My name is Adam Walker I am the first British person to swim the 7 toughest ocean swims in the world and one of 6 to complete it and last year was nominated for World Open Water Swimmer of the year.
I swam the Cook Strait April 2014, where dolphins accompanied for 1 hour 30 mins when there was a shark underneath me. The video went viral see link:

This is my 3rd time of visiting Auckland to run a one off 2 day swim camp for swimmers and triathletes. So you know I have created a swim stroke called ‘The Ocean Walker technique’ which takes pressure off the shoulders and generates power from the core. I created it when I had 2 shoulder operations and advised by the surgeon not to swim again and it got me across 6 more channels after English Channel.
See article I did for 220 tri magazine: http://www.220triathlon.com/

Here is a link to one of my stroke videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
I carryout swim camps worldwide where I coach my unique 5 stages to my stroke. The course is in-depth with detailed video analysis and teaches the way to power the stroke without using the chest. The stroke increases speed and efficiency with less effort.
I have attached the link for Auckland if you wouldn’t mind sharing it with your members I would appreciate it. They may also may find my other blogs useful feel free to share.
