Skimming across the water, the soft 'Skwim Disk' propels this new swim-sport!
SKWIM ® is the "original water-disk sport" gaining popularity worldwide. Played in both shallow and deep water, SKWIM progresses with your ability, from an engaging learn-to-swim game to possibly the most electric, athletic, and entertaining water-sport of all time. If you're looking for a fun, fast-action water-sport for the whole family, SKWIM might be just right for you! Join the many thousands, ages 5 to 85, that have discovered SKWIM, and help bring this growing international sport to your pool-deck, dock or beach!.
SKWIM is quick to learn, offering early and continued success, whether you're a beginner or advanced swimmer. If new to the water, "Shallow-Pool" SKWIM captivates with exciting disk-interaction and strategic play-making, while teaching you practical water safety skills. If you're an avid or competitive swimmer, "Deep-Water" and "Open-Water" SKWIM challenges you with explosive hydrodynamics and progressive disk-mastery. It's amazing to watch, therefore an engaging spectator sport! But you won't be in your seat long, as SKWIM invites you in to play!
It's a great lifetime activity that helps build "water-safe, water-smart, water-strong community"! "Skwimmers" can advance their game well into their thirties and beyond. In SKWIM,quickness and speed can be overcome by disk-skill and game knowledge, adding value to older, seasoned players. Experience in soccer, basketball, hockey, polo, and ultimate, all contribute to the like-strategies of this unique water-sport. SKWIM then adds the dimensional aspect of 360 degree scoring, and the defensive creativity to respond.
The Skwim-Disk, made from XL Extralight ® , is soft and flexible for use in most all aquatic settings, and engineered to glide smoothly across the water. The Skwim-Fins comfortably and effectively enhance power and balance propulsion, freeing your hands to play the game.
