triathletes training for events, kids in the local Surf Life saving club, and dippers and swimmers wanting to gain more confidence and knowledge in the sea.

For me personally, It's not always about being the fastest or most competitive, it’s about connecting with our environment and enjoying the adventure and challenge on whatever level suits you.

The water is for everyone, and with the right balance of knowledge, ability and respect, it can be enjoyed safely all year round.

It's great to be working as an ambassador with Swim Secure helping to bring confidence to swimmers in open water, wherever you are with your journey.
