. The Swim Buddy Swim Buoy - Swim Safety Float for Open Water Swim Training What is it?

It's far enough behind you so that your arm stroke doesn't touch it; it sits in front of your legs in the crook of your knees underneath, and your kicking is not affected either. So in that sense, it doesn't affect you or cause drag, which is surprising, but that's because the bow wave you create with your body eddies behind and even pushes it, which is quite interesting ..read more

I came into a broken Aquatics department, where the previous supervisor had cursed out the staff before storming out and destroying all the paperwork and resources needed to do the jo ..read more

We've switched to tissue paper within our packages. So when it leaves the factory, there's no longer the ..read more
