In For A Swim On A Cold Winter's Day

SirBoboGargle

Its warmer in the water than out


lolesdf

water transfers heat 24 times quicker than air. so if both water and air is same temp, water will cool you much quicker than air


HagridHoudini

Yeah but it's warmer in the water than out

False. Black Bear

I watched an old bloke swimming on that bitterly cold day earlier this week down at Congwong beach at La Perouse. That is hard arse exercise. I was walking with 3 layers and I was damned cold. I can't imagine the cold exiting the water with that brisk breeze blowing.

I am a polar bear and it is honestly the best feeling in the world. Getting warm after a swim in really cold water is like crack to me. A bonus is that you usually get to exercise alone or with very few other people around.


sloppyrock

I'm 100% opposite. I hate the cold and kind of envy those that thrive in it. I'm quite at home in 35'c. The water was crystal clear as it can be in winter and he was completely alone as you suggest. It probably felt like getting into a luke warm bath considering the air temp and wind chill.

I've just been wearing my usual thin thermal undies, long pants, and a flannel shirt, but my neck has been unusually cool these last few days. Finally a reason to use [these](https://imgur.com/56pEq0x) (49" x 49" shemagh) that I bought last year. I roll one up and loosely place around my neck and tuck into my shirt, kind of like a cravat.

Must be from the Northern centrals or southern Tablelands. Always was great to be the only one in the beach in winter because it was warmer

PinkWhaleOrgy

It’s North Bondi

I live near the water and loads of elderly people swim in the bitterly cold winters. I always shudder when I see them doing laps in the baths. Brr. Fuck that.


_wildandfree

Great for the soul!


albeenyb

Great picture! The proportions of the coloured layers are pleasing to me.


Una_J

You crazy person, no way i would go for a swim in this kind of weather.


Venusflytrapp

Crazy

That's not a cold winters day/= #june212021


PinkWhaleOrgy

Glad I’m not working every day in the ocean here anymore. First time in 5 years. Doesn’t matter how many wetsuits you have on. Your entire soul becomes numb


Liquidlino1978

Looks like north curl curl?


Rant-O-Rama

North Bondi …but it’s not so obvious…


Liquidlino1978

Ah yeah. Amazing how similar the view is from both.


cizzibop101

Damn, Curly was my guess


sobody

There's always one, isn't there.


Rational-Peter

I do enjoy the Sydney Beaches in Winter just to mainly take a walk along the shoreline barefoot, I have gone swimming in mid July but not so much anymore


Pixelmite

I am getting cold just looking at this.
